Years 5 and 6 Program Leader | Mr Brendan Ganley

The Year 6 students are finishing off their term at Maroon.

We have concluded our Blanket Drive and the response has been overwhelming, this was an amazing display of generosity once again by those associated. Many thanks to the students of Years 5 and 6 along with their families. As these mornings are a bit cooler, your support will be cherished by those receiving the blankets.

Week 8 at Terrace signals exam time, putting together a big term of work and finishing strong. Our Year 6 students have completed their exam block for Term 2 a big congratulations to these men. Year 6 now finish off the term with their Outdoor Education experience over the next two weeks. Year 6 Blue and Gold will be out at Maroon in Week 8 and 6 Red and White will be there in Week 9. They will most certainly enjoy the cooler weather. Over the final two weeks of term, Year 6 have also taken part in a culminating activity through visiting the Brisbane Museum Science Centre. This was a part of their Forces and Circuits unit in Science.

For our Year 5 students, this has been your second exam block at Terrace and we are sure that you will be better for the experience from last term in knowing the time that is required during each exam, and being aware that the revision and preparation before an exam is valuable to giving yourself the best chance at success. It is important as with everything that you attempt, to believe in your ability and to give yourself every chance by being active with your exam to the end of allotted time.

Parents of 5 Blue and Gold are most welcome to Tuesday morning mass in Week 9 in the Chapel. Mass will begin at 7.45am. Year 5 Red on Tuesday presented a reflective Eucharist celebrating the theme of being the best we can be.

As we finish off our Term 2 activities, we thank the adults who have helped us whether it be through Sport, Culture or in the classroom, your support is much appreciated and goes a long way.

As always each Friday morning, there is tutoring available for Years 5 and 6 students in the Treacy Centre.
