School Council Elections 2024

Tarneit Senior College School Council elections will be held early this term. I encourage all parents and carers, students and staff to carefully consider how they can best contribute to and support the continued growth and development of Tarneit Senior College and in doing so to consider the possibility of nominating for election to the Tarneit Senior College Council. The College Council is a legally formed body with the power to set key directions of Tarneit Senior College within centrally provided guidelines and frameworks. In doing this, College Council is able to directly influence the quality of education to school provides to its students.

I would like to thank the retiring members of Council for their support of the College over their tenure and the energy and effort they put in to the improvement of Tarneit Senior College and in securing the best educational outcomes for our students. Councillors who remain as Department of Education employees, as students or as parents of the College are welcome to stand for re-election.

Thank you to our retiring parent members: Mr Sanam Makadia and Ms Angela Smith. I would like to acknowledge and thank Anegla for her term as Vice President. Thank you also to our retiring student member Rija Saeed and to the school employee representatives for their contribution to Council: Mrs Carly Marriner.

There is a further one (1) parent vacancy and one (1) vacancy for a student representative for a one-year term, March 2024-February 2025. We seek interest for a total of (2) parents for College council membership.

All parents/guardians of students at Tarneit Senior College are eligible to vote for parent members. All students are eligible to vote for student members.

Tarneit Senior College students in 2023 have achieved outstanding results and a high success rate in completing their VCE and VCAL studies.

Some of the highlights include:

As a school, we are very proud of the work of our Year 12 cohort who have worked hard over the past 3 years at Tarneit Senior College to achieve, not only this year but over the course of the educational journey for these students, including the years affected by COVID.

In addition, congratulations to all our Year 12 VCAL students for completing all course requirements and receiving offers to complete diplomas, traineeships, and apprenticeships. I also want to acknowledge our graduates for the Victorian Pathways Certificate who had a 100% completion rate!
