The Lakes College Community Association (TLCCA) is an integral part of our College community existing through the goodwill and commitment of parents and friends of the College. The Association plays a key role in developing quality relationships that underpin a true sense of community, as they work with other parents, students and staff to provide support in different ways for our College.
As well as raising funds for much needed resources and facilities, the TLCCA provides a way of parents connecting with each other, forming friendships and feeling a true sense of belonging to our great school.
Community members can be involved by volunteering to support or organise a fundraising activity and actively participating in monthly general meetings, contribute to a sub-committee or holding an office bearer position within the TLCCA Executive committee.
The Association believes that one of the best ways we can provide support is by being actively involved in the community. Activities the Association sponsors include annual fundraisers the Mother’s Day Stall, Walkathon and Fun Run; school programs such as sports teams and equipment, Garden Club and Library Lovers; managing the school’s Second Hand Uniform Shop; funding major projects such as playground equipment; and undertake working bees.
To bring parents together for sharing friendship and good times, the Community Association organises a number of social events each year. These include Trivia Nights, New Year Welcome Back BBQ for all school families, and our premier social event, the TLC Anniversary Dinner. Our largest fundraising event for the year is the TLC Fun Run held in August.
Membership of the TLCCA is open to all parents and guardians of students attending the College, and any other persons aged 18 years and over who are committed to the development of a supportive college community.
