Terrace Ladies Group

Years 5 – 9 Mothers' High Tea

The Years 5-9 Mothers' High Tea held in the beautiful Marquee at Victoria Park last Friday was a wonderful morning celebrated by a record 345 ladies. The event was a perfect opportunity to make new friendships and for the new Terrace mums to feel a part of the Terrace Family right from the start. It is the excitement and enthusiasm of the younger grades that reinforces the caring community we value so much. 

Mrs Mary Seawright, the mother of our College Captain Oliver Seawright, was our guest speaker. Mary spoke about her deep seated and long history with Terrace dating back two generations to the homeland of blessed Edmund Rice in Ireland. Mary captivated us with her tips in embracing the College for all it has to offer each and every member of the family. We were entertained with windows into their journey thus far. 

Thank you to the businesses who contributed to our fabulous prize pool: The Malouf Family, Hellenika, Gambaros, Lipstick Time, Oatley Wines, Susan Driver Jewellery, La Cache A Vin, Clayfield Hairlines, Jo Malone, Terry White Chemist and Rallings printing. Victoria Park were very generous to us once again. With so many functions being organised at this venue for Terrace, it almost feels like an extension to our campus. They certainly make us feel that way when we are there. Finally, a special thank you to Mrs Renee Pfaender and her team of ladies for all their efforts in bringing the fabulous morning together: Mrs Elizabeth Sheehan, Mrs Kelly Drew, Mrs Anna Stiles, Mrs Suzie O’Shea-Slack, Mrs Rebecca Murphy, Mrs Libby Sheehan, Mrs Marni D'Allura, Mrs Tammy Butterfield and Mrs Donna Asnicar. Of course, there were more ladies along the way, to whom we are also grateful for their help. 

Tennyson Canteen

Please keep an eye out for the volunteer list in the Round 3 Football email and, if possible, offer an hour of your time. Often, we are out at Tennyson prior to our sons’ games and could use this spare time to lend a hand to help in the smooth running of both the canteen and BBQ. This Saturday, it would be good to see Years 9 and 10 parents fill those volunteering spots. Our boys love their food after playing so any home baking would also be greatly appreciated.
