LTC’s Georgia Collins and Anita Greenslade-Palmer (two of the college’s Year 12 Aboriginal students) were honoured for their completion of the Australian Indigenous Mentoring Experience (AIME) at a celebratory dinner hosted by the University of Canberra on Wednesday 26 September 2018.

The dinner celebrated a Canberra-wide graduation of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Yr 10 and Yr 12 students. The girls had a great time. Well done and thanks to Darren Brady and the AIME team for the wonderful programme opportunity.

Students Need School Libraries: The Films – a resounding success!

As part of the soon to be launched national campaign, Students Need School Libraries, three talented LTC Year 12 Media students were commissioned to create a series of short films to promote the message. These films were launched at Lake Tuggeranong College Library on Thursday 20 September to a crowd of over 30 people.

LTC Teacher Librarian (and campaign coordinator for Students Need School Libraries), Holly Godfree, LTC Media teacher, Stefan Kussy, and Media student Andrew, introduced the campaign and the films to those that gathered and then showed a select number of films ahead of the national campaign’s official launch on October 16. Popcorn was provided for the audience in true movie-going style and the evening had a celebratory feel as the culmination of 18 months preparation came to fruition.

Congratulations to all who were involved in the success of these films and in preparing for the launch evening!

I am pleased to announce that the LTC performance group won the Korea Performance Contest organised by the Korean government.

Lorick Dynas Palawan, Jess Lungkhot, Shyrell Deleon and Nikita Thomas presented a wonderful performance which impressed the entire audience. The win was well deserved given the dedication and hard work put into the performance preparation.

I also want to congratulate all of the students who supported and participated in the excursion. All the students behaved in a responsible and mature manner, which reflected well on our college.

Again, thanks to everyone for the amazing support.

LTC a finalist in the 2018 Korean Performance Contest

I am thrilled to announce that students from the Korean language class and the Korean participation unit at LTC qualified for the finals of the 2018 KOREA PERFORMANCE CONTEST organised by the Korean Government.

Approximately 40 schools (mostly from the Sydney area) competed in dance, drama, and art in the performance section. 30 high schools submitted a video file or created a YouTube of their performance, of which six (6) were selected for the final performance.

LTC students Elizabeth Jongerden-Armarego, Mia Stricke, Lorick Dynas Palawan, Jess Lungkhot, Shyrell  De-leon, Nikita Thomas, and special guest Dain Ko from Telopea Park High School will be participating in the performance competition on 25 September in Sydney.

I am very proud of our students who only had three (3) days to prepare and submit their video file. They worked very hard to complete their entry to the competition.

Please congratulate the students, and also Eddie Roberts (year 11) for the amazing IT assistance.

Enjoy 😉
