St Joseph's College, Gregory Terrace (Terrace), is a Catholic Day School for young men from Years 5 to 12, founded by the Christian Brothers. Terrace is one of the nine Great Public Schools (GPS) in Queensland and, founded in 1875, is among the oldest.
Our College has a long and rich history that now spans 145 years in the tradition of the Christian Brothers and their founder, Blessed Edmund Rice. Today the College is governed by Edmund Rice Education Australia.
Terrace has been nurtured by the Christian Brothers and their partnerships with lay staff and the wider Terrace Family. Our community is grateful for the vision, service and commitment of the Christian Brothers and we are proud of the thousands of Terracians who have contributed significantly to both Church and civil life locally, nationally and globally throughout our history.
Our College motto, Servire Deo Sapere or ‘To
Serve God is to be Wise’ articulates our commitment
to the formation of the ‘Terrace Gentleman’
to be a young man of faith and learning
who will make a difference through knowledge, humility and wisdom.
Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP)
The development of St Joseph College, Gregory Terrace’s Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) and its subsequent endorsement by Reconciliation Australia is a powerful recognition of our commitment to understanding and valuing the experience of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples. The RAP will guide our development of greater cultural awareness to build and encourage relationships between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and the Terrace community. Throughout this process, the College has reaffirmed its focus on maintaining collaborative and respectful partnerships; providing an inclusive and welcoming learning environment; and offering a quality and culturally enriching education for all young people.Reconciliation Action Plan | View Here
