Terrace Ladies Group

All are invited and welcome to attend the next TLG meeting, which will be at 9am on Monday 29 May in the Museum.

Tennyson Canteen

This Saturday, while it is a bye weekend, there are seventeen football games being held in the morning against ATC and six rugby trial matches in the afternoon against Churchie. We are not expecting as busy a day as normal, however, we may still need assistance behind the counter. You can sign up via the link that goes out with the Football notice this week. Of course, if you haven’t signed up and have a spare hour or so, please pop in and give us a hand if you see us have a busy patch. All assistance is greatly appreciated, thanks.

Year 12 Mothers’ Masses

On Tuesday morning 23 May the Year 12 Mass was held for the mothers of Treacy, Xavier, Windsor and Reidy. Thank you to Father Gerard and the Choir for the two beautiful celebrations this week and last week. It is a very busy time for our Year 12 boys, so having a moment to sit closely and reflect together was lovely. The hymns and our Edmund Rice song were a little more emotional than normal for us with the end of school for our boys approaching. I’d like to make a special mention of the wonderful Seniors who sing in the choir. Your exceptional voices have been a much valued addition to many celebrations. Even your peers were amazed at the Year 12 mothers’ masses and many watched on in awe and talked it about it afterwards. Your wonderful talent is reflective of the wide range of highly talented boys of this Year 12 cohort, and across the Terrace community as a whole.

Past Mothers' Mass

The Past Mothers' Mass for 2017 is being hosted by the TLG this Sunday 28 May at 10am in the Chapel of the Holy Family with morning tea being served afterwards in the Founders’ Room. If you have a family member or friend who you think may like to attend and who may not have received an invitation, please contact Marianne Eadie at marianneeadie16@gmail.com. Alternatively, please feel free to forward them the booking link. The cost of attending is $20 (plus booking fee) and tickets can be purchased via the College Events page, or BOOK HERE for Past Mothers Mass. Late comers are also welcome and can pay on the day.

May TLG Meeting

All are invited and welcome to attend the next TLG meeting, which will be at 9am on Monday 29 May in the Museum. Our guest speaker is Mr Charles Brauer, Dean of Identity. Charles has an interesting presentation lined up for us about the friendship groups of the various Houses at Terrace. Our boys are engaged in many different pursuits that assist others within our greater community. Being part of Magee, I am really only aware of the support given to their friendship group, St Mary of the Cross in Wooloowin, which has families who are challenged either by ethnic or cultural backgrounds or economic hardships. The boys assist the children through a weekly homework club, an annual working bee and fundraising during the Lenten Fair. This contribution makes a significant positive impact on these children and I am very much looking forward to hearing about what other houses are doing in their caring roles within the House groups. Please come along, it will certainly be a great opportunity to find out about the values the boys are learning outside academics and sport while at Terrace.

You are most welcome to join us for morning tea in the Founders’ Room after the meeting.
