16 students, two teachers and one parent visited No. 8 Anshan High School in China between 3 – 14 October 2016 as part of the exchange program between the two schools. A selection of images can be seen here and via our Instagram feed @laketuggeranongcollege.
The college was recently showcased by ACTSmart Schools as an exemplar in sustainable practices such as energy saving, water saving, recycling and connecting with the community on environmentally sustainable projects.
Some 30 students and teachers came to the college as part of an Eco Bus Tour to be shown our agriculture plot, chicken coops (made by LTC Technology staff), recycling, solar panels, frog pond, water bladders, water tanks, and LED lights throughout the college which save us energy, water and resources.
It was a successful tour and many teachers and students were very excited about what we do and wanted to start something similar at their schools. Four of our students attended the tour: Lyly Taylor, Emma Mcintosh, Jesse Challen, and Rachael O’Brien along with our teacher Dudley Hall. Science teacher, Nikey Mylordi and Business Manager, Margaret Price, showcased our college.
Well done LTC!

“What helps you feel positive?” was the topic for the Mental Wellbeing Market Day on 17 October.
While the rainy weather meant we had to run the market day in the student common area, there were a lot of positives to celebrate. Darlene and her classes presented a wide array of stalls selling art, food, beauty products, second hand clothes and more. Students raised money for charities such as Barnados, Relay for Life, and the college’s ramp project. The ramp will be built on the stairs next to Pavilion 5 so people in wheelchairs can have easy access to the lakeside.
There was a real buzz as students and staff browsed the stalls, played table tennis and talked to community organisations like headspace, the Junction and Lanyon Youth Centre.
We thank the Mental Health Community Coalition of ACT for grant money that seeded this market day.

Lake Tuggeranong College recently entered into the ACT Legal Oratory Mock Trial Competition. Competing against other colleges and private high schools, LTC effectively competed in its first attempt at the competition for a number of years.
The team was composed of Annalyse B, Andrew T, Ana S, Max F, Jackson D and Max C. Despite some tough challenges, the team was able to explore legal principles and argue the merits of cases in both civil and criminal cases. It is anticipated LTC will enter this valuable competition again in 2017.
Lake Tuggeranong College was privileged recently to host former ACT Chief Minister (2001-2011) and former Administrator of the Australian Indian Ocean Territories, Mr. Jon Stanhope.
Through an existing friendship with one of our current students who had been stationed at Christmas Island, Mr. Stanhope came to LTC to teach about human rights and the introduction of the Human Rights Act into the Australian Capital Territory. Mr. Stanhope took various challenging questions from students across both year groups.
We thank Mr. Stanhope for his generosity to spend some time at our college.
