The Terry Bennett Cup

Mr. Wayne Haworth (currently, Assistant Principal at Nossal High School) proposed the idea of this event to the then Assistant Principal of Nossal High School, Dr. Toni Meath (Current Principal of McRobertson Girls' High School) to bring these two new schools (Nossal High School & Suzanne Cory High School) together once a year. Mr Peter Starford (Principal of Suzanne Cory High School) also envisioned that this event will strengthen the ties between these two schools. The Cup was named to honour Mr. Terrance Bennett for undertaking the daunting task of estabilishing these two schools.

Bennett, Terrance G.

Terry (as his fans call him!) has been a principal class member for 21 years. He was principal at Wantirna College for 9 years 2000-2008. It was that time when he took up the position of Project Manager for Selective Entry Schools' Project. He oversaw the planning of the two new selective entry high schools (Nossal High School & Suzanne Cory High School) and also the new processes of student selection into all 4 selective entry high schools. Currently(Nov, 2013), Terry is Executive Principal with DEECD at Melba College. Melba is a new school this year brought together from the merger between Croydon SC and Maroondah SC at the start of 2012. In 2013, the merged school was renamed with its current new name after Dame Nellie Melba.
