TLG Thanksgiving Mass – Friday 3 November 9.30am

Last Friday, 3 November, we had the end of year TLG Thanksgiving Mass in the Chapel of the Holy Family, followed by Morning Tea in the Founders’ room. We have had a lot to celebrate and be thankful for this year, especially our Year 12s who are spending their final days at the College. The choir, led by Mrs Bernadette Debattista, was truly wonderful. Your music and hymns are something which we all truly appreciate. A special thank you also to Mr Charles Brauer and Mrs Judy McGuire for putting together the wonderful booklet to help us celebrate and to the ladies who participated in the ceremony.

Year 12 Lunch

Thank you to Mrs Lorilie Cunningham for organising the Year 12 Mothers' lunch at Gambaro last week and to your team of helpers: Mrs Christine Franzmann, Mrs Helen Smethhurst, Mrs Paula Galloway and Mrs Meaghan Round. I would also like to make special mention of Mrs Meaghan Round for putting together the beautiful collection of photos of our Year 12 boys at different phases of their lives. We all loved seeing ourselves and each other – especially since we remember these boys as the little boys they were when they started.

College Staff Christmas Lunch – Wednesday 29 November

NB: please note a change to this day – originally scheduled for Tuesday 28 November, now Wednesday 29 November

The annual Staff Christmas Lunch is a wonderful celebration of our staff in appreciation for all their efforts and support of our boys throughout the year. The TLG hosts this through the generosity of our families with contributions of help on the day, food and monetary donations. An email has been circulated this week seeking assistance via Volunteer Sign up sheets for this event in providing food, helping on the day or cash donations (Staff Lunch - helps click here, Staff Lunch - food donations click here, cash donations dropped to Finance Office labelled TLG Staff Lunch). Please assist where you can, the College Staff look forward to this very much and appreciate the festive atmosphere we put on for them. It is a terrific end to their very busy year.

Parent Directory

Another reminder for everyone to go to their Parent Directory listing on the Parent Lounge and select the details they wish to be shared. This is how you do it (more detailed instructions are available via the College App):

Parent Lounge | Parent Details | Parent Directory | then select “Maintain” at the “My Parent Listing”. Then you need to select to “Share” which aspect of your listing you want public – be sure to “Save Changes”.

There are still many blank spaces in the Directory across all year levels so if you notice friends without their details on the electronic version, please send them a reminder perhaps. The Parent Directory is a fundamental component of the College’s inclusive community so it is vital we have the information at hand.

A printed version of the Family Directory will also be available for 2018 based on what you allow through Parent Lounge.

Year Level Coordinators

We are wanting to collate names of ladies to be the Year Level Coordinators for next year. This is not an onerous role, but crucially important, and involves organising events like coffee mornings and a couple of evening functions per year for your year level. Thanks to those who have already put their hand up. I know we are set for Years 5, 7 and 10. If you are interested in coordinating the other years, please get in touch via email on melissa.a.jo@gmail.com.

Canteen Update

I am pleased to advise that we have filled the Canteen Convenor position. Noelene Brooks comes to us with a lot of experience in catering and canteen services, more recently at the University of Queensland. She will commence at the beginning of Cricket season. Please welcome Noelene when you are there and make her feel welcome.

Coming Up

  • Wednesday 29 November – Staff Christmas Lunch (NB: changed from Tuesday 28 November as previously advised).
