From the Principal

Mrs Emily Goforth

Welcome back!

It is truly one of the highlights of my year to see our campus burst back to life with the return of our students. The energy and excitement that fill the air remind us of the vibrant spirit that defines Tranby.

I want to take a moment to reflect on the wonderful occasion of the Year 12 Ball, which marked the beginning of our Year 12 students’ final journey at the College. Held on 24 January at Frasers at Kings Park, the evening was a stunning celebration of our just how far our students have come.. Thank you to all the staff members who attended and supported our students, making the event truly memorable.

Tonight, we have the Twilight Picnic following the Meet the Mentor and Classroom Teacher meetings. These gatherings provide invaluable opportunities for us to connect, share insights, and establish the routines and expectations for the year ahead. Our dedicated mentors and teachers serve as invaluable guides, offering support and guidance to address any concerns, queries, or feedback you may have regarding your child or children.

It is a great event to attend if you are able!

As we dive into the new Term, we look forward to the upcoming Swimming Carnivals and the exciting opportunities they bring for our students to showcase their talents and camaraderie.

The Term has certainly kicked off with a bang, and we are eager to see what the rest of the year has in store for us.

I also want to take this opportunity to remind parents and guardians about the importance of familiarising themselves with the policies and procedures at the College, particularly the Student, Parent, and Child-Safe Codes of Conduct. These documents outline the expectations and guidelines that help ensure a safe, supportive, and inclusive environment for all members of our Community. If you have not already done so, I encourage you to visit the Tranby website to access these resources – tranby.wa.edu.au/publications-policies/

Additionally, students will have the opportunity to review the Codes of Conduct with their mentors and classroom teachers in the coming weeks.

As we embark on this new academic year together, let us embrace the opportunities for growth, learning, and collaboration that lie ahead.

With your continued support and engagement, I am confident that we will make this year one of our most successful yet.

Thank you for being part of the Tranby Community, and here’s to a year filled with growth, achievement, and memorable experiences for us all!

Deputy Principal

Mr anthony britza

As we embark on the journey of a new academic year, it is with immense joy that I extend a warm welcome to both our new and returning families.

Together, we stand on the threshold of a year filled with opportunities for growth, learning, and profound experiences.

This year heralds an exciting milestone for Tranby with the introduction of our new management system, TASS.

Through TASS, students now have access to the innovative Student Cafe platform, meticulously crafted to streamline their academic journey and enrich their learning experiences.

Additionally, parents and guardians are invited to explore the Family Lounge, offering a seamless and transparent channel to stay updated on their child’s progress, access vital information, and actively engage with our vibrant school community. If you need it we have created a User Guide for you at tranby.wa.edu.au/family-lounge-guide/

We eagerly anticipate your valuable feedback as we unveil new features and enhancements.

Furthermore, I am proud to announce that our Administration Officer, Mrs Chelsea Smart is part of a select group from across Australia contributing to the development of an app-based version of TASS.

We eagerly anticipate its implementation here at Tranby College, further revolutionising our educational ecosystem.

A gentle reminder that all communication with the College will now be facilitated through email, ensuring efficient and timely correspondence.

As we embrace these enhancements, we express our gratitude to the entire Tranby Community for your ongoing support and commitment to our shared vision of academic excellence and holistic development.

Together, let us make this academic year one filled with success, growth, and memorable experiences.

Thank you for being part of our Tranby family.

Welcome back everyone to 2024! We’re thrilled to see everyone return for another exciting year ahead.

Firstly, a huge round of applause to our exceptional Class of 2023 students, who have achieved an ATAR over 90! Your hard work and dedication have paid off, and we’re incredibly proud of your achievements. Keep up the fantastic work at University!

Before diving into the academic year, our current Year 12 students had the chance to celebrate in style at the 2024 Year 12 Ball. It was an evening of elegance and joy as students dressed up and enjoyed a wonderful evening together. It was a fantastic way to kick off the year and create lasting memories with friends.

As we continue on this journey together, let’s carry the excitement and positivity from these events into our everyday lives. Whether it’s in the classroom, on the sports field, or within our Community, let’s strive to make this year one to remember.

Let’s make 2024 a year filled with success, growth, and unforgettable moments.

Head of Junior School

Mrs CHERYL TAYLOR

Welcome back!

It gives me great pleasure to welcome you all back for the 2024 College year.

This week, the energy in the Junior School was palpable as students excitedly waited outside their classrooms and met with their classmates. We welcomed several new families into the Tranby Community and we hope that all our new students have enjoyed their first few days.

We also welcomed our very youngest students in kindergarten. Our Kindy students will be transitioning to full days over the next few weeks and it is wonderful to see their beaming faces as they arrive in their school uniforms, ready to start the Tranby day.

This year, the Junior School will be preparing for our biennial Performing Arts Production led by Ms Brooke Steele.

The production this year is Disney’s My Son Pinocchio JR.

Students in Years 5 & 6 have already met with Ms Steele and she has shared with them information regarding auditions.

In addition to our Junior School clubs and activities, the Production will form part of our co-curricular offerings this year – many students and staff will be involved after classes each week.

I hope you have had a positive start to the year, and I look forward to meeting as many families as possible in the coming weeks.

WELCOME & CONGRATULATIONS

What an inspiring start to the Term! At this week’s Welcome Assembly we reconnected with returning students, embraced the new families joining the Tranby Community and celebrated the achievements of our new alumni – the students of the Class of 2023.

Our very talented 90’s Club inductees from last year’s Year 12, received their recognition award for achieving an ATAR score over 90. This year’s Prefects were presented with their new blazers and our Class of 2024’s Leavers Jackets were on show for all. Well done to everyone!

Together we took time to think of time rushing past and how the fleeting moments are what make life special – for all students, parents, guardians and staff. So let’s embrace the journey that 2024 will take us on and make it truly remarkable!

Cadets 2024

We are thrilled to be continuing the Emergency Service Cadet Corps (ESCC) this year.

Training will be on Monday afternoons, so stay tuned for enrolment information and the official starting date in the coming weeks
