Acting Deputy Principal | Mr Damien Fall

The thoughts and prayers of the Terrace Family this week are with long-serving staff member Mr Geoff Ludlow, whose dear mother Ruth passed away on the weekend.  Ruth had a long and fulfilling life, but losing a parent is never easy and we are conscious that things have been tough for Geoff this week as he has got on with the job of teaching his classes.  Ruth will be farewelled on Thursday of next week.  May she rest in peace.

This week, we welcomed a new member of staff to the College.  Mr Shaun Steadman has commenced in the important role of Director of ICT.  Our school is a complex environment and its ICT services are critical in ensuring we deliver best practice to our students and their families.  Among other responsibilities, Shaun will lead our IT Steering Committee, whose focus will be the ongoing implementation of appropriate IT resources and practices into teaching and learning.  We extend a warm Terrace welcome to Shaun and wish him well in what is a critical position at the College.  Sincere thanks to Mr Brett Auton, who has led our IT team in exemplary fashion over recent months.

In other staffing news, Mrs Karen Lalic this week commenced in the role of Studies Office Assistant following the departure of Mrs Anne Kirkwood.  Karen’s main focus will be the QCS program in this, its final year.  Mr Terry Thompson, our Treacy House Dean, also returned this week following a short period of leave.  It is always wonderful to have Terry’s enthusiasm and professionalism at the College.

Wishing all members of our College community the very best as we approach the busy final weeks of the term.
