The northern heat of the annual MAT Mathematics Relay was held at Scotch Oakburn last weekend. Congratulations to the Year 11/12 team comprised of Chi Canty, Cassie Silberberg, Addison Djatschenko and Sandy Wood who came first in their event.

The second Year 11/12 team of Zoe Bremner, Lachie Frame, Zara Richman and Tom Gatenby also did very well, placing third.

In the Year 9/10 event, the two teams of Xavier Nesbit, Charlotte Ball and Nandun Harry Peiris (Jhett Marshall was absent) and Lincoln Giasli, Madeline Mitchell, Varani Harry Peiris and Chloe Robins came equal third – a great achievement.

The Year 7 team […]

It is extremely pleasing to be able to announce the results of the recent Tasmanian Japanese Speech Contest where over 300 contestants from around the State competed.  This enrichment activity gave students an opportunity to use their spoken Japanese skills.  Year 7 students prepared and delivered a self-introduction about 20 sentences long, while the Year 8 students delivered a memorised speech about “My Place – Tasmania”.  Year 9 students delivered a pre-prepared speech, which they constructed themselves, about what they did last Saturday. All students worked hard for this event and perhaps the hardest part was being videoed, as entries […]

Thank you to the Physical Education staff team led by Nicky Reid for all the planning, preparation and organisation of the full-day program designed to enable every student to have a number of opportunities to support and represent their House team. Also thanks to all staff […]

Term 3 Reflections

After an incredibly busy Term 3, we can stop and reflect on the achievements, both individual and collective, of the College.

As we continue to embrace the Learner Attributes, we see these play out more and more in our everyday activities, whether that be in the classroom, on the sporting field, in the Performing Arts or in the Public Speaking arenas. More recently, in assembly this week, we recognised and celebrated student success in the Mat Mathematics Relay, the Evatt UN Debating Competition, Social Innovations award recipients for the Enterprising Students Workshop, inaugural SATIS Volleyball finalists, as well as […]

This week saw our Therapy Dog, Paddy, as our special visitor at our Blessing of the Animal Service and who, I believe, barked at just the right place.  He is such a precious animal for us all to see, pat and engage with, as we walk around the Penquite Campus, so blessing him for his purpose was a real honour.

Next Term, the theme for the Term will be ‘kindness’, our students’ 4th Spiritual Core Value.  I am looking forward to serving our community with the wondering of “how do we actually embody […]

A reminder to all students that have selected football as their winter sport for 2023, you will need to register with East Launceston Junior Football Club. Registration goes live on 1 November. Register immediately so you don’t miss out. Registrations that are late may not be accepted once teams are full, so it is important that you are a member in time for the next football season.
