This statue of St Joseph the Worker commemorates the life of Craig Ronald Andrews, an outstanding Terracian who joined the College in Year 8 in 1975. Towards the end of his school years, he had to deal with very serious medical issues, but with great determination successfully completed Year 12 in 1979, gaining the highest possible matriculation score.
Craig was a very capable student who was well respected by all who knew him. He was highly esteemed by the Terrace staff and his fellow students. His academic achievements and awards indicated that he was on track to fulfil his dream of a career in the life-enhancing area of medical research. He exemplified the Terrace ideal of the student who endeavours to integrate ‘knowledge, humility, and wisdom’ into his approach to life, showing a maturity beyond his years, especially in the way he faced his challenging medical situation. The courage and the maturity he showed in dealing with this had a profound influence on his classmates.
We give thanks for his life and rejoice to have had him here at Terrace with us, even as we mourn his death.
