Principal’s Message | Dr Michael Carroll

Dear members of the Terrace Family,

Exam time is upon us, with students across all year levels currently involved in their Term 2 exams.  The exam block will continue until the last day of term, Friday 18 June.  The day will finish with an end of term liturgy and students in Years 5-10 will be dismissed at 3.00 pm.  Year 11 students will be completing their exam block and are not required at the liturgy.  Year 12 students will be dismissed at lunch to allow them to support the Football matches.  Separate information about these arrangements will be sent to parents shortly. 

The GPS Term 2 season will also finish on Friday 18 June at Tennyson.  Unfortunately, not all teams will be playing.  The fixtures are limited to the First XI at 1.15 pm and the 7A, 8A, 9A, 10A, 11A and 2nd XI at 3.00 pm.  There will be a supporter bus leaving at 3.00pm, and the Football end of season function will commence at 4.30 pm.  Only the First IV will be playing tennis in the final fixture, with their games commencing at Victoria Park at 10.30 am.  I wish to acknowledge and thank all of the Football and Tennis staff, coaches and supporters for what has been a successful and welcomed return to school sport.  Well done to everyone involved in both programs.

Tomorrow the TLG Terralicious '21 Fashion Parade will occur in the RNA Pavilion.  It will be a wonderful day and an enormous amount of effort has gone into preparing for the parade.  With so many events cancelled last year, it is tremendous that we can again stage events such as the Fashion Parade.  I am sure that a good time will be had by all, and guest staff models may even make an appearance on the runway.

As we near the end of another busy and productive term, I thank families for their ongoing support.  The continuing strong sense of partnership is a key factor in ensuring that Terrace provides a high-quality Catholic Education in the Edmund Rice Tradition.

Finally this week, I encourage all students to use the coming days to prepare well for their exams and ensure they get adequate sleep leading into them as well.  Good Luck.

Have a great week.

God Bless.

Deputy Principal | Mr Damien Fall

On Wednesday of this week, we celebrated School Officer Day. This was an opportunity to say thank you to the non-teaching staff who make such a significant contribution to the smooth running of the College. The College is a big and complex organisation, and hence, we employ in excess of 100 staff to complete the myriad of tasks outside of what takes place in the classroom. Roles include, but are not limited to, grounds and maintenance, cleaning, sick bay, administration across all campuses, finance, book hire, communications, Terrace shop, compliance, Human Resources, sport and culture. Without the efforts of these wonderful people, the College simply would not be the success it is. On behalf of all in the Terrace Family, I pass on sincere thanks to the dedicated non-teaching staff who go about their roles with efficiency and minimal fuss. I hope that Wednesday gave them a sense of their value without our school.

With just over a week remaining in the term, the eyes of our teaching staff turn towards the all-important assessment, marking and reporting period. Teachers find this period especially busy, with tight timelines creating stress around this process. There is also the ever-present anxiety that teachers feel on behalf of their students. Every teacher holds high hopes that their students have benefitted from their teaching and that their academic results are strong. I hope that this important time yields great outcomes for our young men.

Next term, we are scheduled to conduct our next round of Parent/Teacher/Student Interviews. In planning these interviews, consideration has been given to survey feedback supplied by teaching staff and parents/caregivers. The themes that arise include:

  • Online interviews remain popular with staff and families because of their convenience and effectiveness.
  • The drawbacks of online interviews are the difficulty with viewing student assessment and the lack of direct human interaction.
  • A significant number of parents/caregivers reported they would like to have both online and face to face interviews available.

Considering the above information, the next round of interviews will be conducted as follows:

Monday 12 July, 11.30am - 5.30pm | All interviews conducted via Teams online
Wednesday 21 July, 3.30 - 7pm | All interviews conducted face to face

Details about interviews will be communicated home when reports are released. It is hoped that the model proposed above will provide teachers and families with what they need to ensure students receive quality feedback about how they might continue to find academic improvement. My best wishes to all for the busy days ahead.

Have a yarn with an Elder

Founded in 2008, The Queensland Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Foundation (QATSIF), works to provide Indigenous students in Queensland with increased access to education through scholarships and support. QATSIF, along with the Australian Catholic University, launched a new initiative for Queensland secondary students earlier this year called ‘Yarning with our Elders’. The aim was to connect students with their cultural heritage and listen to stories from their Elders.

Yarning with our Elders involved school students recording stories and pieces of wisdom from Elders. QATSIF hoped this program would open that first door to more conversations and provide a better connection between students and their Elders. These conversations of Dreamtime stories and local history are vastly important for ensuring their culture is continued in future generations.

Michael Nayler from QATSIF said “there are lots of families that haven’t been able to connect with Elders that are in community, and that can sometimes be quite lonely as well…particularly during COVID time, that’s got even tougher. This is a lovely opportunity for Elders to reconnect with family…and to have their stories respected and heard.”

Year 8 Windsor student, Tawhiti Barr, participated in this program and connected with the Pumicestone Indigenous Education and Employment Council. His participation was recognised with a special certificate at the Windsor’s House assembly last week. Well done Tawhiti for all of your efforts in this program. 

Universal Man

Universal Man is a community of men who want to be more, do more and take responsibility for their lives to leave a better world for all. This program is built upon five core pillars of Know Thyself; Grow Thyself; Brotherhood; Raising up Authentic Men (and fathers); and Living Your Mission.

Long time friend of the College and Christian Brother, Br Damien Price, and his colleagues facilitate several Universal Man camps each year, where young men share their story and challenges and learn new frameworks and skills to help navigate life’s many challenges.

  • Queensland: St Joseph’s College Camp Site, Maroon (10 - 12 September 2021)
  • Victoria: St Bernard’s College Camp Site, Great Ocean Road, Lorne, (8 -10 October 2021)

Universal Man is a not for profit, non-religious group. More information plus regular podcasts can be found on the Universal Man website at

World Environment Day

I want to finish by acknowledging World Environment Day last Saturday. “This is our moment. We cannot turn back time. But we can grow trees, green our cities, rewild our gardens, change our diets and clean up rivers and coasts. We are the generation that can make peace with nature. Let’s get active, not anxious. Let’s be bold, not timid” (World Environment Day, 2021). 

Living God,
You reveal your great love through the beauty of Nature.
Help us to love and respect our world.
May we be ‘seeds’ for growth, raising awareness of the Sacred,
and teaching all to see and treasure your print in the gift of Creation.
We ask this through our Lord Jesus Christ, Your Son,
who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
God forever and ever. Amen.

Live Jesus in our Hearts…Forever
St Joseph…Pray for us

Dean of Students | Mr Damien Cuddihy

Thank you for your response to the vaping letter sent out during the week. I had several fantastic conversations at Tennyson on Saturday, which suggests that our community is starting to develop an understanding of this reasonably new trend. The common theme was that the letter acted as a timely stimulus to have a conversation with your sons during the week. I know many of you were quite surprised to hear how prevalent vaping is amongst the community.

During the week, I listened to a podcast on The Universal Man called 'Difficult Conversations'. Whilst asking your son about the vaping letter that I sent out is not an overly difficult one, we all have topics within our households that are difficult to bring up for various reasons. In the podcast, Br Damien Price (affectionately known as Pricey) speaks about the need to adopt the approach of ‘seeking to understand’ the issue. It is an approach that hopefully encourages our children to take control of the conversation. As parents and caregivers, we will not have the answers and it is crucial to shift the power over to them. In return, they are more likely to respect, value, and most importantly respond positively to the issue. As parents and caregivers, particularly with sons in the younger grades, we need to work towards narrowing the conversation to “what are you going to do when you’re offered a vape?”. For many boys, the opportunity to try vaping will arise very quickly and often catch them quite off guard. Possibly it is down at Southbank on a Sunday with friends, down the park at a birthday party or in the Queen Street Mall on a Friday afternoon. Deep down they’ll be thinking ‘no’, but in the pressure of the moment when they are feeling exposed the answer will often be ‘yes’. They need to be prepared for this moment.

As we approach the final week of the semester, the focus is very much on exams. Year 11 students commenced their exam block on Wednesday this week. For the remainder of the term, they are only required to be at the College when they have an exam. Year 11 students need to be punctual, well presented and utilise their time effectively. Year 12 students are required at school every day and whilst there are some exams during this period, they will continue with normal classes until the end of term. For Year 12 students only, the term will conclude on Friday 18 June at 12.35pm. This will give them the opportunity to support both the 1st IV Tennis and 1st XI Football teams after lunch, if they wish. All other students (Years 5 to 10) will finish at the usual time of 3.10pm. I wish all students well at this busy time and encourage them to give their best. Students are still expected to meet their co-curricular commitments for the final two GPS rounds of the term. 

Dean of Studies | Mr Mason Hellyer

The University of Queensland / Queensland Association of Mathematics Teachers Problem Solving Cup concluded recently. Terrace had strong representation at the Cup, and I am proud to announce the following students who have attained excellent results:

  • Year 7 – Asher Wagner – Second
  • Year 7 – Colin Lamb – Commendation
  • Year 8 – Cooper Dooley – High Commendation
  • Year 8 – Rehan De Livera – Commendation
  • Year 9 – Hayden Sharpe – Third
  • Year 9 – Matthew Rodighiero – Commendation
  • Year 11 – Ryan Wong - First

This week has seen the commencement of exams for students and already I have been witness to great dedication by many students to produce their best outcomes. I continue to be inspired by the planning, preparation and thought that many students make towards their academic outcomes. However, examination success is attained through not only knowledge retention, recall and execution of skills, but also via exam management and self-care.

All students have been issued with copies of the exam schedule. Copies can be obtained from student services, the App or downloaded from Moodle. These timetables are a necessary part of a strategic revision plan. This week and next week’s challenge is to ensure that our boys exhibit perseverance in their preparation and commitment until the completion of their final exam. Our aim is for each and every student to finish the term knowing that he has given his best, whatever that outcome may be.

Ultimately, the key to good performance is preparation – It’s still not too late to be prepared. Therefore, when your son is feeling the pressure of exams here are some hints that to shared with them:

  • Be prepared. Work backwards from your exam date to plan when you will prepare. Don’t just leave it for the night before.
  • Complete all of the revision sheets
  • Use the subject checklist to go back through the content you have covered
  • Test yourself:

   - use flashcards
   - do as many practice questions as possible
   - mind dump – close your notes and recall everything you can in your own words

  • Continue to exercise and eat well. Drink plenty of water and stay hydrated.
  • Have a good sleep the night before, be well-rested
  • Go back over your study notes before the exam. Don’t engage in speculative talk.
  • It’s OK to be nervous, in fact, it's normal. Your mates may not obviously show it, but they are just as nervous as you. Feeling nervous is your body’s way of getting ready.
  • Walk into the exam with confidence – you have done the work, now is the time to show it!

All the best for the next week.

QDU results
We have proud to announce from 14 teams in the 2021 QDU competition, Terrace will have ten in the finals!  This is great news and shows the strength of our teams and coaches as well as our program as a whole.
The draw for the finals has yet to be released.  Almost every Wednesday night for the first seven weeks of next term will have one or more Terrace Debating teams competing.  We wish all our students and coaches clarity of thought and strength of commitment as we enter this phase of the QDU Debating competition.

Junior QDU
Our youngest Terrace Debaters started the Junior QDU Debating competition this week.  As this is a separate competition from the GPS Debating competition that runs in Term 1, most of these young men have not debated prior to this term.  This round-robin competition runs for four rounds, for the duration of the term.  We wish them well.

Interschool Debating Challenge
The annual All Hallows’ v Terrace Debate was held this week at All Hallows'. The Dethlefs-McMillan Trophy has been established to provide a platform to discuss youth social issues and as such we offer our thanks to the Youth Advocacy Centre who donated the trophy. 
Congratulations to the ladies from All Hallows' who retained the Cup.

House Choir

As mentioned last week, the House Choir competition will be held at the Pat Rafter Arena on 23 July.  This event is a great all-College event with literally thousands of people in attendance.  In order to ensure everything runs smoothly, we require volunteers who are able to help behind the scenes.  If you are able to assist, please click the link here.  One of the members of our Terrace Performing Arts will be in touch with you to explain your role.  Thank you in advance for stepping up to help at this large event.
To help you with deciding when you will volunteer your time, please see the House order list below.  The first House performs at 6.40pm and then every ten minutes thereafter.

House order
The House order for this year’s event is as follows:

  1. Magee
  2. Buckley
  3. Kearney
  4. Treacy 
  5. Mahoney
  6. Barrett
  7. Reidy
  8. Xavier
  9. Windsor


Norman Clarke Concert
It was with regret that the Norman Clarke concert was postponed from Last Sunday.  Unfortunately, building works at Villanova College meant we were not able to hold our event as scheduled.  However, we have booked in a new date – Sunday 18 July.  All Terrace Music families would have received Event Memos and notification via Parent Lounge and the Terrace App.  Please ensure you follow the process required for your attendance.
This is an important event for our musicians as it not only gives us a chance to perform in a formal, concert setting.  It also gives us the opportunity to give back, musically, to our benefactor, Mr Norman Clarke.

Ensembles at Terrace Sport
It has been our great pleasure to join the Terrace Sport community this season and once again perform at select sporting rounds.  Congratulations to our Pep Band who performed during halftime at the First XI Football game last week.
Next term will see our Sousaphone Ensemble playing at the Basketball and our Drumline front and centre during Rugby games.

QCMF Workshop and recordings 
As mentioned in previous newsletters, the QCMF competition is online this year.  Each Terrace musician has been sent a workshop and recording schedule.  This is also available for all families on the Terrace App. Please ensure all students are aware of their workshop and performance time. If there are any issues, please speak with your Ensemble Director or Director of Music as soon as possible.

Support Group meetings

The next DSG and TPA meetings will be held on Tuesday 14 September. Should you wish to contact the Debating Support Group, please email: (Ms Nicole Quinn) or the Terrace Performing Arts, please email: (Ms Jenny Barends).

Staying in touch 

To keep in touch with all things Cultural, we suggest you download the Terrace App and follow us on social media to ensure you don’t miss anything.   If you have any photographs or videos that you would like to share, please tag us.

What a Wonderful World

With World Environment Day celebrated this week, I am reminded of Louis Armstrong’s song What A Wonderful World, released back in September 1967, I ponder how societies perspectives have changed since this was composed. Reflecting on the lyrics, I encourage our Gentlemen of Terrace to take a moment to reflect on what is important to them, I encourage each of them to fully immerse themselves in the abundance of experiences here at the College, and importantly, give thanks for the opportunities afforded to them.

I see trees of green
Red roses too
I see them bloom
For me and you
And I think to myself
What a wonderful world
I see skies of blue
And clouds of white
The bright blessed day
The dark sacred night
And I think to myself
What a wonderful world
The colours of the rainbow
So pretty in the sky
Are also on the faces
Of people going by
I see friends shaking hands
Saying how do you do
They're really saying I love you

Br Barry Buckley AM Breakfast

Well done to all students in the Terrace String Ensemble who performed for the Br Buckley Breakfast last Friday morning. The boys were true Gentlemen of Terrace, particuarly in the way they performed and conducted themselves.

Pep Band

Congratulations to all boys who performed as part of our Pep Band last Saturday at Tennyson. From the formation of the tunnel for our 1st XI Football team, to their halftime performance of Loui, Loui and Party Rock Anthem, all boys should be immensely proud of the way they represented the College.

The Weekly Wrap


In Round 7 we hosted Brisbane Grammar School in what is our last full home fixture of the season. It was a fantastic day with 41 games being played across Tennyson. There were so many close games across the day. With minutes to go the 6As were behind 2-1, only to score 2 late goals to win the game 3-2. The 11Es continue to run wild this season, recording a 6-0 win to remain undefeated and yet to even concede a goal. The College finished with 15 wins, 20 losses and 6 draws.

In the First XI, Will Dent scored first with a penalty conversion, continuing his dazzling form. Will Dent, Marcus De Rous and Rhys Gray then combined for a brilliant goal from the latter to extend the lead. Grammar battled hard after halftime, and their efforts earned them a goal. They were confident, drawing level not long after. Fortunately for the College, Will Dent scored on the last kick of the game to secure victory.  

This weekend we head to Churchie to conclude the GPS Football season for a large number of our teams. A reminder Round 9 is on Friday 18 June and will only have the following teams taking part: 7A, 8A, 9A, 10A, 11A, 2nd XI and 1st XI.


On Saturday, the Terrace Gymnastics team competed at the Foundation Cup at Brisbane Grammar School. Following some excellent results at the lead-up meets, our athletes looked poised to take to the competition floor and showcase their commitment, hard work, and dedication throughout the semester.

Our Division 3 gymnasts were first up for the day, and with the majority of athletes competing at their respective level for the first time, nerves were high. However, after some solid routines in the first rotation (rings & high bar), our athletes composed themselves and set their minds to the task at hand. Throughout the next four apparatus, the team displayed great camaraderie as they supported one another, as well as all athletes competing on the day. The team put up several personal bests and with this effort put us neck and neck with BBC and TSS moving into our last two apparatus (parallel bars and pommel), as we fought for second place in the division. 

Knowing we needed some large scores to finish the competition, our athletes remained composed and set to work, with William Fletcher setting the standard with a score of 9.6 on parallel bars. Unfortunately, in the end TSS and BBC had some excellent last apparatus and pipped us; therefore, the team finished the Division in 4th place. However, special mention goes to Willliam Fletcher who individually finished 11th overall and finished 1st on parallel bars, 6th on rings, and 5th on vault. Furthermore, to Hugh Barret for individually finishing 12th overall and finished 6thon pommel. 

Division 3 Team: Hugh Barrett, William Fletcher, Connor Gleeson, Oliver Marriott, Harry Hislop, Zach Vivian, Angus Connor, and Martin Fang.

Next up our Division 2 gymnasts took to the competition floor. They started strong, setting the bar high for Division 2 rings. This dominance continued throughout the remainder of the competition as both Ed and Anton fought for placings on each apparatus. However, due to only two GT athletes competing in the division and three scores counting to the total, we finished the competition in 3rd place. However, Ed and Anton finished individually 3rd and 2nd overall, respectively, which is a tremendous achievement given the strong competition from BBC, TSS and BGS. Furthermore, Ed finished 4th on floor, 1st on rings, 2nd on parallel bar, and 5th on high bar. Whilst Anton finished 2nd on floor, 2nd on rings, and 4th on parallel bars and highbar. 

Division 2 Team: Anton Fang and Edward Fletcher

At the conclusion of the day, GT finished 4th, with BGS still holding a firm grasp on the top spot. However, after most of the team graduating in 2020, the program shows great promise moving into 2022. We now look to upcoming competitions at State and National Clubs this holiday period, as our athletes are set to compete with the best in Queensland and Australia.

Thank you, Hugh Barrett, William Fletcher, Connor Gleeson, Oliver Marriott, Harry Hislop, Martin Fang, Anton Fang and Edward Fletcher for supporting the team before and after their competitions. Furthermore, thank you to the Terrace Gymnastics Support Group for the continual assistance in making Terrace gymnastics an excellent experience for all those involved. Lastly thank you to Mr Tony McGahan and Dr Michael Carroll for their continual support of Terrace Gymnastics. 

Personally, I would like to thank all the boys for attending, I am extremely proud of your efforts as the competition standard proves to be continually rising amongst all schools and I look forward to where gymnastics will take you in the future. 

Want to join Terrace Gymnastics?

The Gymnastics program is held at Brisbane Boys' College (BBC) and is open to any boys from Gregory Terrace Years 5 to 12 wanting to join. There is a wonderful camaraderie between the Terrace and BBC boys involved, and the program provides an excellent opportunity to build strength and coordination, which can also greatly benefit other sports.  The boys are trained by coaches who are Olympic and Commonwealth Games athletes, including Josh Chambers, Jack Riek and Michael Tone.
For more details on the program please contact Josh Chambers

Captains’ Corner | Vice Captain, Luke Ames

Debating is one of the things that I live for; whether it be training, the debate itself or trying to convince my parents that 5 more minutes of Xbox is beneficial to my endeavours as a student (that argument never seems to work), it is something that I have grown to love. Tonight, the Year 5 debaters will enter the debating room for the first time. Alongside a couple of other seniors, it has been a pleasure to watch them all learn the ropes and develop over the past couple of weeks. As I sat in one training with the Year 5s, hearing one of them state a point that I would never have thought of in a million years, I found myself reminiscing about my first days as a debater.

Standing up for the first time with sweaty palms, everything seemed so foreign. I stumbled around, struggling to put an argument together. The Year 12 coaches seemed huge and knew everything. They gently pointed me in the right direction and instead of making the entire experience about how much better they were, they patiently waited for our squealing to die down before telling us what we should do next.

Over time, I started to gradually grow as a debater as a product of the exceptional coaches and mentors around me. One particular exercise that worked incredibly well was that coaches would only give us one piece of feedback to enact in the next debate, slowly and expertly assisting us in honing our craft.  This feedback, repeated time after time over many years has helped me to slowly and gradually improve.

Success is often about gradually improving. It is a gradual and often painful process (losing is always hard – and as a boy I often try to make it the referee’s fault). Importantly, I have never done it alone.  We are surrounded by mates, teachers, coaches and parents who not only want us to succeed but are more than willing to help – we just need to ask.

How each of us defines success will be different. Passing maths, given the very limited study throughout the term might be success for some, improving on last term’s result might be a success for others. Having fun with your mates, despite losing every football game 0-10 might be a success for some, executing a perfect set-piece might be a success for others. 

As we charge head-first into exams and the final weeks of sport, I encourage all of us to define our own version of success.  Success is a process, not a destination. It is that next step. It is being the best you can be.  It is reaching out to those around you for help.

For me, this week success will simply be watching with pride as the brave Year 5 debaters stand up for the first time, knowing they have taken that next step to be the best that they can be and that in some small way, I will have passed on my love of debating to the next generation of Terracians.

Answer the Call to define your own version of success.

Inaugural Back Red & Black sponsors

As we approach the end of Term 2, it is a great time to thank all those members of the Terrace Family, and beyond, who got behind Back Red & Black so decisively this year. 

We have met our 2021 target of 25 sponsors!

Those who step up first to support a new program are a very special group of people. People who know that to make a success of anything, you have to get started, take a bit of a risk, and step into the unknown. 

The leadership of our inaugural Back Red & Black supporters has given this program the best possible start. Their feedback has been taken on board and visibility for BR&B sponsors much enhanced. We expect to grow to 50 sponsors next year as the program evolves and expands to encompass all Terrace Sports and Terrace Culture in 2022.

Terrace is very grateful for your support. In a climate of decreasing government funding, challenges such as COVID-19, and an increasingly competitive schooling system, your support ensures all students participating in extra-curricular activities get access to the best possible facilities, equipment, coaching, and resources.
