Dean of Students | Mr Damien Cuddihy

I would like to wish all members of our Terrace Family a happy and safe break. I hope you get the opportunity to break from the regular school routines, even if it just allows you to be a little slower out of bed in the morning. Term 3 is always a busy term at a demanding time of the year. Many thanks to the various parent Support Groups who do so much to assist the smooth running of programs this term. The College is certainly very appreciative of this support from the parent community.

This evening the College hosts the Year 12 Formal at the Brisbane Convention Centre. It is always a pleasure to share the evening with this group of young men and their partners. One of the many rewarding moments in the teaching profession is watching the boys grow into young men over the years. The formal is undoubtedly one of those milestone moments. Thank you to Mrs Jo Tarlington for her tireless efforts in organising the event.

As usual, we ask that the boys return to the College with an appropriate haircut on the first day back for Term 4. The two areas that students need to pay particular attention to is that haircuts are blended on the sides, and that hair can’t be pulled down over the eyebrows. Boys that just get the bare minimum cut off when they return to school often need another cut by halfway through the term. Other issues that assist in establishing a productive tone at the College are the use of the Terrace school bags, appropriate socks and wearing the correct sports uniform during HPE classes (House shirt and black shorts). In addition, the hat remains a compulsory part of the uniform as students travel to and from the College every day.

Finally, I would again like to take this opportunity to wish all our families a happy and safe time during the Term 3 break, and I look forward to seeing everyone again in Term 4.
