Years 5 and 6 Program Leader | Mr Brendan Ganley

We are coming to the end of our Years 5 and 6 Blanket Drive for this year.

Last Thursday night in the Campbell Centre one of those moments occurred that epitomises the breadth of the Terrace curriculum in its music program. The Years 5 and 6 members of our community, along with some other ensembles played in the Winter Concert. The concert showcased fantastic talent from the performers who have worked extremely hard. The effort of our Year 5 students was most pleasing, with some only commencing music studies this year. A highlight was seeing how far our Year 6 students have come in their final performance with dedicated practice. Well done to all involved.

With the polished musical performance from Thursday night comes the next performance which is our exam time. The practice through application to the task and revision will ensure a good final performance. The Year 6 students have their exams beginning this Monday and following their exams, will be heading to the Outdoor Education Centre for their three-night camp experience. Parents are reminded to access parent lounge and to register acceptance for your son to attend the camp.

We are coming to the end of our Years 5 and 6 Blanket Drive for this year. Once again, there has been an overwhelming response from families. Your support is always so generous. We are looking to conclude our drive on Friday, however, if there are some blankets that you would like to bring in, please do not hesitate to do so next week. The personnel conducting the Terrace Eddie’s Van program have been so appreciative and once again each morning, blankets are being distributed to our wider community as the mornings become cooler.

A reminder to parents of Years 5and 6 that core class photos will take place Thursday 1 June. Year 5 students are reminded that on that day they will come to school in their grey uniform with blazer and change for HPE at lunch time. Payment for photos can be completed online.

It is that time of term when we congratulate our students who have been working well in class and upholding the values of being a Terrace Gentleman.
