Principal’s Message | Dr Michael Carroll

Dear members of the Terrace Family,

Term 3 has drawn to an end, and I wish to acknowledge and thank the Terrace Family for the way you have embraced this term.  Traditionally Term 3 is a busy and full term, and this year has been no different.  However, the work, dedication and support of many has ensured it has been a successful term on many fronts.

The students have been undertaking exams this week and the staff will complete the marking process on Friday.  Term 3 reports will be released in Week 1 of next term. There will be no parent-teacher meetings in Term 4.

The GPS co-curricular program has now been completed for the term.  My thanks and congratulations to all who have been involved with Chess, Basketball and Rugby in Term 3.  I believe that ‘on and off the field’ all the programs this term have been very successful.  Track and Field preparations are underway, with other activities also gearing up for next season.

The building works will be continuing over the holiday period and we should see some significant progress upon our return next term. 

On Friday 7 September, over 500 people descended upon Brisbane City Hall for Terralicious 2018.  It was a wonderful event where plenty of fun was had and money was raised to support the College and Conor Tweedy.  My thanks to the TLG and Mrs Jo Evans and her team for such a great day.  Over $50 000 was raised at the event, including a very generous donation from the Boulton family.  After winning the main prize of a Hyundai car, Mrs Sue Boulton donated the proceeds back to the Conor Tweedy Appeal.  Thank you to the Boulton Family.

My thanks to the extraordinary number of people who have been supporting Conor Tweedy and his family this term.  Conor continues to work very hard at his rehabilitation program and has also continued to have a presence at College activities.  This will continue next term.  Many people have been supporting the Conor Tweedy Appeal in a variety of ways.  The College will be hosting a Long Lunch at Tennyson on Saturday 24 November, with all funds raised going to the Conor Tweedy Appeal.  It will be an extraordinary event and I encourage you to book and bring your friends along.  Details of the event and how to book will be advertised via the College’s various media platforms.  I hope to see many of you there.

Finally, as we prepare for the holiday period, I remind families that I will be undertaking knee replacement surgery and will be on leave until Monday 12 November.  In my absence, Mr Chris Ryan will assume the role of Acting College Principal.  I thank Chris for accepting this role as it allows me to have this surgery. I look forward to returning in early November in full health.

Have a great week.
God Bless.

Dr Michael Carroll

My best wishes for a restful and rejuvenating break for our students and particularly to our Senior class who commence preparation for their final term in the red and black.

Dean of Studies | Mrs Julie Quinn


Today marks the final day of our exams. Many boys have managed this demanding week very well, ensuring that their revision and preparation have placed them in a position to give their very best. I hope that every boy can go on holidays knowing that irrespective of the results, they have given their best effort in the preparation and the execution of their exams. As always, it is most encouraging to witness the many conversations among the boys that include aspects relating to subject content and explanations of concepts.


Reports will be uploaded to TASS on Friday 12 October. “Bubble” reports will be included for Years 10, 11 and 12 students, indicating placement within the cohort. There are no formal times set for communication with teachers around outcomes from Term 3, but the normal channels of communication still exist for conversations and feedback. 


Yesterday was the presentation evening for all the Immersion units. This program continues to challenge and inspire our boys in so many ways, from gaining new knowledge to empathy and understanding of others in the world, to appreciating the gifts of one another. My thanks to our staff who make this experience possible and so rewarding. Every boy will receive a report on his involvement within the Immersion unit that he completed.


I do hope that these holidays provide some down time for many of our boys who have worked so diligently this term. It is also a time for families to relax and enjoy each other’s company without the busy pace of term time. I would also encourage boys to spend some of this time engaged in reading books. I often quote that reading is an investment in one’s future. Not only is knowledge gained but skills in comprehension, grammar, sentence structure, punctuation and vocabulary are added. The more you read, the more words you gain exposure to, and these words will inevitably make their way into your everyday vocabulary.

In our frenetic internet world, our attention is spread across many different directions as we multi-task through every day. As  quoted by the article Reading is to the Mind What Exercise is to the Body -

“In a single five minute span, the average person will divide their time between working on a task, checking email, chatting with a couple of people (via gchat, skype, etc.), keeping an eye on twitter, monitoring their smartphone, and interacting with co-workers. This type of behaviour causes stress levels to rise, and lowers productivity”.

Enjoy the break and I look forward to sharing our final term commencing on Monday 8 October.

Dean of Students | Mr Damien Fall

There will be a number of significant, temporary staffing changes within the pastoral team in Term 4 this year.  With Dr Carroll taking leave at the beginning of next term, Mr Chris Ryan will assume the role of Acting Principal and I will move to Acting College Dean.  Mr Damien Cuddihy will move to the role of Acting Dean of Students for the first five weeks of Term 4.  Mr Steven Hohn will move to Dean of Waterford Place for this time and his role as Mahoney House Dean will be filled by Mr Dwayne Hoy.  While this means there are multiple changes to our pastoral team for the first five weeks of next term, we are very confident about the quality of people stepping in.  Please feel free to contact whoever you feel most comfortable dealing with, if you require any assistance regarding your son’s pastoral journey.

I need to mention that a number of students’ haircuts only just made it to the end of term.  It is the responsibility of every student to ensure he returns on day one of the new term with a haircut that meets the College’s guidelines, but most will obviously need parental assistance with this.  While I understand that some families will be heading away on holidays, this does not change the need to ensure students’ haircuts are sorted out before the return to school.  We will need to apply a consequence to any student who fails to meet our expectations with this important matter.

With the weather warming up noticeably and many students returning to wearing shorts, attention turns to socks.  There seem to be many pairs of socks that have become too old and need to be replaced.  As a general rule, if socks don’t come all the way up to the bottom of the knee and won’t stay up, they need to be retired.  As with many aspects of school life, socks are a small but very important matter that we expect students to get right.  Term 4 will see us focus on this matter and we ask that students ensure they work with us and wear the uniform correctly.  Perhaps now is a good time to invest in a few new pairs of socks.

Finally, on behalf of the College Pastoral Team, best wishes to all of our families for the holidays.  There are a lot of tired students and staff at the moment and I’m sure everyone will enjoy the break.  I look forward to a positive and productive final term of 2018.

Dean of Identity | Mr Charles Brauer

The Joy of Friendship

We end each day together with the words “the joy of your friendship”. These are the closing words to our College prayer. Whose friendship are we referring to? What joy can we experience?

Ending the day through prayer doesn’t happen at every school. In fact, it’s quite unique to Edmund Rice schools. For 215 years, Edmund Rice schools have used prayer to “book end” the day – making it clear “the beginning” and “the end” of a school day together. This idea of “beginning” and “end” is in our College crest. The Alpha and Omega in the book of wisdom in our crest represents the beginning and end. Knowing where things begin (originate) and where things end (or should be directed) is quite a tricky thing to truly understand. However, by ending our day with prayer, and with the words “the joy of your friendship” we are reminded of how we should relate to one another.

Our Year 10s who have been away on their Immersion to Timor-Leste have been given the unique opportunity to experience face-to-face the joy of our friendship with the people of Timor. Below are excerpts of their reflections of their immersion experience through the lens of our College prayer. 

O’Jesus, make our hearts so human….
Timor-Leste and Terrace have a unique relationship.  The connection I made with the people while on Immersion was something special. Initially, walking into this experience I was battling some personal problems that made me question what these people would be like or if I’d be considered an outsider on not. Ironically, they treated me more like family than some people in Australia do. The more I interacted with the people of Timor, the more I realised they were just like you and I, that these people, at their heart, are fellow humans. 
So that others may feel at home with you….
When I was in East Timor I got to feel at home with you when we were at the Canossa College in Baucau and we were talking to some of the students. We sat down with them, and they made us feel at home with all of the conversations that they brought us into. 
Through all of our shared interactions, each of us didn’t care what other people were thinking, we were just there to experience something new and learn about their culture, and each other as people.
In the power of your love and the joy of your friendship….
The Terrace Timor Immersion perfectly encapsulates our own College prayer. “In the power of your love and the joy of your friendship”, this line in particular, I truly believe any Terracian who has gone to Timor will understand. The Timorese in all of our experiences have made us welcome in their homes, villages and country, at every opportunity they will ask us how we’re going or if we have eaten enough, when they themselves may not have. Throughout our Immersion we were welcomed into convents, churches and homes such as the two Connosan convents we lived in, the church in Terasu and Father Denisio’s community in Manatuto. The welcoming nature of the Timorese people made, and continues to make, the Terrace Timor Immersion experience so unique and if we're being honest, the best. 

I wish all members of our Terrace Family are safe and happy holiday period and look forward to seeing fresh faces ready for Term 4.

Dean of Waterford | Mr Damien Cuddihy

Over the last three weeks the Year 10 students have been involved in the 2018 Immersion program. The program aims to extend students through a variety of challenging but extremely rewarding Immersion experiences. 

Throughout the program, students are not only being instructed by passionate scholars in their field but frequently have had the privilege of being invited into the lives and hearing the stories of others who face challenges for various reasons. It is in this space that our students have the opportunity to reflect on what is fractured and yet so sacred in the world we live in. The experiences will be different for each of the boys and our hope is that these seeds will continue to grow into the future. In talking to the boys this week and hearing their stories, I know that they have thoroughly enjoyed the process. I would like to thank the parent body for your support on a number of levels. 

Finally, the staff involved in the program are a super group of people who consistently “present” to your sons. Enjoy the break. 

Years 5 and 6 Program Leader | Mr Brendan Ganley

Today is the end of an extraordinary term. Terrace is such a busy environment and all students will now finish knowing the results of putting in all the work possible to achieve their goals. The preparation weeks have taken place and now the application week has concluded. With Term 4 being so short, being organised in the first week of term will be crucial to success during the final term. 

Assessment will begin very early in Term 4, and preparation for this is important. Assessment calendars will be provided on the first day, which gives each student guidance to plan for the short term.

Even though reports will not come out until after the holidays, the achievements of the term should be reflected on. The results now can’t change, but there could be reflection if the effort throughout the term was the best possible. If we cannot reflect on the past, there is little chance the future can be improved.

Today in the Campbell Centre, the Annual Science Fair took place. It was the culmination of a term’s work in Science for our Years 5 and 6 students. Days like today are valuable to pursue the challenges of science by engaging in exercises that involve prediction and discovery. Well done to our award winners on the day for your thoroughness and willingness to delve into the question of WHY?

A very happy holiday to all families. Wishing you a safe break with your family and may we see you re-energised for Term 4.

Terrace Chess

The 2018 GPS season was the best period in Terrace Chess history. Overall, the 1st team (Premier team) placed equal second with BBC, far above our expected result of fourth. As the Captain, it has been an absolute privilege to lead the team to our strongest result since 2015, where we came equal third with three other schools.

On the whole, despite some unlucky defeats at the end of the term, our junior team also outperformed its expected capability and even managed to draw against Churchie’s junior team, the winning team of the junior division. Likewise, although our lower teams usually have difficult prospects in their respective games, this year, they significantly improved and outperformed their competition with a third managing to attain a position on the podium. Thus, Terrace’s shift from chess being just a Term 3 activity, to being a whole of year endeavour has significantly contributed to our performance in 2018.

Yet, for the 1st team, our competition is not over yet, we have another opportunity to exceed expectations on 19 and 20 of October, where we participate in the State School Team Chess Championships. As this is the first time Terrace has ever qualified for this event, it is another milestone for the team.

I would like to thank everybody that made our performance this year possible, including: Chess Coordinator, Mr Herne, Mrs Brown for her consistent organisation, parents that aided in barbecues before games and every player that participated to put Terrace Chess on the map.

Save the Date - Casino Royale

If you have ever wanted to play Baccarat with James Bond or share a martini with Vesper Lund, or maybe having a chat with M or Le Chiffre is more your style, keep your diaries free for this year’s Terrace Jazz Night on Friday 26 October to be held underground at the Spring Hill Reservoir.

Support Group Meetings  

Part of the success of our Cultural activities can be traced to our Support Groups.  If you would like to be involved, meetings are outlined in the College calendar and on the App.  
Terrace Performing Arts – Tuesday 16 October, 5.30pm in the Callan Centre
Debating Support Group – Tuesday 16 October, 5.30pm in the Founders’ Room

Director of Music | Acting Director, Mr Jan Hewerdine

A perusal of the calendar dates below will show that we have a number of engagements in Term 4. Please consult the College App for more details as they come to hand and please respond promptly to invites sent to the Parent Lounge.

In Week 1 on Thursday 11 October, we have our Chamber Music concert starting at 6pm in Waterford Place. This concert provides the opportunity for soloists and smaller ensembles to showcase in a more intimate concert setting. Families of participants, please sign on via Parent Lounge.

All musicians in Years 5 and 6 classroom Music, the Red and Black Concert Bands, Callan Red and Black Strings have all been asked to commit to memory the music to Carmina Burana. We ask families to encourage the boys to work on this at home. The results will be well worth the effort when we combine these musicians with the Celebration of Excellence Orchestra and Choir.

Talkin’ Jazz will be holding a performance workshop, for interested students, at the Brisbane Jazz Club during the September school holidays. This is always an exciting opportunity for those who have a strong grasp of their instrument and are interested in learning more about jazz. More information can be found by clicking here.

Please check the Terrace App and Parent Lounge regularly as this is where information regarding various events (see the list below) will now be published. As events are approved and posted to the Parent Lounge, you will be sent an email advising the name of the event, including the Event Memo, to check and you will be required to give a response regarding attendance.

Director of Sport | Mr Damian Wright


Thank you to all the families that made the trip up to TGS on Saturday for the final round of fixtures for the Basketball and Rugby programs.

The Terrace boys finished their respective seasons off well with both the Basketball and Rugby programs dominating the day across all age levels. The Basketball program won seven of the eight rounds through the season and the Rugby program won six rounds with one round drawn. Well done to the program coordinators Mr Sam Mackinnon and Mr Tyron Mandrusiak for their drive and vision and to Head coaches Mr Matthew Hamilton-Smith and Mr Tom Barker for their commitment and passion.

Thanks also to the coaches in both programs and to those teams that recognised these young men who gave their time and provided a small gift on the day to say thank you for the season.

The Support Groups and the parents underpin the success of these programs and they have been strong this year and have provided the necessary groundwork to keep the day’s activities running and providing community to all.  Thank you to all parents who are involved, but particularly the leaders of these two groups Mr Damian Hearne and Mr Mick Mullins. 

To the young men of Year 12, thank you for your efforts this year and through the many years of representing the College. Results are one measure, but spirit and pride are the true test of the season. Thank you and I hope you have enjoyed yourselves.

For the record, the Basketball Program finished in second position overall as a program, with the 1st V finishing in sixth place. Congratulations to IGS on winning the premiership in 1st V Basketball.

The Rugby program also finished in second position overall as a program and the Gregory Terrace 1st XV finished in seventh position. Congratulations to NC on winning the 1st XV premiership. 

Track and Field 

The sporting season is by no means over for 2018, with the opportunity for the boys to finish the season strongly with the Track and Field Championships in Week 4 of Term 4. Focus during Terms 2 and 3 is heavily on the large team sports of Football, Rugby and Basketball, but the Track and Field boys have been consistent and working hard to improve their skills.

There is still an opportunity for boys to put their hands up and engage in Track and Field.

Previously, where boys were busy with other activities, now is the time to be engaged in sprinting, hurdling, throwing and jumping. If you have finished Basketball and Rugby, there are two weeks of holiday training available to you and four weeks of Track and Field in Term 4.

Do not leave it to the last minute to become involved.

There are a lot of boys that are needed from Rugby and Basketball to help the College out in the Under 16 and Open age levels. Finish the year well and participate to the end.

TLG meeting 17 September

On Monday 17 September, we had the end of term TLG meeting in the Founders’ Room, the minutes of which will be emailed to those on our mailing list. Dr Carroll kindly gave us an update on staffing matters, the College’s NAPLAN outcomes and updates on the construction work. Mrs Jo Evans presented her wrap up from Terralicious ’18 with recommendations on future events like this. She was also able to confirm that through the incredible generosity of our families, we ended up raising $55 000 towards The Conor Tweedy campaign and for improvements to the sick room. Astounding and most appreciated. Thank you everyone for your individual efforts to make this possible. We are currently discussing the final allocation and will advise once this has been decided. 

The next TLG meeting is the AGM which is to be on at 7.30am on Monday 29 October (Week 4) in the College Museum and refreshments offered afterwards in the Founders’ Room. All are welcome.

Care and concern

It has been some weeks since the Food Tidings meal roster was set up for Conor Tweedy and his family. I have recently received a few enquiries looking for reminders on how to find the link and details of delivery. Here is the link to Food Tidings for your convenience. The meals are scheduled until the end of October. We will be sure to advise the community if there is to be an extension of this support. I know there are many people who would be happy to have the chance to continue this. 

Athletics Carnival

Friday 12 October, the first Friday of Term 4, is the Inter-House Athletics Carnival at Tennyson. Planning is underway for a terrific offering in the canteen, so rest assured your chaps will be well fed and watered. Please sign on via this link to assist on the day. In addition to the food and service for our boys, we will also be preparing lunches for 160 of our dedicated staff and 100 afternoon teas for our athletes travelling to TSS at the completion of the carnival at Tennyson. In other words, we will need many hands indeed, so please signup if you are able.
