Principal's Welcome

A very warm welcome to our College website! It’s easy to say ‘welcome’, but we truly mean it. Thank you for exploring our website. I hope it gives you an insight into what we offer.

We believe in building community and we would love to partner with you in the education of your child. We know from research that learning outcomes are optimised when parents and carers are actively involved in their child’s education. We communicate regularly with our families and also hold educational parent seminars throughout the year, plus a lot of other events – you’ll be busy!

We believe in the importance of educational research here at TCC. Our teachers are taught the data-proven strategies and skills that have the biggest impact on student learning. We believe that teachers are learners too, so we make sure they have the training they need to be effective. We have a teacher mentor program where experienced teachers work with colleagues in the classroom, providing feedback so that they continually grow. We are blessed with a very committed, talented, generous, well-qualified and hard-working staff. They all have a genuine heart for working with young people.

We believe that Biblical values, which most people see as traditional values, are good for children and give them a solid foundation for adulthood. Our College values are compassion, humility, respect, integrity, self-control and trustworthiness. The first letter of each value makes the name CHRIST, who is the cornerstone of our College. We expect our students to not only subscribe to these values but also grow in them.

We believe our students have an amazing experience at TCC; our parents keep telling us! We believe in developing and empowering young people who will impact their world and make a difference for Jesus. We have sent out doctors, farmers, nurses, teachers, mechanics, retail assistants, marine biologists, professional sportsmen and women, real estate agents, dieticians, engineers and lawyers.

If you’d like to know more, please come and visit us. We’ll make you feel welcome.
