Australian Maths Competition

Recently, 12 Tin Can Bay students entered the Australian Mathematics Competition, run by the University of Canberra. All students went really well, with one student receiving a Certificate of Distinction for scoring in the top 20% – Lucas Galvin-Ridge.

Five students also received a Certificate of Credit for scoring in the top 55% – Harrison Maker, Angus Riley, Raine Parslow, Adam Nelson and Tehmia Masri. Congratulations to all!

Secondary camp

Last week a group of 21 fantastic students from Yrs 7-9 attended three days of camp at Maranatha Camp, Boulder Creek, Gympie. To be eligible for the camp students had to have behaviour and learning that lived up to the TCB 3 Agreements, Be Safe, Be Respectful, Be A Learner.

They all certainly lived up to these agreements during the three days of challenging and fun activities including Tower of Tremble, Archery, High Ropes and Abseiling, Rocket Ball, Leap of Faith and Bushcraft. Congratulations to all who attended. You did TCB proud.
