QDU Debating

Congratulations to our successful 10.1 team - George Bozikis, Declan Hackett, Cyril Mathews, Scott Moran and Alex Sullivan – on their win last in the Grand Final. After a long season, these young men ended their season in the best possible way.

With only Years 5-7 still debating in the QDU Junior competition, I would like to thank our staff and Old Boy coaches who have mentored our intermediate and Senior students throughout the year. We are very privileged to have our Senior students return to work with our younger students. If any of our Seniors would like to return to coach next year, please meet with Mr Stormonth before the end of term.


We have two teams through to the Youth Theatresports Grand Final after the win by our Senior team on Tuesday night. Best of luck to all our students who will compete in October in the final at La Boite Theatre. Tickets for the finals will be available soon.


Congratulations to Chess Champion Hughston Parle who has just been selected for the number 1 Board of the Australian U16 Chess team to compete in India.

Great Results from QCMF

Thank you to the 719 students who represented Terrace in 29 ensembles at the Queensland Catholic Schools Music Festival this weekend and a special thanks to the parents who really make this happen behind the scenes. Your support and encouragement of your children makes a large part of the success of the program.

Support Your Support Groups

Our Support Groups play a very important role at Terrace – helping in numerous ways. One way that we support them to support us is by purchasing the 2017/2018 Entertainment Book (please see the link to the end of the edition or click here). Also, if purchasing an Art Union ticket please remember to put the name of your chosen supporter group on the back. With 20% from every membership sold contributing to our fundraising goal.

Another way is to volunteer some time or baked goods to the All British Car Rally that is held at the Tennyson Playing Fields on Sunday 17 September. To volunteer, please click here.
