A hot welcome to our College website! It is easy to say 'welcome,' but we genuinely mean it. Thank you for exploring our website. I hope it gives you an insight into what we offer.
We believe in building community, and we would love to partner with you in your child's education. We know from research that learning outcomes are optimized when parents and carers are actively involved in their child's education. We communicate regularly with our families and hold educational parent seminars throughout the year, plus many other events – you will be busy!
We believe in the importance of educational research here at TCC. Our teachers are taught the data-proven strategies and skills that have the most significant impact on student learning. We believe that teachers are learners, too, so we make sure they have the training they need to be effective. We have a teacher mentor program where experienced teachers work with colleagues in the classroom, providing feedback to grow continually. We are blessed with a very committed, talented, generous, well-qualified, and hard-working staff. They all have a genuine heart for working with young people.
We believe that Biblical values, which most people see as traditional values, are suitable for children and give them a solid foundation for adulthood. Our College values are compassion, humility, respect, integrity, self-control, and trustworthiness. The first letter of each value makes the name CHRIST, who is the cornerstone of our College. We expect our students to not only subscribe to these values but also grow in them.
We believe our students have a fantastic experience at TCC; our parents keep telling us! We believe in developing and empowering young people who will impact their world and make a difference for Jesus. We have sent out doctors, farmers, nurses, teachers, mechanics, retail assistants, marine biologists, professional sportsmen and women, real estate agents, dieticians, engineers, and lawyers.
