CELEBRATING EXCELLENCE!

Last night at our Tindale Campus, we hosted our Recognition of Excellence Awards for 2023. We shone a spotlight on our remarkable students from Year 7 to 11 who have gone above and beyond in their studies.

EMBRACING AND EXCHANGING EXPERIENCES

One of the unique aspects of our vibrant educational community is the constant stream of Japanese Exchange student groups that visit us throughout the year. These interactions offer our students a wonderful opportunity to experience diverse cultures and foster global friendships.

We've already had the pleasure of hosting two separate groups this year. One group joined our Year 7s at the JTC Marine Centre and took part in a variety of outdoor activities while the next group visited our Tindale Campus, delving into fun science experiments, exploring our library โ€“ which arenโ€™t typically in Japanese schools, and meeting our Therapy Dog, Hamish - a unique and lovable part of our JTC family!

We are excited about continuing our partnership with the Exchange Program. Our students greatly benefit from working together with our Japanese visitors in their LOTE (Language Other Than English) program within the college.

At JTC, we firmly believe in the power of shared learning experiences and are proud to offer such unique opportunities to our students. Here's to more cultural exchanges, shared laughter, and learning together!

JACKETS JOURNEY: LEAVERS LEGACY

One of the most cherished traditions for our Year 12 students is the arrival of their official Leavers Jackets. This iconic moment represents the start of their farewell journey, and we're excited to announce that our 2024 Leavers got to experience this rite of passage today.

Despite the 38-degree heat, which ideally isn't perfect for sporting oversized college jackets, there's something about the mix of nostalgia and anticipation that makes throwing the jacket on worthwhile. It's a symbol of their final high school year, a testament to the hard work, dedication, and the values of Excellence, Respect, and Commitment that they've upheld.

If you spot our Year 12s in their brand-new jackets, don't hesitate to give them a shout-out. Congratulate them on reaching this significant milestone and cheer them on as they embark on their final year.

SPLASHING INTO 2024

Yesterday, our Year 7 students embarked on a memorable day at the JTC Marine Centre in Dawesville. It was heartwarming to see them bond and build trust in a relaxed, fun environment, participating in an array of water and land-based activities.

We take immense pride in fostering an atmosphere that encourages trust, inclusivity and camaraderie. This day of shared laughter, learning, and bonding will undoubtedly be a cherished memory as our Year 7s reminisce about their early days of high school. More than just a fun day, it serves as a platform for friendships that will extend well beyond Year 12 and into their adult lives.

These shared experiences are the very first steps in our Year 7s' high school journey, equipping them to take on new challenges together. Here's to the start of a remarkable adventure, the beginning of lifelong friendships, and the laying of a strong foundation for a rewarding high school experience at JTC.

MAKING WAVES AND BREAKING THE HEAT!

Our Year 7 Surf Science students at John Tonkin College dove into a day of water competency grading at the Mandurah Aquatic & Recreation Centre.

Mrs. Naidoo's eager students kicked off the day with some ice-breaking games before taking a refreshing plunge as temperatures climbed.

Back on campus, the buzz of air conditioners provided a cool sanctuary as students continued their learning journey indoors. At JTC, we're not just about books and tests; we're about providing diverse experiences that make learning exciting.

๐ŸŒŠ AHOY, SKIPPERS!

A massive shout-out to these Year 9 Surf Science Specialist Program students! They've successfully navigated their way to earning their Department of Transport Recreational Skippers Tickets this term, a nationally-recognised certificate of competency, under the guidance of Surf Science teacher, Miss Eckersley and then assessed by Mr Hayes, a qualified RST assessor and our Marine Studies teacher for our senior students.

This achievement empowers them to operate a recreational vessel with a motor that exceeds 6 horsepower (4.5kW) right here in Western Australia. It's a clear demonstration of the practical skills and knowledge they've gained through the Surf Science Program, ensuring they can safely command the waters.

We're bursting with pride at their hard work and dedication.

Keep riding the wave of success, JTC students! ๐Ÿšค

EMBRACING NEW BEGINNINGS

Today at our JTC Tindale Campus, we were buzzing with excitement as we hosted our final Transition Day, where we warmly welcomed our incoming Year 7s for 2024 to experience a day of learning at JTC.

Over the year, we've conducted two Transition Days. These days provide our students with the opportunity to get acquainted with their new environment, meet their teachers, navigate through a new timetable, and get a glimpse of the classes they'll be taking part in over the next six years of their educational journey.

This is a fantastic time for our new students to start building new friendships. Together, they share the thrill and anticipation of moving to a new school environment. We're here to support them at every turn, and we're eager to see what they'll accomplish.

Our MET library is currently showcasing the brilliant work completed by our Year 10 Photography students' final assessment.

Each student was given the task of creating a photograph that truly represents them, reflecting their passions and interests. Through extensive research and brainstorming, they embarked on a journey to capture their unique personalities.

These captivating images provide a glimpse into their world and highlight their true passions.

While our students have now taken their full photography portfolios home, we are excited to announce that this assessment showcase will be relocated to the Tindale Library next week. This gives all of our students the opportunity to appreciate and be inspired by the exceptional work of our aspiring artists.

A NEW WAVE OF STUDENTS

Our 2024 Year 7 Surf Science Specialist students and their families recently joined us at the JTC Marine Centre in Dawesville for a parent information session. It was an exciting opportunity for our marine enthusiasts to meet the brilliant team behind the Surf Science Specialist and Marine Studies Programs.

During the session, our students had the chance to explore the state-of-the-art facilities and familiarise themselves with our grounds, boat ramp, and classrooms, where they will be diving into fascinating topics such as winds, tides, weather, and even studying dolphin behaviours.

We were proud to highlight the positive environmental impact our Surf Science Specialist students have made locally with the incredible community initiatives which we have been part of, including Reel It In, Estuary Guardians, Black Bream Restocking Program and the Mussel Project โ€“ just a few.

On Friday 1 December we have invited all of our Year 7s for 2024 to join us for an Orientation Day at our Tindale Campus. If youโ€™re enrolling into JTC for 2024 ENROLMENTS ARE DUE NOW at both Tindale and MET Campuses. Reach out to our team on 9583 0400 (Tindale) and 9583 0500 (MET) for any questions.
