Director of Sport | Mr Damian Wright

Dear Terrace Family,

Welcome to the 2018 school year. It will be a busy time for the boys with all that is on offer. The in-season activities are well and truly underway with the Rowing, Swimming, Cricket, and Volleyball seasons all heavily active over the December and January holiday periods. Thank you to the boys and their families for making yourselves available for the training sessions that were on offer, not to mention the tours to Perth, Adelaide, Melbourne, Grafton and Bundaberg.

This weekend is Round 1 of the GPS Round Robin competition, with Terrace competing against BBC.


Cricket and Volleyball will both be at split venues, so different year levels will be travelling to different venues. – check your team, venue and start time.


Welcome to the 2018 swimming season all new and returning swimmers. By signing up to Terrace Swimming you are now part of Rackley Swim Team and can attend squad training sessions (see timetable on the app). For those unsure where to start you only need to attend one of the junior sessions and the coaches will do an assessment.
