Terrace Ladies Group

Welcome back to another exciting year for the Terrace Ladies Group (TLG) and a special welcome to those parents who are new to the College. We had a lovely start to the first week back with a morning tea on the Treacy Centre verandah for the Years 5 and 7 parents on Monday morning. There was so much excitement after the wonderful morning gatherings with tutor groups and the Red Thunder Drumline parade to assembly. Even those of us who have been here a while always enjoy watching the start to the school year this way.

Next week the TLG will be hosting Welcome Functions upon the completion of the Information Evenings (which commence at 6pm) for the following years. All parents are welcome to come along and enjoy a catered light supper with a cash bar (EFT available).

  • Years 5 and 6 Tuesday 30 January (Treacy Court)
  • Year 7 Wednesday 31 January (Treacy Court)
  • Year 10 Thursday 1 February (Waterford Place)

The TLG has requested assistance from the Year 9 families with these events. We have enough helpers for Tuesday evening, so if you are able to come along on Wednesday or Thursday evenings, please follow these volunteer sign-on links: Volunteer for Year 7 Wednesday evening here; and Volunteer for Year 10 Thursday evening here. We are most grateful for your help.

On Monday 29 January in the GT125 Theatre at 7.30am our first TLG meeting for the year is being held and all are welcome to attend. Dr Carroll, the College Principal, will be our guest speaker. We look forward to hearing about what has been happening over the holidays in the school and what he has planned for the new year. Important information regarding the building work and how the boys and families will need to adjust around it will also be provided. Please join us for breakfast style refreshments in the Founders’ Room afterwards.

New Format of TLG Meetings: Please note the new start time of TLG meetings of 7.30am. We are commencing the new format of breakfast style meetings to reflect the work and family commitments of our mothers. The Founders’ Room is where we will be meeting for the remainder of the year, with the exception of the AGM in Term 4 where we will be in GT125. The purpose of the meetings is to provide an update on TLG matters and provide a forum for conversation around items of interest. This may also involve guest speakers from either within the College or external experts. An email to the TLG database will be sent out the week prior as a reminder of the meetings. If you are not on our mailing list but would like to be, please email our Secretary, Mrs Rachel McGahon, on terrace_ladies@outlook.com
