Years 5 and 6 Program Leader | Mr Brendan Ganley

This week marks the conclusion of our Blanket Drive and the response has been overwhelming. It was an amazing display of generosity once again by those associated. Many thanks to the students of Years 5 and 6 along with their families. As these mornings are a bit cooler, your support will be cherished by those receiving the blankets.

Week 8 at Terrace signals exam time, putting together a big term of work and finishing strongly. Revision booklets are in circulation with assignments coming to an end.

For our Year 5 students, this will be your second exam block at Terrace and we are sure that you will be better for the experience from last term - knowing the time that is required during each exam, and being aware that the revision and preparation before an exam is valuable to giving yourself the best chance at success. It is important as with everything that you attempt, to believe in your ability and to give yourself every chance by being active with your exam to the end of the allotted time.

At our Years 5 and 6 assembly last Friday morning, students from each class were once again rewarded for their exceptional efforts. This recognition demonstrated some great themes, such as being prepared, displaying initiative and developing engagement through each lesson. Congratulations to the following students: 

5 Blue – George Hales and Phillip Feros
5 Green – Isaac Hession and Domenic Catalano
5 Red – Joseph Grice and Daniel Naughton
5 White – Harry Hislop and Max Lloyd
5 Yellow – Orlando Tessaralo and Adam Clayton
6 Blue – Thomas Keogh and Marcus Saunders
6 Green – Matthew Rodighiero and Aidan Clancy 
6 Red – Jack Curtain and Lucas McIntosh
6 White – Anton Fang and Tomasz Hedditch

With every Years 5 and 6 assembly, we also recognise students who have been enacting the core values of being a Terrace Gentleman through our RICE Award. Well done to Cameron French, Nathaniel Monsour, Harry Daly and Remy Tollenaere.

This Tuesday morning, parents of 5 Green are most welcome to Tuesday morning Mass in the Chapel. This will be followed in Week 10 by 5 Blue and 5 Yellow combining together to celebrate the Eucharist. Mass will begin at 7.45am. Year 5 Red on Tuesday presented a reflective Eucharist celebrating the theme of being the best that we can be. 

As we finish off our Term 2 activities, we thank the adults who have helped us whether it be through sport, culture or in the classroom, your support is much appreciated and goes a long way. 

As always, each Friday morning, there is tutoring available for Years 5 and 6 students in the Treacy Centre.
