The Heart of the Terrace Family - Volunteers Needed | Mrs Anna Wright
On Friday 6 October (Week 1 of Term 4) the Terrace Houses go head-to-head in the annual Inter-House Athletics Carnival at Tennyson.
It is an opportunity for our Track and Field athletes who usually compete on a Friday night to show us their incredible talent and fitness. Together, the Terrace Family will gather under the jacarandas to compete in events both fun and competitive to determine which House reigns supreme.
Some of us get a chance to go to Tennyson during the year, but we rarely see it when it is just the Terrace crowd, so the Athletics Carnival is a special opportunity that allows available parents and caregivers to contribute to the atmosphere. Our contribution in the Tuckshop, on the BBQ, by providing home-baked goods, or a contribution towards teacher lunches for the day makes the day special for everyone.
A Volunteer Sign Up email will be sent soon and will outline how and when you can help. You will also get a menu when it is finalised – I hear Monica and Anthony Katsanevas are firing up the BBQ for their famous chicken or haloumi yiros...not to be missed!
If you haven’t helped at Tennyson before, it’s easy (running your own home is much harder and much less social), just come along, introduce yourself to Kirsten Carroll (our Canteen Contessa), and before you know it, you will hear those beautiful manners as the boys buy their lunch or a post-race pick me up. You can always pop out and watch some events throughout the day as well.
Please help out if you can. Many hands make light work.
Until I see you at the Athletics Carnival, I send us all strength to get through exam block and make it to the holidays.
