THE year 12 class of 2019 provided a wonderful mix of achievement, with a recognition on the importance of thanking the many people who assisted them on their journey throughout school.
Students were successful in academic, sporting and cultural pursuits. They combined this with a desire to recognise people and groups who have assisted them during their years at school.
As well as classroom achievement, students were also successful in areas of their passion including film and politics.
Year 12 'Big Picture' student Zac Shaw was selected as a finalist in the MyState Film Festival for the short film he created 'Up, Up and Away'.
The festival offers a unique opportunity for students to experience and learn about the world of film-making and is often an immensely rewarding, exciting and fun journey.
Year 12 student, Katerina Nicolopoulos was nominated by Tomaree High School to attend the NSW Schools Constitutional Convention at NSW Parliament.
As a result, Katerina was selected to participate in the National Schools Constitutional Convention in Canberra (NSCC). Katerina was one of only 30 students selected in NSW to attend the National Convention.
Tomaree High Student Representative Council (SRC) hosted a 'Thank You Breakfast' to the service and volunteer organisations in the Tomaree region. The SRC is made up of predominately Year 12 students. The SRC initiative was arranged to thank all the people in our region who provide fantastic services and support to Port Stephens residents.

Tomaree High places a strong emphasis on strong community links and would like to thank each organisation for taking the time to again strengthen these very important relationships. Students of 2019 can be very proud of the way they represented the school and themselves.
