Acting Dean of Waterford | Mr Luke Gribble

The young men of Waterford again showed their willingness to give back to the Terrace community when we invited them to host the Year 6 Inter-House Football competition last Friday afternoon. It was wonderful to watch the Year 10 boys interact with their Year 6 buddies in what was a fun filled afternoon with intense action on the court and plenty of excitement off it. Terrace has a great tradition of connecting the older students as mentors to the younger boys in their House. Friday’s activities were the start of this relationship as we prepare the Year 10s for this important role as they move toward the Senior school. The Year 6 boys certainly appreciated the connection and commitment on display last Friday. 

The assignment period has now come to an end with the last of the assignments for the term due this week. The focus now shifts quickly to the upcoming exam block which commences on Friday 14 June. The exam timetable was handed out to the boys on Monday. It would be wise for the boys to now be working through the ‘Checklist’ booklet and other revision material provided to them as they focus on preparation for the upcoming exam block. At home, the boys should be blocking out a period of time each night to not only complete homework but invest time into their revision.
