Terrace Ladies Group

Plans are advancing for the Ladies Spring Luncheon for 1 September.

Tennyson Canteen

Last Saturday, while it was a bye weekend, saw seventeen football games in the morning against various schools and six rugby trial matches in the afternoon against Churchie. We ended up having a much busier day than expected. Thank you to everyone who assisted, however, more assistance would have been ideal. If you notice the canteen having a busy patch and have a little time to spare, we would really appreciate your assistance, even a short amount of time is of assistance.

This Saturday is a home day at Tennyson with a full football schedule and several rugby trial matches being held against Ipswich Grammar. Please sign up to assist in the canteen if you can. All help is greatly appreciated.

Past Mothers' Mass

The past mothers Mass was held last Sunday with more than 80 ladies in attendance. It was a lovely morning – with a special touch of fine china and lovely champagne. Mrs Maureen Tynan, who had four sons go through the College, gave us an emotionally warm reflection on her time while the boys were at school. She talked about the threads of our lives that make the tapestry of Terrace both while our families are here, and into the years that follow. The wonderful Choir once again provided a very stirring side to the celebration. The ladies who attended all commented on what a lovely Mass and morning tea it was. If you have heard from anyone who was unaware of the Past Mothers’ Mass and would like to be added to our database for next year, please pass on their details to Marianne at Marianneeadie16@gmail.com

May TLG Meeting

At the TLG meeting on Monday 29 May we had Mr Charles Brauer, Dean of Identity attend as our guest speaker. Charles provided a very interesting insight into the pastoral work our boys are engaged in and explained it in the context of the wider community and global Edmund Rice initiatives. We certainly gained a better understanding on the vast range of caring roles our boys can, and do, participate in and how they are developing the knowledge, humility and wisdom of the “Terrace Gentleman”. Thank you Charles for taking the time to attend the TLG meeting.
