Tumut High School Term 4 Highlights

Issued 20 December 2022

Respect, Responsibility, Safety

Principal's Message from the 2022 Award Presentation Evening

I would like to thank the parents, relatives and carers who are here tonight to celebrate the achievements of our students. Tonight, there will be a range of awards and acknowledgements received by our students, we congratulate each and every one of them for what they have accomplished this year.

2022 has been another challenging year as we continued to cope with the ongoing impacts of the pandemic. The unpredictable nature of schooling created by COVID-19 combined with state wide teacher shortages, complicated our ability to find exactly what will be the new normal. Teachers have continued to effectively adapt to changing conditions as best as possible, however, we are aware not all students have been as successful, in coping with traditional schooling since their return from lockdowns.

That said, there has been a gradual return to some activities that were put on hold as we dealt with the implications of the pandemic.

It is great our whole year wellbeing excursions have returned and have been very well received. Our Year 12 trip to North Queensland, the Year 7 trip to Jindabyne, the Year 8 and Year 9 trips to Tathra along with Year 10 to Gerringong, have all provided opportunities for every student to challenge themselves in an environment away from their normal support network.

This term I was fortunate to attend both the Year 8 and Year 10 overnight excursions and I was particularly impressed with how well our students maximised the opportunities available on these excursions.

Our students are happy to see some sporting events have gradually returned as well, although there have been far less opportunities than those available pre pandemic. We have also noticed the return of some of the more traditionally KLA based excursions to destinations like Sydney, Canberra Wagga etc.

Our links with our community are gradually returning and as each month goes by, we are increasingly returning to a more predictable school environment.

On a positive note there is a real sense that perhaps 2023 will be the Year of Predictability rather than another year of the Pandemic giving us unpredictability.

So, 2023 will be a significant year for all and hopefully all the opportunities we have known, will again become available to our students.

THS has long provided the opportunities for so many students in our town to become informed, active and responsible community members whether they remain in Tumut, returned to Tumut or live outside of Tumut.

THS has for so long provided the learning platform for hundreds of students to take up local apprenticeships and traineeships in business, for hundreds  of students to take up university placements leading them into successful careers as parliamentarians, as GP’s , specialist doctors, journalists,  leaders in School and University Education both in Australia and overseas.

Our local High School has helped provide CEO’s for the Australian Indigenous Governance Institute. It has helped provide Mayors including the areas first Indigenous Mayor for our local Council’. It has helped develop high achieving creative arts performers and representative sportspeople.

The list is virtually endless and it’s important we remind ourselves of how significant our local public school is in providing students with these opportunities in an inclusive manner that benefit all students.

It is so important we remind ourselves of how significant Public Schooling is, particularly at a time when research is showing an ever increasing gap between the academic achievements of those from lower socio economic backgrounds compared to those from higher ones.

Tumut High School continues, to this day, to help produce amazing citizens. Our most recent Year 12 students are testimony to this. A cohort of young adults who have conducted themselves as a collective group as respectful and responsible people. A group of students who have achieved both in and outside of the classroom.

I am at the conclusion of my career in education. I have worked in public schools for over 35 years. I have worked in this school for nearly 9 years and I feel I cannot leave without highlighting the need for this community to fight for its local public high school.

Public Schools in NSW are increasingly faced with greater scrutiny and proportionally less funding than schools in the private system. For the benefit of the students in the hall tonight, and for the many that follow, we need to defend the integrity of this school and the Public System it is part of.

The students here tonight, symbolise what can be achieved when opportunities are provided and taken up. If we are to live in a better world it can only happen if every student in our community has access to opportunities that make them better people.

In Tumut, we have a good Public High School that is accessible to all, a school that let’s all our voices be heard when the reputation of our school and our students are challenged. Our students, our staff and our community deserve to have this access.

Regards, Mr Don Dixon, Principal

Mr Dixon is farewelled by THS Students at 2022 Award Presentation Evening

This year we say goodbye to our loved Principal of 8 years Mr Dixon.

Please join me on stage while I rant about how great you have been.

It is a great loss for Tumut High to see you leave. Your warm greetings and wise speeches were truly indicative of your passion and devotion to this school and the greater public education system.

While we may have at times taken your leadership for granted, a hole will certainly be left in your wake, as you Sir, were a special Principal that will not soon be forgotten. Your undying pursuit to mingle with all years became evident when you ambushed us on our first Year 7 ALP day with your beloved optical illusion YouTube montages.

But this is what made you a unique Principal. In a position in which it can be very easy to lean back in the comfy office chair, you pursued student interaction to ensure you were doing everything you could to keep students happy and involved.

The school and the individuals within our school would not have achieved many of the great things they have without you as a driving engine at the front of Tumut High.

Student PBL values of Respect, Responsibility and Safety were always something that you successfully instilled in students, at times without them even realizing. Your G’days will be missed in the hallways, your occasional presence on the footy field, basketball court and volleyball court will be missed and your incessant involvement in the learning of students will be dearly missed.

On behalf of the school and the student body, thank you for your service and enjoy a well earned rest.

By 2023 School Captain Elect, Edward Dodds

THS SRC Report as presented at 2022 Award Presentation Evening

Good evening parents, guests, teachers and students and welcome to tonight's Awards Presentation.

It gives me great pleasure to report on the outstanding achievements of the Student Representative Council of Tumut High School this year.

Despite a number of great plans having been thwarted by COVID-19 restrictions early in the year, our 2022 Year 12 captains were determined to make the best of their final service to Tumut High School. They forged ahead in their fundraising efforts for a number of worthy causes.

First term saw the courageous act of Amitiel Booby in Year 7 participate in the Worlds Greatest Shave supported by the SRC to raise money for the Leukemia Foundation. We held a sausage sizzle and sold spiders to aid our local Riding for The Disabled. We are proud to say we raised over $500 for these charities. Thank you, Tumut High School, for your generosity. 

In Term 2, we hosted the most successful Biggest Morning Tea yet with leaders Keely and Abbey at the helm of a crew of junior SRC members whose generous contributions of delicious slices and cakes were sold at recess and lunch, raising another $500 for the Cancer Council.

RUOK Day was recognised through the collaborative efforts of our wonderful Learning Support Officers. Gemma and Jenna, and SRC with free treats for teachers and students aiming to raise awareness of the necessity of asking the question: RUOK?

Our SRC was also approached by the Rotary Club in Term 2, to assist in the fundraising efforts for Ukraine by selling small packets of sunflower seeds. A lunchtime SRC meeting was spent bagging and labelling packets of seeds which all members took to sell to family and friends.

In Term 3 we acknowledged Mental Health month in October and to further recognise the devastation that has occurred in Ukraine, leaders Gemma, Keely, Abbey and Daniel along with Year 7 students, planted sunflowers seeds in front of the  Wellbeing Hub. Watch out for their bright yellow flowers any day now.

Recently in Term 4, Eddie, with the help of several Year 9 boys, organised a 3 versus 3 basketball tournament that went for 3 days, with over 80 participants, ranging from Year 7 through to 12 as well as a couple of teachers teams. In conjunction with a sports themed mufti day where everyone was encouraged to wear sports jerseys, this  contributed to the uplifting vibe of the day.

We have 20 SRC students looking forward to travelling to Sydney for a youth leadership conference early in 2023. We are also looking forward to an even busier year in 2023, continuing to lift the spirits of all members of Tumut High through both fun activities and fundraising events.

As the newly elected School Captains for Tumut High we feel honored to lead our school and we are enjoying connecting with the students from all the years.  We are inspired by the students around us to create positive changes in our school. We feel excitement building for good times in 2023.

Tumut High School P&C Association Term 4 report

The P&C would like to say farewell and wish Mr Dixon all the best in his retirement. We have appreciated all the time, support, and collaboration Mr Dixon has given to the P&C over the years. It was great to have the school Principal attend all our meetings.

Congratulations to our school canteen staff who have again received accreditation for meeting the NSW Healthy Schools Canteen Strategy. Well done to Marea, Beth and Le and thank you for providing both staff and students with a great canteen.

Some of the topics we addressed this year at our P&C meetings included:

· A change to the school uniform policy to allow girls to wear plain navy tights.

· Funding a new chilled water station near the hall for students from a canteen donation.

· Arranging for an upgrade in the canteen to include a dishwasher.

· Supporting the teacher’s shortage crisis with correspondence sent to local paper and members of parliament.

· Requesting school tours for families.

The P&C held a thank you morning tea for all staff members on Monday, 19 December to personally thank them for their dedication to teaching and supporting our students over the past year. Our canteen ladies catered for this event and the food was delicious as always. Thank you to our canteen ladies - Marea, Beth and Le who do a fantastic job running the canteen with healthy food available for both staff and students. It was a pleasure for me to give the canteen ladies a box of chocolates to thank them for 2022.

At the morning tea we presented each faculty with a box of chocolates as a further thank you for all their dedication and hard work. This year the staff had to deal with staff shortages, ongoing COVID-19 measures, extra work loads, on top of an already stressful and hectic role. So thank you to all the staff at Tumut High - on behalf of all parents and carers we appreciate you all and the commitment you have shown this year to our children.

I would like to thank all the Tumut High School P&C Committee members for their ideas and support through 2022. 

The next P&C meeting is also our AGM which will be on Monday the 20th of March 2023. Everyone is welcome to attend and listen and also most welcome to contribute to discussions and offer suggestions or ideas for the betterment of our students and staff at Tumut High.

Only one or 2 meetings are held each term. Our meetings give parents/carers a platform to ask questions, raise issues and be well informed of what is happening in our school.

Next year we are hoping to arrange guest speakers so we can understand more about our school and the programs that are being offered, Please come along and be a part of our school community. Contact the school office and leave a message if you would like to speak with any of our committee members about what we do.

Have a wonderful Christmas everyone and a happy new year.

Remembrance Day at Tumut High

Tumut High School paused to commemorate Remembrance Day on Friday, 11 November.

The school came together to reflect as Vice Captain Elect Clare Bottero read Commemoration, Vice Captain Elect Noah Parker read In Flanders Fields and Year 7 student Ivy Crawford addressed the school with a biography of local ex-serviceman, Lieutenant Colonel Allan Humphrey Scott.

Student volunteers asked the students and staff to remember a number of local servicemen who fought in armed conflicts.

Hayley Wolfe and Mr Britt performed a haunting rendition of Hallelujah before the school leaders, Jess Wysman and Noah Parker laid a wreath on the stage.

Students read The Ode before the Last Post, then the school observed a one minute silence as the flag was raised from half mast during Reveille.

Students continued to show what respect looked like by being reflective on this significant day in our history.

Year 10 students had the best time in really good weather for their end of year excursion to the coast.
