Mothers’ High Tea

The Mothers’ High Tea for Years 5-9 was held last Friday 28 April in the beautiful Marquee at Victoria Park. The morning was a great success with lots of new friendships created over the delicious high-tea. The catchphrase “friendraising” was mentioned by our MC, Marilyn Trad, and it was taken up with enthusiasm and used throughout the day.

Thank you to Sallyanne Atkinson, our guest speaker. Sallyanne was wonderful and funny and had us all totally enthralled. We sold all of her 70 books, No Job for a Woman, and could have sold more.

Congratulations to our lucky door prize winners and thank you to the generous businesses who contributed towards the prize pool: Halcyon House, Camargue, Blow Hair and Beauty, Studio Kirby and Victoria Park Pro Shop. A special thank you to Victoria Park for taking such good care of us and for their generous offers, including the $300 voucher to the pro-shop that we offered as a lucky door prize.

Some photos from the lovely morning have been uploaded to the Terrace Image Libary. This can be found on the Parent Lounge, under “School Links” then click on your relevant year level/s.

A final thank you to the ladies who were on the organising committee: Leisa Low (TLG Vice President), Anna Stiles, Elizabeth Sheehan, Renee Pfaender, Kellie Drew and Cathy Nash. Your enthusiasm and joy are greatly appreciated.

Terrace Cookbook Special

The “High Tea Cookbook Special” will continue until Mothers’ Day. For $50 you will receive the Terrace Cookbook ($5 saving), a free GT Tea Towel and the Red and Black canvas carry bag.
