Principal’s Message | Dr Michael Carroll

Term 2 has been another busy time and I thank families for their valuable contributions during the term.

Dear Members of the Terrace Family,

It is hard to believe that Term 2 is at an end and the well-deserved holidays commence tomorrow. Our students have been engaged in exams over the last week or so and I wish to commend them on their effort and application during this time. I am confident that their hard work will produce the results they deserve.

This term we will continue to send reports in an electronic format only. An end of term letter from myself will also be emailed to all families. The reports will then be available in the Parent Lounge later that day, Tuesday 27 June. This method of distribution is different to previous terms. By posting the reports in Parent Lounge you will be able to retrieve them at any stage in the future. The College is also in the process of uploading ‘historical reports’. This will mean that all of your sons reports over his time at Terrace will be accessible through the Parent Lounge into the future.

For parents of students in Years 7, 8 and 9 there will be an additional letter emailed to families over the holidays. This letter will detail information regarding the new senior schooling ATAR system, and an invitation to a Parent Information Evening to be held on Wednesday 2August. I encourage families to review the information in my letter and to attend the Parent Information Evening.

As the term concludes I take this opportunity to outline some of the staff changes for Term 3. Ms Christene Clark, a member of the Learning Enrichment Team since 2015, is finishing at Terrace. I thank Christene for her efforts and dedication and wish her all the best with her future endeavours. Some staff are taking periods of leave during Term 3 and these include Mr Damien Fall, Ms Loren Serafin-Huey, Mr Michael Wooldridge, Mr David Giles and Mrs Mary Meadows. I wish each of these staff members all the best for their period of leave.

Although the holidays are about to commence, there are many staff, students and parents involved in a range of activities over the holidays including the USA Music tour, the NZ Rugby tour, Basketball clinics and Rugby clinics. My thanks to those involved in these activities and I hope they all go well.

Finally, Term 2 has been another busy time and I thank families for their valuable contributions during the term. I hope that the holidays provide an opportunity to recharge and I look forward to reconnection in Term 3.

Have a great break.

God Bless,

Dr Michael Carroll
