TAP's On! demonstrates how agriculture and community engagement is integrated into our curriculum through different interactive classroom and off-campus activities. Our ‘STEP UP’ volunteer expo will be a highlight featuring SES, Ambulance Victoria, CFA and Life Saving Victoria with interactive, hands on workshops promoting volunteerism in our region.
Experts or mentors are invited to assist the presenting students from Years five to ten in their peer-led workshops for our expo. Students will demonstrate what they have learned or will learn in the classroom, covering such diverse topics such as Tourism Maths, duck tales, keeping kids safe on farms, the Red Cross Pillowcase Project, environmental bugs, Fishcare, probability maths, lavender produce, CSI Timboon Mark II, healthy eating, forces in restored engines and machines, Let’s make a meal, farm PMP, nature based art and a Tardis journey back in time.
TAP's On! will also feature a multi-agency incident /scenario with SES, Ambulance Victoria and CFA volunteers at lunchtime between 1.00-2.00pm. Guests are invited to stay for lunch with a TSPA (Timboon School Parents’ Association) supported BBQ. Students, ex-students, parents, members of the public, local businesses, industry representatives and educators are invited to join Timboon P-12 staff, students and industry contributors to observe and celebrate some of the remarkable initiatives the TAP has enabled.
We wish to acknowledge the support of the Gall, O’Toole and Lane Foundations for their backing of the TAP in 2018/2019. TAP’s On! 2019 is proudly sponsored by Lochard Energy and Westpac Bank.
Since the TAP began in mid-2012, we have had over 400 industry personnel and community members provide either direct curriculum content to students or provide PD for teachers. I have attached an invitation which depicts our latest curriculum initiatives or you can check out our blog on the Timboon P-12 website under the TAP blog tab. http://www.timboonp12.vic.edu.au/
