Terrace Ladies Group

Red and Black Cocktail Party

I would like to give you all a friendly reminder that the tickets for the Red and Black Cocktail Party to be held on Saturday 3 March can be bought via this (Link) and on the College Events page . This is the only full school event for 2018 and is a social occasion, not a fundraiser. Tickets are $55 each, which include canapés and live entertainment with a cash bar. Out of the 700 tickets available, there are less than 30 left at this stage, so don’t delay in getting your tickets.

Years 5 – 9 Mothers' Morning Tea

Looking ahead, on Friday 27 April (Week 2, Term 2) we have the Years 5 – 9 Mothers’ Morning Tea in the Victoria Park Golf Club marquee. Last year was the first time an event like this was held. The 300 ladies who attended all agreed that it was a fabulous morning for connecting with other ladies in our sons’ year groups. The term “friendraiser” was the theme of the day and it certainly was all of that. Planning is well underway for this year’s event. More details will be coming over the following weeks with invitations being emailed before the end of term. Ticket sales will be via the Events page on the College website and of course it is always a good idea to get in early to avoid the disappointment of missing out. Ladies are seated in nominated year groups, so there is no urgency to organise groups to sit with. We also take a lot of care in the placing ladies on tables to ensure you have a wonderful time together.

Buddy Program

It is no accident that Terrace is known for our hospitality and close community, one way we foster this is through the TLG Parent Buddy Program. Almost 90 families were matched this year with current families in the same year level or suburb. Being a buddy is as easy as helping with public transport tips, uniform questions or coming along to meetings or events together. Thank you to everyone involved and if you would like a buddy or to be one, please email Mrs Leisa Low bllow@bigpond.com. Leisa is the Vice President of the TLG, in charge of logistics, and she would be very happy to assist.

Parent Directory

There are still spaces throughout the electronic Parent Directory on the Parent Lounge, so I am sending out another reminder to parents yet to 'sign on'. Please log onto the Parent Lounge, update your details and “share” if you are happy for others in your various year levels to contact you if the need arises (e.g. accidental bag swap, lifts to training, invitations etc). This is also crucial for our year level coordinators. If you have any queries on how to update your details on the Family Directory on the Parent Lounge, again, please email Mrs Leisa Low on: bllow@bigpond.com.

TLG Correspondence

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. Please also ensure that you save this email address into your contacts as it may find its way to Junk Mail.
