Terrace Ladies Group

As we wrap up Term 2, we are looking forward to Term 3 as there are a few wonderful things planned.

TLG Meeting | 17 July, 9am GT125 | Mrs Julie Quinn Dean of Studies our Guest Speaker

Our next TLG meeting is to be at 9am on 17 July in GT125 and we are fortunate to have Mrs Julie Quinn, Dean of Studies as our guest speaker. Julie is going to be focusing on Year 12 matters – University Applications, OPs, the QCS program and parenting our boys in their final stages of schooling. While this is primarily a Senior topic, it would also be useful for parents of boys in the higher grades looking forward – or perhaps you may have senior daughters at other schools and would benefit from this information too. All are welcome to join us for morning tea in the Founders’ Room afterwards. Please email marianneeadie16@gmail.com to let her know if you will be attending for catering purposes.

Save the Date | 7 August –| Mothers Retreat

Be sure to put this wonderful morning of tai chi into your diaries where you will relax and relieve stress and anxiety with calming meditation in motion. We have two instructors from the Australian Academy of Tai Chi in New Farm coming to guide us in a group session under the jacarandas at Tennyson. Afterwards we will be serving a delicious range of fresh produce and cold pressed juices from Kiss the Berry, a business based at Southbank. A link for registering your attendance will be forwarded via an email closer to the day and the cost of attending will be $30 for the morning. No need to wear your active wear for this. Just comfortable clothes and footwear will do so you can easily go about your day afterwards feeling rejuvenated and revived.

Spring Luncheon | 1 September | Hillstone, St Lucia

Plans are advancing for the Ladies Spring Luncheon for 1 September at Hillstone, St Lucia. This is shaping up be a wonderful celebration of our Terrace community all around a beautiful Spring theme. Tickets will be $125 and include a glass of Veuve Clicquot champagne on arrival (sponsored by SSKB Strata Managers) with canapés on the terrace, a sit down two-course meal with Riddle Range Sauvignon Blanc and Chateau De Brique “83” Rose on the tables. There will also be special drink prices, including Veuve Clicquot at $75 per bottle (usually $115) at the cash bar, great entertainment and raffle tickets to win amazing prizes.

To continue the festivities, Gambaro’s have provided a host of generous offers for us to enjoy at the end of the day. We have arranged a private charter of Council buses to get us there safely and in a timely fashion.

McKinney’s Jewellers have kindly offered a $5000 voucher towards our fundraising for the event. Thank you once again to McKinney’s for their generosity towards our TLG functions. Your ongoing support is greatly appreciated.

There are many other terrific prizes on offer also. Details of these will be available closer to the event. If you would like to contribute a prize or voucher towards our fundraising efforts, please get in touch with Margie Nasser at margiewolfe@hotmail.com. All contributions are most welcome.

Invitations will be emailed on 3 August (Week 4) with tickets going on sale the following week on Tuesday 8 August through Try-Booking. The covering letter accompanying the invitation will include a link to Try-Booking for your convenience. Seating arrangements are in tables of 10, so it is a good idea to start planning your tables and nominate a table captain.
