Welcome to the Terrace family. To ensure your son is ready with all his uniform requirements at the commencement of 2022, we attend to all uniform fittings and purchases in Term 4 of this year.
A uniform fitting appointment is essential for new students. Appointments are available between Thursday 7 October 2021 and Tuesday 16 November 2021.
Appointments are available between the hours of 8.30am – 11.15am and 12.45pm - 3.00pm on Tuesday, Thursday and Friday.

The time taken may be shorter than the allocated 45 minutes, but we schedule each appointment at these intervals so that we can comfortably attend to your son’s needs.
Our experienced staff and current parent volunteers will be on hand to fit your son with his uniform, allowing plenty of room for growth for the January commencement and beyond.
As appointments fill quickly, we encourage you to please contact the Terrace Shop as soon as possible on 07 3214 5258 between 8.30am - 2.30pm (during term time) to secure your preferred appointment day and time for Term 4.

Dear Terrace Parents and Caregivers,
Welcome to the 2022 school year! As the parent or caregiver of a Terrace student, you are automatically a welcomed member of the TLG, historically known as The Terrace Ladies’ Group. The TLG rallies and co-ordinates parents and caregiver support for the Terrace Family in a variety of ways. All parents and caregivers are most welcome to be involved in this support group. The TLG support group provides a terrific opportunity to get to know other members of the Terrace Family while working towards a common goal. The TLG role in the Terrace community comprises three main areas – support the various aspects of College life, hospitality at various College sponsored functions and Care and Concern. Family, work and other commitments keep parents very busy, so we are extremely grateful for the assistance we receive throughout the year.
Hospitality and Catering
The TLG provides support to the College and wider Terrace Family in many ways. This includes by providing hospitality and catering at many College functions, ranging from welcome functions held at the start of each year, to an annual Past Mothers’ Mass. The hospitality offered by the TLG at College functions is warmly received and appreciated by the Terrace community. The TLG also coordinates larger events for the College throughout the year. Events such as the annual High Tea for mothers in Years 5 - 9, the Terrace Fashion Parade and various other functions provide a strong basis for building community connections. Selected functions throughout the year also provide opportunities for the Terrace Community to contribute towards fundraising
Care and Concern
The Care and Concern group provides support to the Terrace Family, in happy busy times, and also in times of crisis. Confidential support is typically provided anonymously, unless otherwise agreed, with members of the Terrace Family usually providing a delicious home cooked meal for a family who have lost a loved one, or people welcoming new bundles of joy into their lives. Volunteers for the Terrace Family Care and Concern are always welcome. Please contact us firstname.lastname@example.org
The TLG runs the Tennyson canteen under the supervision of our Canteen Convenor and with the assistance of parent volunteers. A link to a volunteer sign-on is included in a notice of game schedules sent out to families each home game week. We request volunteers according to year levels and this provides an additional opportunity for parents in the same year level to make connections.
The role of the TLG is varied and offers many opportunities for parents to be involved in a variety of ways. If you would like to be included on the TLG database, please provide your email details on the form below and return it to the College in the envelope provided. Welcome to the Terrace Family. We look forward to meeting you during your first weeks at Terrace.
Mrs Hayley McBrien
Terrace has for many years run a Buddy Program for its newest Terracians, where the boys are paired with buddies from Year 11 or 12 to assist them in settling into their new environment. This has proven to be very successful and the boys from both year levels gain much from the experience.
The Terrace Ladies Group also offer a Buddy Program for our newest parents, who may also find the transition to a new school tricky. Parents and caregivers of current students are buddied with new parents and caregivers according to suburb and son’s year level.
As we’ve all been new to Terrace at some point, we are hopefully able to help with some of those inevitable early questions – How do I use the Terrace App to buy tickets to College events? Do parents attend the Swimming Carnival? How many sports uniforms do they really need? A simple question to an experienced parent buddy can save a lot of confusion or uncertainty.
If you would like to be part of the Parent Buddy Program, please fill in the form below and return it to the College. We will then organise for a current parent to make contact with you in the weeks leading up to the commencement of school in January. They will be more than happy to pass on advice and/or information that will hopefully make for an easier transition for you and your son in the first couple of weeks and months.
