Message from the Board of Trustees

posted Sep 28, 2017, 6:35 PM by Reception @TMCS

On behalf of the Board of Trustees I would like to acknowledge the highly professional way that our Management team and staff managed the lock down event on Tuesday.

Firstly, they ensured all children were safe and accounted for, and then they focused on keeping the children calm and engaged throughout. Secondly our community were kept well informed with regular communication and updates being sent directly to parents, through multiple channels. Keeping such a positive and calm face throughout the event, speaks a lot to the professionalism of our staff, and helped to minimise the impact on our children. It is also pleasing to see the high awareness and understanding of the school’s Lock Down procedures, which were implemented quickly and efficiently. In summary, we are certainly fortunate to have such a great team at our school, that performed extremely well in a challenging situation.
