The Year 12 Graduation Mass and farewell ceremony last Thursday was enhanced by the singers and instrumentalists in the Music Ministry group. I congratulate these students for their efforts and thank them for the extra time and energy they put into rehearsals to ensure that this very important occasion in the life of the College was musically enriched.  The psalm was prayerfully sung by Year 12 student Nicholas Marxsen.  I wish our senior students all the very best for the future.


Thank you in advance to the Year 7 and 8 students in the Music Ministry Group who will sing and play at the Middle School Advent Liturgy this Friday.


The Rockhampton Little Theatre presented Oscar Wilde for Juniors at the Walter Reid Cultural Centre on the weekend.  The Happy Prince was performed by the junior members of the RLT (including some TCC students) and The Devoted Friend was performed by TCC Year 10 and 11 drama students. Congratulation to the director, our own Miss Quinn and the students on the performance of these great classic plays.


The Music Department is investigating a new program to make communication with parents and students an easier process. Parents will soon be emailed information so that new and returning students can enrol in the Instrumental Music Program.

Year 8 student Luca Mella plays the lead role of Buddy and Andrew Filmer (Year 10), Julia Jones (Year 7), and Sophie Neil (Year 9) are cast members. We wish them all the best for this fun Christmas show.


I take this opportunity to thank the parents who have given generously of their time and energy to support the cultural pursuits of the College by their fundraising efforts.

Grateful thanks to the staff members who give generously of their time and expertise, often above and beyond the call of duty, to ensure that the students at TCC are given the best possible cultural opportunities.
