Principal’s Message | Dr Michael Carroll

Dear Members of the Terrace Family,

With the end of Term 2 imminent, I take this opportunity to thank you for all that you have done to support your son’s journey during Term 2.  The term has been a full one, and I am sure that you and your sons are looking forward to a break over the coming weeks. 

The staff will remain at school next week to finish marking and reports.  The reports will again be available electronically via Parent Lounge.  I will send a letter to all families next week and the Semester 1 reports will be available from 9am on Tuesday 3 July.  Details for the Term 3 Parent/Teacher interviews will also be included with these communications.

During the upcoming holidays, staff, students and parents will be involved in a number of tours, camps and clinics, including skiing, music, basketball and rugby.  My thanks to all involved with these programs.

The building program is progressing well and will continue over the holidays.  We are now starting to see some tangible progress.  As part of the current project, work is occurring in the Library.  Much of this is occurring over the holidays and should be concluded for the start of Term 3.

Mrs Sian Graham commences her maternity leave tomorrow.  We wish Sian all the best with the upcoming birth.  Sian’s classes will be covered by Mrs Susie Cooper and Ms Suzanne Black.  Mrs Julie Quinn returns at the start of Term 3.  I thank Mr Mason Hellyer for his efforts as Acting Dean of Studies during Term 2 and to Mr Rob Sweeper and Mr Devon Naeser for their acting roles during this term.

Term 3 commences on Monday 16 July.  Students are required to continue wearing their winter uniform, which includes the College blazer.  I would also ask parents to ensure their sons return to Term 3 in the correct uniform and with appropriate haircuts.

Finally, last week I spent time in Adelaide attending the annual EREA Principals’ Conference.  Held at Rostrevor College, the focus of the Conference was Principals’ Wellbeing.  While I absolutely love being the Principal of Terrace, it was interesting to learn that, statistically, I am in a profession that experiences high stress levels and burn out.  For this reason, our four keynote addresses were based on how to manage stress and improve wellbeing.  The first session was around how we can feed and nurture the three dimensions of our brain – our wild brain, emotional brain and smart brain.  Basically, it all hinges on our wild brain getting plenty of sleep, exercising regularly and eating healthily.  The second session looked more specifically at how we can reduce stress through some simple daily practices such as stretching, breathing slowly and most importantly being in relationships with others.  Our third session looked at how meditation and contemplative prayer can drastically reduce stress levels and increase the prevalence of personal and professional fulfilment.  Lastly, we were given insights into the habits of high achievers and how they maintain effectiveness in their work life while still enjoying personal wellbeing.  This helpful guidance and insight should hold me in good stead for the future.

I again thank you for all your support during Term 2 and wish all families a happy and safe holiday.  See you in Term 3.

God Bless,

Dr Michael Carroll
College Principal

Staff News

Congratulations to our College Publications Coordinator and Archives Manager, Ms Bianca Anderson on the occasion of her engagement to Matt Wagner. We wish them every happiness.

The staff community await the safe arrival of babies for the families of Mr Rob Sweeper (twins!), Mr Darren Collins and Mr Anthony Baruksopulo. We warmly congratulate these staff on the news of these impending arrivals.

A reminder that Mr Damien Hanley will be travelling home to Ireland over the break and is on leave for the first week and half of Term 3. We welcome Mr Peter Murdoch back to the College to look after Mr Hanley’s classes for this time.

Mrs Sian Graham is taking Semester 2, 2018 and Semester 1, 2019 maternity leave. We wish her well as she prepares for the arrival of her new baby. In Semester 2, we welcome Mrs Susie Cooper back to the College and to the Waterford campus.

Finally, we sincerely thank Mrs Judy Ariotti for her work as Acting Academic Coordinator while Mrs Jan Cameron has been on leave. We are blessed to have someone like Judy to fill in for this important role. It is great to report that Mrs Cameron is travelling very well after hip replacement surgery and we look forward to her return in Term 3.

Dean of Studies | Acting Dean, Mr Mason Hellyer

As we come to the end of the examination period it is important to take time over the upcoming holiday break to reflect upon the term. 

From Tuesday 3 July you will be able to access your son’s Semester 1 report via Parent Lounge. The results contained within this report will provide point in time data to indicate your son’s progress. This data is the starting point for discussions and reflection to occur regarding student progress.

Whilst the individual subject result is an important indicator, reflection of how the result was achieved is a much more powerful message. A strong result will reinforce a student’s work ethic or positive change to study habits. A disappointing result will highlight the need to modify existing work habits and work ethic. It is vitally important that these messages are explained and reinforced.

To support the discussion you will have with your son, Parent/Student/Teacher interviews will be held on 1 August and 8 August. These interviews are an opportunity to reflect on the Semester 1 result and to work with teaching staff to develop strategies to enhance academic performance. Booking times for these interviews will occur through Parent Lounge. Further information regarding this process will be sent next week and will also be available via the College App.

I will be finishing my acting role at the conclusion of this term, with Mrs Julie Quinn returning for the commencement of Term 3. I would like to thank the College Leadership Team and College staff for their support throughout the semester and especially the parents and students that I have worked with in this role.

Dean of Students | Mr Damien Fall

This week, I have included a link to an article from the New York Times addressing the growing global issue of gaming addiction.  Of note are two important points.  Firstly, we are told that the World Health Organisation is set to add ‘Gaming Disorder’ to its International Classification of Diseases.  This means that addiction to video games will become officially recognised as a medical condition.  We need to remember that the gaming industry is a multi-billion dollar juggernaut that invests heavily in designing products that create addiction.  Hence, the frustration that many parents have with their children over their use of games is also a battle with giant corporations that aim to get gamers hooked on their products.  There is evidence to suggest that gaming in moderation can be therapeutic for adolescents and that it is a legitimate ‘hobby’.  The issue is not with participation in gaming; rather, it is when usage becomes excessive that it has a negative impact.  It is no surprise that the gaming industry is less than impressed with the W.H.O. 

The second point to note is that the article quotes Mr Cam Adair from an online support company called Game Quitters.  Many of our parents will remember that Cam was at Terrace earlier this year and spoke to a number of students and parents about gaming addiction.  It is clear that Cam is held in high regard as an expert in the field and we look forward to an ongoing relationship with him.  Cam will return to work with us at Terrace early next year.  Please find the link to the article here.

One reason why Cam suggests kids are defensive when parents want to discuss their usage of games, is that we are unable to speak the language of gaming and are hence seen to have no idea what we are talking about.  Who would have thought it?  A second article I have included below, refers to the enormously popular game Fortnite and gives some excellent information and advice to parents.  One surprising piece of advice is to have a go at playing the game with your son.  Cam suggests that we have the best chance of conversing with our kids about gaming if we can demonstrate an understanding of what they play and why they enjoy it.  The article is well worth a read, particularly with the approach of holidays and the extra time that will become available to our students.  The article can be accessed here and I recommend investing a few minutes to grow your understanding of what is a very important topic.

We are at the end of a hectic term and I know that all in our community are ready for a break or at least a change of pace.  I wish everyone involved in holiday co-curricular programs and tours a safe and enjoyable time.  Thank you to our families for your support across Semester 1 as we endeavoured to help grow our Terrace Gentlemen.  I look forward to continuing the journey next term.

Dean of Identity | Mr Charles Brauer

The ‘other’ in ‘Brother’

“Clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience.” These are the words we will listen to as we give thanks for a Terrace education and another term together as a Terrace Family. Furthermore, these words will frame our exploration into the concept of being a ‘brother’ to one another.

If you have ever had the chance to walk alongside a Christian Brother you will have a close encounter with - compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience. Many of us who were taught by Christian Brothers would have many stories of how the Brothers were gentle, kind, humble and patient. It is not by coincidence that these virtues are not isolated to a few Christian Brothers, rather, they are personified by countless Christian Brothers. These virtues were brought to life because Christian Brothers responded to a call to serve others.

Day one as a Christian Brother begins with these words:

 “I consecrate myself to you, to procure your glory as far as lies in me, or what you require from me. I beg now to become a member of the Congregation of Christian Brothers of the Christian Schools of Ireland, founded under the protection of Jesus and his mother, Mary; and I promise that I will remain forever, in order to teach boys in any school to which I may be sent to my Superiors and to perform any other duties which may be assigned to me by them. I promise and vow that, with the Grace of God, I will observe them faithfully.”

These are the very words of the late and legendary Terrace Old Boy Br Vic Larkin, as he made his vows of becoming a Christian Brother in 1955 – a promise he enacted each and every day in a manner to be revered. For those of us baptised – I wonder where that candle got to – our parents engaged with a vow, a promise, of being people of Good News. People committed to serving others. 

Regulalry, we remind our young men of Terrace of their baptism, their vow, when we share the Good News of Terrace stories on the noticeboard, on social media platforms and in this very newsletter. In each of these Good News stories and in every associated photograph, there is always one common feature – people. There is always one common story – others.

Whilst being brother and sister to one another, let us not lose sight of the ‘other’ in ‘brother’.

Director of Music | Acting Director, Mr Jan Hewerdine

As the term draws to a close, I would like to address those undertaking external music examinations. Within the first two weeks of Term 3, many students will be sitting AMEB or similar, exams. The upcoming holidays provide a much needed opportunity for candidates to work on the various elements of these exams.  A regular practice regime is the most effective tool for gaining a credible result. No amount of lessons can substitute for organised, methodical and consistent practice. Success in music is calculated in the amount of hours of practice done. I encourage all candidates to prioritise your time and put greater effort into practicing ahead of other discretionary activities.

There was no assembly this week.

An event memo for the Celebration of Excellence Orchestra will coming soon. Although this is a Term 4 event, forward planning requires us to know well ahead of schedule if any musicians will not be present on the night. I will email respective members’ families soon.

Years 5 and 6 classroom Music students have received a new piece of music “Carmina Burana” which they must commit to memory. This will be used in the Celebration of Excellence early in Term 4. Please encourage the boys to start memorising this sooner rather than later. This will be further handed out to all Red and Black ensembles as well.

Please note below the expanded list of workshops for ensembles in the first week of holidays. We are seeking maximum attendance in preparation for the upcoming Queensland Catholic Music Festival.

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. Event Memos will also be available through the Terrace App in CultureMusic.

Director of Sport | Mr Damian Wright

Term 2 activities finished on Saturday in the last round of fixtures against TGS. Results across the board were very good on the day with Terrace winning the majority of fixtures in both Football and Tennis.

Congratulations to all boys on finishing off strongly in their respective teams – the seasons in both activities had many highlights.  For the record, the two flagship teams of the programs had good results for the year.

The 1st IV Tennis team worked through some very crucial injuries, but came out with a strong third place in the premiership. Well done. It was very gratifying to see our young men step up from the 2nds and place themselves under pressure to perform, and perform they did, winning the last two fixtures against IGS and TGS respectively.

The 1st XI Football team finished in fifth place, but with better execution they could easily have challenged for first place. Defensive lapses really hurt in the end and when the season wound up on Saturday the team was recognised as having scored more goals this year than all Terrace 1st XI teams for the last six years combined.  That is a great statistic. Goal scoring whiz Byron McLeod needs to be congratulated for scoring four hat tricks during the year for the 1st XI. Captain Noah Hitchcock was instrumental in the strong performances all season and the Year 12 boys were superb in their leadership.

The holiday break has numerous activities, camps and clinics available to all boys – primarily focused on Rugby and Basketball. Make yourself available for trials and compete. The season starts the first weekend back in Term 3 in an away game against BBC.

Track and Field will also have day clinic training sessions available in preparation for the championships in Term 4.

Please check the college App for holiday activities/opportunities. 

The Weekly Wrap

Football Wrap

What a way to finish the season with an eight goal thriller!  Luckily we scored four of them. It would have been better to win than share the points, but the result was reflective of our season…moments of brilliant Football interspersed with some of not so brilliant moments. 

Once again Byron McLeod was front and centre with his fourth hat trick of the season – a great effort for the 10 competitive matches we played. It was a day for celebrating the Year 12 players who will be leaving at the end of the year. As usual we were a little slow out of the blocks and had to scramble to recover from our own mistakes, but still managed to play good Football in possession and created some very good chances. It was no surprise that we were leading 2 nil at half-time. After the break it was end to end action and the goals flowed for both teams. All in all I think everyone was happy at the end. It was certainly great entertainment. 

I would like to take this opportunity to thank all who have been involved in the Football program this season. It has been a wonderful experience for me, but the final word has to be for the players. Thank you for your efforts, you proved you can play and were only really bested in one game. To the Year 12s, make the most of your opportunities. You are out in the real world next year so grab them with both hands…they don’t come around all that often. To the players back next year, let’s look forward to making the most of it and aim to better this season.

Tennis Wrap

The Terrace Tennis season of 2018 was completed on Saturday with an excellent day of tennis against Toowoomba Grammar School. The program, for the sixth time this year, had a winning day against the opposition. The sportsmanship on display by both schools is a credit to all involved. 

The Tennis program is able to cater for all abilities, and the product of 2018 was definitely an improvement from the years before and we hope to continue this improvement in 2019. The aim is to continue to provide opportunities for those who either wish to play socially with their mates like this year’s fourths and fifths teams in a participation program, or to cater for those striving to be the best they can in the performance side of the program. Tennis is a game for all and a game for life.

Our traditional tennis end of season break-up BBQ and trophy presentation at AMBI was held at the completion of the round on Saturday afternoon. This social event was well supported by the families involved in Terrace Tennis with over 200 people in attendance. The award winners were for the following

The program would like to take this opportunity to thank a few groups who have been integral in the success of the season. Firstly, the Terrace Tennis Support Group who volunteer their time, and work tirelessly behind the scenes to ensure that the program is well supported and continues to run in the right direction. The passion that this group shows for the game of tennis and the wellbeing of Terrace Tennis can’t be understated and we thank them for this. Secondly, the program would like to acknowledge and thank Ms Cerene Hughes who has been fantastic in helping the program behind the scenes. To Dr Carroll and the CLT and Mr Damian Wright, we thank you for your continued support of Tennis at the College and the countless hours you all contribute to the College.

The program would also like to thank the students who represented the College in the Tennis program. The efforts this year, commitment to both training and match play was described by those who know, as a significant improvement from years past. 

A big thank you to all the College coaches, led by Head Coach Mr Graeme Brimblecombe, who have been responsible for the smooth running of matches and general game day operations. Their knowledge of the game is equal to their enthusiasm in ensuring that each boy becomes the best tennis player that they can be, creating a great training environment at each individual session. 

Finally, we would like to acknowledge the parent group for their continued support of the program and their assistance of the boys during the season. Be it early morning starts at Victoria Park Courts or away games at Toowoomba, the support of your sons and flexibility with scheduling during the year has ensured that the boys can get the most out of the program. 

We hope your son has had a positive experience with playing tennis at the College and look forward to seeing him involved again in 2019.

Around the Courts

This week our 3rds, 4ths and 5ths played their final game for the red and black out at Ambiwerra against Toowoomba. Braving a cold morning, the boys had a slow start but improved in the second doubles, showing all the skills they had learned throughout the season. 

The 3rds won a hard-fought victory, capping off a great year with yet another win and while the 4ths couldn’t quite get across the line they soaked up all the fun in their final games for Terrace. 

Several Year 5 teams played out internal matches and matches against very strong Lifetime opposition. The games were closer than they looked and the day out at AMBI was a great learning experience for the new members of our Tennis community. A positive finish to the season for all teams, the boys already looking forward to returning next season.

At Coops the 10Cs, 10Ds, 9s, and 7Es played against Toowoomba Grammar School in what was overall a positive way to end the season. Our Terrace athletes continued to display great sportsmanship and were very eager to get on and compete in their matches. A big shout out to the all the boys for working with the coaches given the days’ time constraints.

The 7Es demonstrated great team spirit and on court intensity. The boys had a great win against Toowoomba’s 9Ds, making them undefeated for the season. 

Team of the Week – The mighty 7E team who defeated TGS 9D team -Will Kendall, Peter Kalos, Denis Sheahan, Liam Nguyen

1st IV Report v Toowoomba Grammar School

This year our final round of the season would be played against Toowoomba Grammar School.

On paper, this is a match we should win but with injuries and new younger players called into the team, the team of Bryce Robinson, Xavier Lim,Yosua Lumbanradja and Tom Brannigan all knew we had to be at our best and were desperate to finish the season on a high note.

The day once again started with all four singles matches. Tom was first finished with a 6-1, 6-1 result while Bryce and Xavier followed soon after with 6-2, 6-2 and 6-1, 6-4 wins. Yosua had to battle through his fist set winning it 6-4 before rolling through his second set 6-1.

Our doubles then followed and our boys were once again very strong, winning all four matches and only dropping one set. The final result of the day was GT 8-16-100 def TGS 0-1-42.

Congratulations to our 1st IV team members finishing third place this year. All boys involved should be proud of their efforts.

Terrace Library

The Terrace Library will be closed ALL DAY on the first two days of Term 3 - Monday 16 and Tuesday 17 July due to renovations. This includes before and after school.

Terrace Ladies Group

TLG Meeting

On Monday 18 June we had the end of term TLG meeting. Thank you to the ladies who came along and participated in our discussions. Thank you also to Dr Carroll who gave us a wonderful update on matters like the construction work, TLG funding proposals for the new building, ATAR progression and staff changes for next term, amongst other topics. I would also like to thank the ladies who presented reports on the Years 5-9 Mothers' High Tea, the year level social functions, and the update on the Terralicious planning. There are many people that enable TLG activities to be the success that they are, and we are all very grateful for their efforts and generosity of time. The minutes of the meeting will be emailed this week. 

Tennyson Canteen

Last Saturday we had our last home game for Football at Tennyson. It was a lovely day, starting with scores of hungry Toowoomba Grammar boys arriving by bus early in the morning. Thank you to everyone who came in to help at the canteen and BBQ pit on Saturday, and throughout the season this term. 

Next term we are looking forward to a busy schedule for Rugby. We are looking to improve our service on the big days, so please watch for news on how that will take shape and pitch in when you can.
