Family time at the school Christmas concert: Braxton and Kodey Schmerse with Lucie Tansley
The School year will start for all Tin Can Bay students on Wednesday January 27, following the Australia Day Public Holiday on January 26.
The School will be closed on Monday January 25, as Tin Can Bay Staff will be holding their Pupil Free Day during the last week of the Summer vacation.
The Principal and staff wish all Tin Can Bay State School students and families a safe and relaxing holiday, and look forward to working with you again next year.

The Swimming Carnival held at the Tin Can Bay Pool last Thursday was a huge success despite the windy conditions. Student participation was outstanding, and team spirit and excellent behaviour was on full display. Congratulations to our Age Champions and thanks to Mr Arthur and Miss Sauer for organising the event.
