This year’s Student Led Conferences saw the Year Three students shine, as they confidently shared and celebrated their achievements with loved ones. It was wonderful to see students reflect on their learning and own their future goals.
In Year 4 we have been investigating the First Fleet and First Navigators, as apart of our Inquiry unit. The students researched a person on the First Fleet or a First Navigator and completed a factual narrative letter based on their character. They came to school dressed as this person and created a living history museum, where they presented to family and friends.

In very sunny and warm conditions, 40 Torquay College athletes ventured to the Landy Field Athletics Track to participate in the Bellarine Division Athletics Carnival. To have 40 students qualify for such a high level of competition is an achievement in itself. To then witness each of the students compete with such focus and determination was a pleasure to see and is something of which they should be very proud. The placegetters on the day were: INDI ELLIOT- 1ST place 100m
