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.

LTC Graphic Art and Design students have tackled corporate identity this term with a task called ‘Cows and Companies’. The title is a joke or pun referring to the fact that they “both need to be branded…” as well as relating to the enterprise that students had to conceive which was to be a dairy-based entity of their own invention.
So, if you’re lactose intolerant take a Lactofree pill and enjoy this gallery of designs showcasing logos, style guides and mock ups for ideas ranging from ice cream and cheese to cafes and gelato bars. Well done to all our rookie designers in Line 3 – great job.
Lake Tuggeranong College is proposing to run a 3-week study tour to Spain for ACT high school and college students in April 2017.
Students will have the opportunity to immerse themselves in the Spanish language and culture, and learn more about the country’s amazing history. This will be a combined study and homestay experience where students will attend a language school and stay with a Spanish host family. Students will also have the opportunity to explore some of Spain’s most exciting cultural landmarks and historical sites.
For more information about the trip please see the attached letter. Expressions of interest to participate close Friday 23 September 2016 so get in quick as places are limited!

On Thursday 1 September 2016, Laura Morgan, Lily Taylor, and Holly Wardell attended the Youth Forum on Sustainability and Technology conducted by the Commissioner for Sustainability and the Environment, Dr Kate Auty.
The forum was open to youth 16 – 25 years old, with other college students from ACT schools and ACT Universities in attendance. The purpose was to find out ways technology can be utilised to promote and inform the public on sustainability issues. The day was very successful and several apps were developed for consideration by the Commission.
I would like to thank the Commissioner for running such a significant event and providing opportunities for students to have a voice regarding environmental issues.
The LTC Year 12 Human Ecology class was very privileged recently in having Dr. Bill Phillips, CEO of Riversmart, come and talk about the human impacts of Lake Burley Griffin.
Students learned first-hand how willow trees, storm-water drains, construction sites, carp and livestock etc have a negative impact on the ecology of the lake. The best thing about the visit was also learning the solutions we have in solving such environmental issues.
I wish to thanks all the students of my Human Ecology class in being such wonderful ambassadors of LTC and making our visitor feel welcomed. We all learned lots on the day!
