Principal’s Message | Dr Michael Carroll

Dear Members of the Terrace Family,

It is hard to believe, but the end of Term 1 is upon us and we prepare for the Easter break.  My thanks to the staff, students and parents for all that you have done to ensure Term 1 has been successful.  I particularly congratulate those young men who began their journey at Terrace this year.  I am sure that it has been a busy and full term; however, I compliment you on how positively you have conducted yourselves and grown to be Terrace Gentlemen.

Last Saturday, the final rounds of Cricket and Volleyball took place.  This completed a very busy and successful term of GPS sport.  I thank all coordinators and coaches across the various activities.  Thank you to the many parents and Support Group members who gave their time so generously.  

Congratulations to the many young men who participated in the various activities across the term.  Well done on how you represented Terrace and on how you performed.  Overall, the results were very good.  Terrace was placed third in GPS Debating, fourth in Rowing (1st VIII), fourth at Swimming, third at Cricket (1st XI) and second in Volleyball (1st VI).  Well done.

Easter is a significant time in the Church’s calendar as we celebrate the Death and Resurrection of Jesus.  Over the Easter period we are reminded of the importance of our Faith and that the Resurrection is central to our Catholic tradition. As a College Community, we will finish the Term with a simple but important Easter Liturgy.

During the Easter break there are a number of tours, training camps and clinics occurring in preparation for the upcoming seasons.  I thank those who have organised or are participating in these activities and wish all involved the very best.

I have no doubt that everyone is looking forward to the Easter break.  I hope the holiday period provides all members of the Terrace Family an opportunity to reflect, recharge and spend time with friends and family.  I wish you a happy and safe Easter and look forward to reconnecting in Term 2. A reminder that due to the Commonwealth Games, school will commence on Tuesday 17 April.

God Bless.
