Opening night

Good luck to all students in Madagascar Jr and the All Hallow’ School production of High School Musical.

View the Madagascar Jr sizzle here.

This sizzle had more views in the first 48 hours than ‘We Will Rock You’ which now has over 3.7K views. We are pleased to announce that we have now sold out all three shows. The amount of effort that goes into a production of this magnitude is immeasurable and we should be very proud of our students, parents and staff. Our performers are looking forward to showcasing their talents in the Edmund Rice Theatre tonight. Please remember to bring your tickets with you as all seats are allocated in the Theatre. Foyer drinks and finger food will be available from 5.30pm with doors opening at 6.10pm for a 6.30pm show.  Thank you to the TPA for their hospitality and a special thanks to our lead makeup artist Ms Nicole Ericksen and her crew from Academy of Makeup – Brisbane.

QDU Debating  

After a successful season for the GPS Competition, our debaters in Years 8 to 12 continue their participation in the QDU Secondary competition. These teams are currently halfway through the qualifying rounds of the competition. If teams win three or more of their debates, they are eligible for the finals which are held in Term 3. A note to teams that there are a number of postponed debates and a reminder to check their emails from Mr Stormonth regarding these. An updated version of the QDU Secondary draw is available via the College App. 

Our Years 5, 6 and 7 QDU teams will be commencing soon with the release of the QDU Primary and Junior Secondary competition draw to be announced soon. Coaches will be starting to contact teams to confirm training times.

We have a number of opportunities coming up for Terrace Debaters to participate in skills development this term. Firstly, we have our Debating Seminar on Tuesday 14 May from 3.30pm to 5pm. Secondly, we will be hosting our Terrace Debating Workshop for QDU Years 5, 6 and 7 students on Sunday 26 May from 9am to 1pm. More details regarding these will be released shortly.
