Chess – The Last Move
Well done to our Chess players for last Friday night and the entire season of Chess. Our Junior players showed the depth and strength as Year 7 student Lachie Wood, on Board 4, took out his more senior competition, who also holds a higher Queensland Junior Chess Ranking.
Overall, the team finished in equal third position on the GPS ladder. We look forward to an even more competitive year as we keep the same team on our Premier Board in 2018.
All British Day Needs Volunteers
If you have a love for all cars British, you should make your way to Tennyson on Sunday 17 September for the All British Day. This is not only a great day in the outdoors looking at some beautifully restored cars, it is also a chance for our Terrace Family to volunteer some time in the BBQ pit and canteen. This day is a fundraising opportunity for our Music students for the 2019 Singapore tour.
If you have some time to give or some home bake you would like to provide, please go to the following link and fill in your details: https://www.volunteersignup.org/LLJTT .
We would expect families from the Premier and Second Ensembles to be involved with volunteering for this day. Students are also expected to help parents as they ultimately gain from this fundraising event.
Old Boy Passion
Thank you to Norman Clarke, GT 1954, who generously gave financial assistance to our growing Years 5 and 6 program this week. With Norman’s assistance, we could buy several expensive and essential instruments for our students in the Years 5 and 6 Band to play. We can now slowly grow in a more balanced program for our concert bands in the senior school, which will make us even more competitive.
While recently on campus, Year 12 student Harry David presented Norman with a favourite photo from a recent College event, Jazz Night 2016.

Pre dinner drinks and gate opening from 6.30pm with the show featuring all three of our Terrace Big Bands and our staff band who will play alongside our student stars and special guests who are ‘putting the band back together…’
