Terrace Ladies Group
Thank you to the Year 7 mothers who helped the TLG Committee at the Orientation evening for the boys and families of Year 7 2018 last Thursday afternoon.
A really big thank you to all the helpers who helped prepare and serve food in the canteen and provided home bake to sell at the Inter-House Athletics carnival last Friday. It was a great success and I think all the boys enjoyed the canteen food and didn’t go hungry!
The TLG AGM was held on Monday and it was wonderful to see a good turn out at our last meeting of this year. For those of you who missed it, I would again like to offer my thanks to the outgoing TLG Executive members, Mrs Jayne O’Connell (Vice-President (Hospitality)), Mrs Tracy Murphy (Treasurer) and Ms Marianne Eadie (Secretary) for their commitment to the TLG over the past two years. These ladies are amazing and have made my first year as president run smoothly and we had a lot of fun along the way! Thank you also to Mrs Natalie Davidson for her contribution as Year Level Coordinator.
I would also like to welcome and introduce our incoming TLG Executive Committee members for 2018/19:
- Vice-President (Hospitality) – Mrs Leonnie Flynn
- Treasurer – Mrs Sam Murphy
- Secretary – Mrs Rachel McGahon.
- Care and Concern Coordinator - Mrs Norelle McHugh (continuing)
- Year Level Coordinator - Mrs Lou Weir
At the AGM, TLG members voted on the proposed changes to meeting frequency and start time for the TLG meetings in 2018. Members in attendance and votes received by email resulted in these changes being accepted.
The result is that in 2018 there will be five TLG meetings (one at the start of the year and one each term, toward the end of term). The new format will be breakfast meetings, commencing at 7.30am in the Founders’ Room, with a light breakfast and tea and coffee served. We will trial this for 2018 and then make a decision about the future together with members at next year’s AGM.

College Staff Christmas Lunch – Tuesday 28 November

The TLG hosts this through the generosity of our families with contributions of help on the day, food and monetary donations. More details on this will be distributed in the next few weeks along with links to volunteer sign-on pages.
