Thanks for your support.
The 2017 Terrace Rugby Program is well underway and will once again see a large number of boys pulling on the red and black jersey.
The Rugby program is committed to offering a safe and well-structured environment with a focus on participation, enjoyment and the opportunity to learn. In doing so the program provides boys, coaches and referees with a strong framework for improvement and abundant opportunity to develop the key elements of rugby.
Thanks to all staff, Old Boys and parents for their generous support over the holiday period. The 1st XV, 2nd XV and 16A teams travelled to Coffs Harbour for a four day camp. The Under 15A squad travelled to the North Island of New Zealand experiencing all that the country has to offer on and off the field. The annual holiday clinics at Tennyson were a huge success with large numbers of boys in attendance. The holiday period was capped off with a round of games against BGS. The work over the holidays will lay a solid foundation for us to build from as we head into Term 3.
Congratulations to Harry Wilson on his selection in the Queensland Schoolboys 1 team. Harry was also handed the honour of captaincy. Ryan Gassman, Hoani Ford-Stevens and Byron Ralston with their election in Queensland 2. Will Kirk was named in the Combined States Schools team. All the boys travelled to Sydney to contest the National Schoolboys Championships. Harry Wilson was rewarded with selection in the Australian Schoolboys team for his outstanding performances.
Congratulations also to all boys who participated in the 2017 QJRU State Championships which were held at Albany Creek during the holidays. Terrace was well represented in all ages.

Trust the process! This was the call to arms by GT’s 1st V and Basketball Captain Adam Bauman at the College’s first assembly of the year and is an ethos that we hope permeates through the entire program. After the success of the A-program through Term 2 and the still ongoing Brothers Club season, the GT Basketball Program looks primed for another strong GPS season.
Record breaking! Another term used to describe the program by Director of Mr Sport Damian Wright as the sport achieves a record number 35 teams with over 340 boys strong. This increase in numbers, along with the tireless work of the coaching and support staff, looks set to prime GT basketball for another strong season.
Representing state and country! Coinciding with the improvement in the school’s Basketball program, there has been the rise in state and national representation. During the June-July holiday’s, Year 8 boys Max Mackinnon and Dom Hayes were a part of the Under 15 State Emerging side that toured and played games in the USA. During Week 1 of Term 3, Year 9 student David Eltima and Year 10 students Lachlan Blackburn and Quincee Fepulaei, represented Queensland at the Under 16 National Basketball Championships in Perth, with Lachlan being named captain of the team. Additionally Year 8 student, Geordan Papacostas and Year 9 student Ose Motuga have recently been drafted into Basketball Australia’s National Performance Program, which prepares young Australian athletes for future participation in junior and senior Nation teams. This is not only a testament to the quality of program, but also a nod to the boy’s tremendous work ethic and discipline to their craft.
Good luck this weekend to all Basketball teams, players and coaches, and good luck to the GT Chess and Rugby programs in their first round of fixtures against Nudgee College.
