School Reports

Apologies for the teething troubles with some of the reports sent this week - we are new to this online system - there are a few creases to be ironed out! The most significant issues sat with some of the Year 7-9 students where the PaCT scores for Reading and Writing omitted the 2020 result. This has now been rectified, you should have received a supplementary copy of the correct version. 

All reports have been sent out by email, this week. If you haven't received your child's report or are having problems opening the report, please contact the School Office on (03) 415 8036 or email

Britney Leaves TCAS

Today brings one of our gold star teacher aides a new beginning. Britney Brown is leaving us after 18 months of working here, and many years of learning here! 

Britney is pursuing her goal of becoming a degree qualified ECE Teacher with a new role at Kai Kids. Britney has been working on tertiary level ECE Teacher papers since she was a student at The Catlins Area School. She is now able to realise her dream, committing to the completion of her training whilst learning on the job.

Thank you for everything you do Britney! We will all miss you, but we're also excited about your new opportunity.
