College Dean | Mr Chris Ryan

As another busy term comes to an end, I take this opportunity to wish all of the Terrace Family a safe and relaxing break with their sons.

As another busy term comes to an end, I take this opportunity to wish all of the Terrace Family a safe and relaxing break with their sons. I never take for granted how blessed we are in this community, especially after the holidays when all boys and staff return to the school safe and sound. Enjoy this time.

School Officers' Day

During this week, we joined schools throughout Queensland in celebrating School Officers Day. The non-teaching component of our staff faculty is a highly skilled and generous group of people who contribute significantly to many aspects of school life. Their expertise, commitment and collaboration assist in the safe, efficient and productive running of Terrace on a daily basis and we thank them most sincerely for their contribution to this, and every year at Terrace.

Staff News

This week we have welcomed back Mrs Marie Allen, Assistant to the College Principal from her long service leave. I hope she was as happy to see us! Thank you to Mrs Cath Gooley for her contribution in acting in Mrs Allen’s role. Her presence in the Treacy Building will be missed but no doubt she will be back in her many voluntary roles within the Terrace Family.

As the term comes to a close, I take this opportunity to wish staff commencing some long service leave or leave after the break well for their time away. Best wishes to Mr Damien Fall, Mr David Giles, Mrs Mary Meadows, Mrs Loren Serafin-Huey and Mr Michael Wooldridge.
