CONGRATULATIONS to Year 12 special award recipients

Introducing the Tumut High School 2023 Senior Student Leadership Team

Principal's Message from the Year 12 Final Assembly

I would like to start by acknowledging the traditional custodians of this land on which we meet, the Wiradjuri and Wolgalu people. We come together to again celebrate a significant milestone.

I would like to pay my respect to our Elders both past, present and emerging. On a day when we honour the role of education, let’s remember that for many thousands of years Aboriginal people used the lands we work and  live on   to educate younger people in their community. We sit here on what always was and always will be Aboriginal land.

So why is today so significant and who is it significant for? Today is the last formal school day for Yr 12 2022. It marks the end of 13 years of formal education. We now have the opportunity for us all to reflect on the importance of this milestone and use it to celebrate a big moment in these students’ lives.

For our school system, today represents the opportunity to showcase the quality of people it has produced after 13 years of schooling. Today we give time to reflect and allow the rest of the school to witness what an amazing group of people these students have become. For the remaining students in the MPC you get the opportunity to see what the ultimate goal of schooling is.

In many ways the real goal of education and of school, put simply, is becoming a good person and a more capable person than when you started this journey. Year 12 can walk out of the gates today knowing you have now become living examples of what good and capable people look like.

For all your teachers, whether they be from Year 12 or Year 9 or Year 7 or even in  Year 4 or Kindergarten, this is the moment they all  can look back on and feel a sense of fulfilment in knowing they have made a contribution to who you have become today. Your teachers have all been amazing and even though you will remember some more than others, schools will always be places that work most effectively when staff, both teaching and non-teaching work together. On a significant day like today we all get an opportunity to feel good about who you all have become.

For your parents and carers, today will be significant for many reasons. No one person or family is the same but for each family and for each carer, today will be their opportunity to reflect on the ups and downs, the sacrifices, the tears, the laughter. And amongst all of this it will ultimately be a time they can walk away with a real sense of what you have achieved and of who you have become.

For Year 12. Take a moment to celebrate what you've achieved and appreciate the memories that this part of your education has given you. Most of you have been here since Year 7, some of you only here from Year 11. However all of you have had opportunities to engage in learning both in and out of the classroom. Enjoy reflecting on these many and varied experiences and as you do comprehend that these have been provided by your local comprehensive Public High School.

When reflecting with some of you early this week it was heartening to hear of both the quantity and quality of opportunities offered and taken up since Year 7 and through to Year 12. Each year, apart for Year 11 you all had the opportunity to attend numerous whole year group excursions including trips to Laurel Hill, Tathra, Yarrangobilly Caves, Jamberoo/Kiama, North Qld, Canberra. You were able to participate in ski trips to Selwyn, week long walks in the Snowy Mountains, cattle parading in Canberra and camping at Goobarragandra. Academically you were given opportunities with the Tournament of Minds, Debating, enrolment in Aurora, Chess and participation in subject related excursion in History, Geography, Art, Music, reset days in English. Your participation in Work Experience, Transition Week, TAFE, ABW, Careers Days Uni Expos, Early Entries and the trip to UOW all part of the opportunities provided for you in determining your career pathways.

Of course, sporting opportunities were endless in Soccer, Athletics, swimming, Rugby League and union, Oz Tag and Touch, Basketball, Dance, netball and cross country.

So many of you achieved both individually and in team results in sporting and academic fields well beyond the expectations of a country regional high school. So many of you traveling to Sydney, other parts of the Riverina and NSW to compete, I am sure there have been some who have even gone interstate.

Of course there were so many other opportunities that many of you took up. Culturally our Aboriginal girls have attended Burrabinya since Year 10, our Aboriginal boys volunteering to be a part of Clontarf and both groups benefiting from amazing mentors. In leadership your Yr have been a big part of the SRC since Year 7 and your roles in the Batyr Group reinforced that leadership is about what you do, not what title you hold. The captains within your group have been self-motivated, taken up the opportunity to be active and effective and have represented the school and year group with confidence and insight.

The list goes on and I know I have only scratched at the surface with all of this happening in a time where 3 of your school years have been significantly impacted by COVID. However I hope what I have said highlights one of the key reasons you are where you are as a collective group. You are a group who have collectively taken up the opportunities presented to you. You are a group who have used opportunity to overcome adversity and with this have developed a resilience that few year groups have matched before you.

Finally, life has all those twists and turns which your year group have already experienced at the more extreme level. You are a credit to the school, your families and most importantly yourselves in how you have handled your schooling. We maybe yet to see the full long term impacts on how the COVID epidemic impacts on the way our societies evolve but you leave today as good people who have the resilience and capacity to deal with what lays ahead.

Regards, Mr Don Dixon, Principal

Year 12 Captain's Final Assembly speech

Thank you to our Senior Student Leadership Team for 2022 consisting of Gemma Delany, Daniel Castle, Keely Wickman and Abbey Taylor who have been so positively active within our school and our community.

Final words from our Captains 2022


Being a student at THS has definitely been a positive experience throughout my life.

Being a leader has definitely made me a more responsible person. Being responsible has allowed me to take pride in my actions and given me the opportunity to be in a leadership role within the school, which I have loved. Through being a leader it has also helped me embrace and follow the school values of respect, responsibility and safety. 

I have received many opportunities throughout my time in high school, including many sporting events, as well as academic ones. I strongly encourage everyone to take up any opportunity they receive here at Tumut High School, as you will definitely enjoy them. 

I have significantly grown through my experiences at Tumut High School. I have grown and gained more confidence throughout being in the SRC for most years and becoming school captain. These have definitely allowed me to increase my speaking skills, especially in front of audiences as well as being able to communicate better with other individuals. 

I have overcome many challenges faced whilst at Tumut High School. The challenge of school work, with getting class assignments completed and handed in on time to a high standard and the challenge of understanding topics and having a higher responsibility as well as individual challenges such as the challenge about not caring what people think of me. 

The school has encouraged me to be a better person both academically and personally. It has been a safe place for me all of my high school years and I have thoroughly enjoyed coming to school every day. 


As my schooling life comes to a close and my time at Tumut High School finishes I can look back at my life at Tumut High School with a lot of fondness.

Life at Tumut High provided a sense of  belonging and routine and the memories and friendships created during this will last a lifetime.  As a captain in Year 12 I have had the pleasure of being a leader for Tumut High and I hope that I have been able to assist in creating a schooling environment that is full of fun and education, one that I experienced myself.

As I leave I hope to leave some advice to students of Tumut High  and any future students. Our school is full of opportunities, so take as many as possible. Enjoy your time at Tumut High School and thank you to everyone that has been a part of my school experience, I won't forget it. 


Wow! Time has flown so fast, I can't believe I am already at the end of my schooling years.

My time here at Tumut High has been one I will cherish, with lots of laughs, learning and fun memories to remember. From participating in debating, CAPA, Tournament of Minds, State swimming, SRC and many more opportunities offered at this school, I have grown in self confidence and made long lasting friendships.

This year I was lucky to have the opportunity to represent the school as a captain which has been a role I have enjoyed taking on. I have found leadership qualities within myself and how to work effectively and efficiently as a team to organize events and support others whilst following our school's core values of respect, responsibility and safety.

Thank you to all the staff who have taught me important lessons and motivated me to achieve great results in all areas of my life and good luck to all my peers!


Tumut High School has provided me with so many opportunities that I will be forever grateful for and will use the skills I have developed over my schooling here in my everyday life out of school.

Over the past 6 years of going to school at Tumut High I have continued to grow into an independent and hard worker, allowing me to succeed in both my studies and in being more involved in the school environment.

Being a leader has shown me the benefits and rewarding nature of being a role model in my school community and has provided me with the opportunity to make Tumut High a better place for everyone. I have developed relationships with people across all year groups through this role and hope that they have felt supported and encouraged by myself and the other leaders to pursue leadership opportunities in the future.

I have grown in confidence and can work well in a team environment thanks to the SRC and Tumut High. I couldn't thank the staff here enough for support they have provided me, preparing me for the next stage of my life. Thank you.

Visit: www.tumuthighcareers.com

Students from Years 10-12 learnt about future training and career pathways available at the Canberra Careers Expo.

Forestry Immersion Excursion

Students from Years 10, 11 and 12 from THS and other schools got to enjoy the opportunity to participate in the Forestry Immersion Excursion in which students visited the tree nursery, the forest itself and watched clear fall harvesting, and AKD mill.

Students who showed interest in the industry were given the opportunity to participate in a 3-day course at Tumut TAFE. Eight students from Tumut High attended the course. The course covered several modules under a certificate in Forestry Operations. The modules were:- Follow WHS Policies, Follow Environmental Care Procedures, Follow Cultural Heritage Requirements and Comply with Soil and Water Protection.

During the course we spent time looking at different types of drainage systems as well as cultural, natural, and historical heritage sites. We also spent time out in the forests putting our learnt skills into action.

It was lots of fun and very interesting. At the end of the course students were shown basic maintenance of a chainsaw and had the opportunbity to use simulators for machines in the field.

A big thank you to Stacey Suidgeest from Regional Industry Education Partnerships (RIEP) for coordinating the whole program, Adam Farquahsan from TAFE NSW for giving us this opportunity as well as Mrs Stroud for organising it.

By Jack Fisher, Year 10

Student stories and Student successes

Year 7 Maths

Ms Noordermeer’s Year 7 Mathematics class learned about poffertjes and pronumerals in the last week of term and enjoyed this tasty treat cooked by their teacher.

In a hypothetical scenario, 7NMM decided to run a local market stall selling poffertjes. Putting together their business plan, the class used pronumerals to replace unknown values.

In the context of the business planning students learned that variables can take on a range of possible values and that the number of customers or bowls sold is an example of a variable.

Students helped with serving and some students had a turn at cooking them. The general consensus was that the poffertjes were delicious. Next term the class will be completing the hypothetical business plan as part of their learning in the topic of equations. 

Students have been highly engaged and attentive in the classroom with this hands on learning.

Year 7 Poffertjes and Pronumerals

Year 7 MTVA - Mandatory Technology Visual Arts

Year 8 ALP - Alternative Learning Program

"Living Books" at Tumut High was embraced by our students in Year 8 ALP working on this term's Intercultural Understanding unit with a local First Nations focus.

Special thanks to our guest speakers Aunty Sue Bulger, Uncle Pat Connolly, Aunty Winnie Bulger, Trish Espie-Whitburn and Jess Bulger.

Students were engaged through story telling, activities and (sometimes) challenging discussions. It was an amazing experience for our students who now have a greater respect for our local First Nations culture.

Living books

Yr 8 ALP - Student Feedback

From Ameliah, Riley and Heath:

"Challenges are opportunities because they are good at widening your possibilities and options. They give you opportunities to prove yourself, show that you are good at working through challenges and you are not known to just give up when its hard. Challenges are good. They open your mind to more things."

From Matt and Elizabeth:

"Often worthwhile things are hard and don't come easy. Getting into an esteemed university requires lot's of effort and study, but the hard work pays off. Challenges are opportunities to develop a new skill, try something new or learn something new you never knew before. Even though it may be hard, it could be worth it. Through challenges, you always learn something, whether it's good or bad. Challenges are opportunities to learn, grow and develop."

Year 8 Visual Arts students engaging in the printmaking unit.

Great to see the love of English being fostered at Tumut High. Students in Years 7-10 participated in Slam Poetry workshops learning creative techniques with Student Mentor Maddy.

Year 9 Outdoor Education - learning bush survival skills

Look at the fun time our Year 9 PE classes had participating in a huge fitness circuit in the hall.

Year 10 iSTEM

Year 10 students have been enjoying working with lego in their iSTEM unit.

Students have to manufacture a lego plywood vehicle to climb a 30degree slope and complete a speed test.

Students proved you are never too old for Lego!

During their lessons with Mr Crain they also participated in the iSTEM Lego Car Design Challenge.

Lot's of fun learning from start to finish with these activities.

Year 10 iSTEM

Year 10 Geography mandatory fieldwork - learning in the great outdoors.

Yr 10 CREW

This term Year 10 students attended Life Skills Workshops hosted by COMPACT. It was part of the CREW program - Confident Ready and Engaged for Work. Students participated in a variety of sessions about budgeting and saving, buying a car and maintenance, avoiding debt, workplace rights and responsibilities, self care and work life balance. Thank you to COMPACT, Safework NSW, Headspace and Customer Service NSW for presenting so many useful tips and hints our students can use in the future.

A visit to University of Sydney

A message from Year 12 student Heidi Schorn about a recent experience she gained at the University of Sydney.

"There are so many awesome opportunities available for our students. Recently I attended the Open Day Residential Program at the University of Sydney. I was invited to attend the expenses-paid trip through the University of Sydney’s partnership with the Harding Miller Education Foundation, a scholarship that I received in Year 9 that has been providing me with educational support to assist me with my studies.

The University of Sydney offered Year 12 high school students from regional NSW on-campus experiences that were led by university students to experience what life at the university could be like in the future. We were given tours of the various accommodation options at the university, support with our early entry applications for the University of Sydney and access to the University of Sydney's Open Day.

The program gave me an insight into the options that I can consider after Year 12. I explored how my interested degree can be structured through their shared pool of majors and minors.

This is an experience that is not worth missing out on as there is so much information that you can learn about the options of life after high school."

Mr Dodds shared some useful insights into career opportunities in Horticulture. He explained that industries like apples at Batlow are going through a technological transformation which will includes getting the orchards ready for greater mechanisation and even robotics.

Students spent some time in the THS orchard, learning some tips and tricks for successful tree training to encourage increased production of fruit. Each student was presented with a copy of the NSW DPI Orchard Pest and Disease Guide produced annually by Mr Dodds and his colleagues.

Orchard work at THS

Debating Victory at THS

Congratulations to our Year 10 debating team with Jemma Wickman, Ashley Watling, Allie Piper and Byron Crawford claiming a victory against Coolamon Central School arguing the topic of 'That science should be compulsory throughout high school'.

Tumut High were the affirmative. The team made a number of really important points about science being the subject of the future, which will equip a new generation with the skills and knowledge to hopefully help solving issues like climate change and global warming.

The team members each spoke impressively and made strong arguments. Both the adjudicator and THS Team Coach Mr V, were impressed with the team taking on board new skills to strengthen their debating all round. Well done team.

Community engagement at St.Vincents De Paul - Year 9 students volunteer each week
