Terrace Ladies Group

Thank you

Thank you to the ladies who helped set up for the Year 12 Valedictory Dinner on Friday. City Hall looked amazing and I am sure the boys and their families had a wonderful evening at their last Terrace event as students!

A big thank you also to our outgoing TLG Executive members, Mrs Jayne O’Connell (Vice President – Hospitality), Mrs Tracy Murphy (Treasurer) and Ms Marianne Eadie (Secretary), for their incredible contribution to the TLG over these past two years.

We will be welcoming Mrs Leonie Flynn (Vice President – Hospitality) with the assistance of Mrs Libby Baynton, Mrs Samantha Murphy (Treasurer) and Mrs Rachel McGahon (Secretary) to the TLG Executive Committee for 2018/19. Mrs Leisa Low (Vice President – Logistics) and Mrs Mel Josephson (President) continue in their positions for 2018.

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. I am delighted to advise that all the spots for volunteers for food and help on the day have been filled. If you would still like to contribute, a cash contribution would be most appreciated to allow us to purchase some regular favourite items and decorations. Cash donations can be dropped to the Finance Office in a sealed envelope marked “TLG Staff Lunch”.

Parent Directory

Please remember to look at your Parent Directory listing on the Parent Lounge and select the details you 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. 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

There are still a couple of levels in need of Year Level Coordinators for 2018 – Year 8 and 11. 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 hands up. Please get in touch with Louise Weir via email louweir9@bigpond.com if you are interested.
