Terrace Ladies Group

Be sure to come along to the wonderful morning planned for the Mothers Retreat on Monday 7 August at Tennyson.

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

A very special thank you to all the parents who came along to the TLG meeting on Monday morning. Our guest speaker was Mrs Julie Quinn, Dean of Studies who focussed on Year 12 OP matters. It was good to see more than just Year 12 parents there as her presentation is certainly valid for anyone with children coming through the College now. Hearing Julie’s presentation is an affirmation as to the extraordinary lengths the College goes to in order to facilitate the best possible outcomes for our sons. Thank you Julie, it is very much appreciated.

Thank you also to Christine Franzmann, Year 12 Coordinator, who gave us an update on the parent function organised for the night of the Formal. The function is being held at “the Charming Squire”, just near the Formal venue so all in the vicinity of each other for convenience of dropping off and collecting our young ones from their evening. Tickets are $40 per person and RSVP’s close on 8 August. Details with the booking link are on the Events Page.

Christine also mentioned that the Year 12 Coordinators are organising lunch for our Senior boys doing QCS on Tuesday 29 and Wednesday 30 August. A link will be emailed to Year 12 parents shortly calling on assistance for provisions and serving.

Save the Date | 7 August | Mothers Retreat

Be sure to come along to the wonderful morning planned for the Mothers Retreat on Monday 7 August at Tennyson. There will be Tai Chi under the jacarandas followed by a delicious brunch of fresh produce with cold pressed juices afterwards. Wear comfortable clothes, no active wear necessary. A link will be on the college events page later this week for purchasing your ticket (cost $30). An email will be sent out next week with more details and also with the link to the events page for purchasing your ticket. All are welcome.

Year 12 Formal | Etiquette Classes | 8 August | Week 5

The TLG hold etiquette classes during religion classes in period 4 on Tuesday 8 August. The boys are quite excited by that stage about their big night so the role playing gets them really engaged – lots of learning, but lots of laughing too. We have received great response to the call out for assistance with this, so thank you to those ladies who have offered. We will be in touch soon with more details.
