Education Week: Fun and engaging programs to help children thrive
With Education Week fast approaching, Torquay College is celebrating the success of welcoming its community back through the gates for Term 2.
There has been much to love about being back together in classrooms, out in the yard and enjoying the wonderful resources available at the College.
Principals Jessica and Emily have commented on the enjoyment that has come with having school-based events again and more simply being able to enjoy what makes us so special, being together.
Torquay College has had a rich history of community events, partnerships and support.
With this in mind, the school team looks forward to planning more and more opportunities for connection as the year progresses.
The Teddy Bears’ Picnic was a highlight of Term One.
Foundation students and Year 6 Buddies came together, along with their families, to celebrate our annual picnic and parade.
The students competed for their houses in Cross Country with many progressing through to the District event, all held down at Front Beach.
Although weather impacted our Year 3-6 House Athletics held on the grounds, it didn’t dampen enthusiasm with the event being held over two days at school.
Torquay College is passionate about providing engaging learning programs that meet the needs of its students and enable all to succeed as well as drawing on a sense of fun.
From LOTE-Indonesian teaching to the Stephanie Alexander Kitchen Garden Foundation program, teachers engage students in their own educational and emotional learning journey.
This is done through contemporary inquiry-based learning, which is supported by a highly motivated teaching team and strong ICT, Science, Sustainability, Intervention, Physical Education, Visual and Performing Arts Programs.
The three College values of Respect, Friendship and Doing Your Best support the College commitment to a whole child approach to education.
Torquay College believes every child should be happy, healthy, safe, engaged, supported and challenged to grow in their educational environment.
The College looks forward to welcoming the community for guided tours during Education Week; Tuesday, May 24 and Thursday, May 26 at 9.30am and midday for new families and 2pm on Wednesday, May 25 for current families.
