Principal’s Message | Dr Michael Carroll

Dear members of the Terrace Family,

The last couple of weeks have seen a lot happening at the College.  From Information Nights, the Induction Mass, Scholars’ Assembly and the start of the co-curricular seasons. Staff, parents and students have been very committed to ensuring the beginning of the year has been a positive one.  My thanks to all involved in the many activities and events over the last few weeks.  Together and in partnership, we have all ensured a positive start to the school year.

The Inter-House Swimming Carnival is scheduled for tomorrow.  This is the first of the hotly contested House activities for the year and is always a great day with plenty of enthusiasm and passion on display.  Details regarding times, etc. have been circulated already.  It is a regular school day, and all students are expected to be in attendance.

Last year, the College entered into negotiations to purchase a property at 184 St Pauls Terrace.  Purchase negotiations were successful, and settlement occurred a week ago.  The property is a significant one, including land of nearly 5500m2 and two large buildings.  Some preliminary discussions have occurred regarding how the College will use the property in both the short and longer term, with the Master Plan committee continuing to develop various options throughout the year.  At this point a few decisions have been made regarding its use.  Firstly, the College Gym will be relocated to one of the buildings.  The area set aside for the gym is a large space, allowing the gym to increase its current size and further develop its operations.  This will then make way for additional classrooms on the main campus.  The site will also be used for the provision of additional parking, with approximately 60 spaces being created.  There is also the potential for the creation of additional rooms for the College Music program.  However, no details have been finalised regarding the music areas, and further research and consultation will occur to investigate options.  

The new property creates many opportunities for the College and over time will become an integral part of our extended Spring Hill campus.  I will keep the community informed about this development via the Terrace News over the coming months.

Terrace has a long and proud history of strong academic performance.  Although many factors contribute to this academic success, the key factor is the strong work ethic of the students.  It is imperative, as the end of Week 3 approaches, that students are back into the routine of homework, revision and daily study .  By now Assessment calendars have been published, study timetable construction has been discussed in Formation classes, staff tutoring and Study Hall have commenced, and the routine of the College year has settled.  It is vital that the students have settled into a good academic routine.  As parents and caregivers, you can assist by talking with your sons about what assessment they have coming up, what work they are covering in class and by monitoring the time they are giving to their nightly homework and revision program.  

I believe that the other significant area where parents can support their sons is by establishing a productive study environment at home.  The removal/monitoring of distractions such as mobile phones and computers, the creation of quiet study space and regular ‘drop-ins’ or discussions about how things are going are all significant.  Sometimes as a parent these actions are not easy. However, consistently setting an expectation and connecting with your sons are key to supporting their academic journey.  If this aspect of your son’s journey at Terrace is not going as well as it should, I encourage you to connect with your son’s teachers or House Dean so that we can support your son in partnership.

Finally this week, I thank you for your attention to drop off and pick up time.  I continue to ask that we all show consideration for our neighbours.  Please minimise noise at early morning drop off by dropping on the school side of the street rather than the residential side – this is particularly important for early morning drop off.  Thank you for your ongoing support of this important aspect of our Spring Hill community responsibility. 

Have a great week.

God Bless.

Dr Michael Carroll

Deputy Principal | Mr Damien Fall

Recent days have seen many examples of the wonderful partnership that exists between the College and home. The value of this relationship cannot be underestimated. Last Friday at a packed UQ Centre, we saw a huge number of family members in attendance as we inducted the Senior class of 2020. Behind the scenes, parents of our current Year 11 students arranged and supplied the hospitality before and after the Mass. Archbishop Coleridge, in his homily, spoke of leadership as a form of self-sacrifice; Jesus is the ultimate example of such sacrifice. His Grace did an excellent job of connecting the concepts of sacrifice and leadership to the rather morbid story of John the Baptist losing his head. As a College, we are grateful for the many small (and sometimes large) sacrifices that our parents and caregivers regularly make to ensure the smooth running of the College and a memorable experience for our young men. 

Similarly, the Terrace journey is enhanced for the Terrace Family by the sacrifices our caring staff regularly make. On Wednesday evening, a large number of parents and caregivers accepted our invitation to spend a short time with their son’s PC Mentor. These meetings are a classic example of the student/staff/parent partnership that so greatly benefits all parties. Thank you to all for the sacrifices you make and for continuing to work with us.

This year has seen us welcome around a dozen new teaching staff to Terrace, and it has been my pleasure to work closely with the newest batch of Terrace educators. As it is for students, starting at Terrace as a teacher can be a daunting experience. Often, change causes us some discomfort as we learn new people, systems and processes. I have been pleased by the positive reports from our new teachers about the warm reception they have received from peers, students and their families. We look forward to the contribution of these teachers as they go about their important roles. 

The contribution of our teachers was summed up by 2019 College Dux James Hurst at this week’s Scholars’ Assembly. We were honoured by the presence of His Excellency, Governor of Queensland, Paul de Jersey, who heard James:

Every Tuesday and Thursday morning in the room next to GT125…. from about 7.45 there is math tutoring. There, teachers like Mr Covill, Ms Lather and Ms Meinecke, among others, selflessly give up their mornings to diligently assist anyone who walks through the doors. The teachers there don’t ask for thanks, nor let it stop them from staying back and helping after class, their patience seemed to be endless. This attitude is by no means limited to the Math Department; Tuesday and Thursday morning happens hundreds of times every week at Terrace, without which these 18 scholars wouldn’t be here with me. So, to our teachers, we say thank you.

Thank you to James for a nicely worded and fitting tribute to our teaching staff. All the best to everyone as we finish Week 3 of the term.

Dean of Studies | Mr Mason Hellyer

At the Scholars’ Assembly on Tuesday I had the great honour of speaking on behalf of our 19 OP1 recipients from last year. As I spoke about each of the young men, I was struck by the number of similarities evident in each of their academic journeys. While each student undoubtedly had natural academic talent, this talent was combined with a motivation, determination and a work ethic that ensured that their goals were achieved. Each of them recognised that:

• They had to set their goals and then planned to work toward them.
• They had to utilise all of their support networks – teachers, staff tutoring, study hall and study group, their mates, their parents and family.
• They did the small things – used their diary, logged their study hours, completed homework tasks.
• They consistently did the best that could, every day, at everything they did.

The above points are a simple enough formula and one that is proven. However, what distinguishes those who succeed, in any endeavour, is the self motivation to get the job done. A great example of this self motivation is Aymeric Morgan. Aymeric was deservedly awarded the Student Award on Tuesday, not just because of his improvement in his academic performance, but because of the way in which he instigated his improvement. He made a conscious decision to improve his academic outcomes and he worked hard toward achieving his goals. Aymeric made sure he did all the small things well (see above) and this should be the starting point for anyone who want to be the best they can be.

Ultimately it is up to each student to take responsibility for their own learning. However, the College is here to work with each student on their academic journey. There are a number of initiatives that students can access to assist with their study:

  1. Assessment calendars have been distributed to students to assist with their planning. By now a study plan should have been developed and being followed.
  2. Staff tutoring is available. The list of times and venues can be found on the College App.
  3. Study Group is available to Years 11 and 12 students every afternoon in 422 / 423 from 3.15 – 5.30pm and mornings from 7.30am.

Dean of Students | Mr Damien Cuddihy

A good friend of mine from school shared some photos of his property down near Hebel on the weekend. The paddocks are covered in water which was a far cry from what it looked like this time last year. He had been destocking for quite a while, and like many people in the bush, finding it quite difficult. It was just such a joy to feel the excitement in his messages and the chat that followed from our group. For many people in rural communities who have been lucky enough to receive rain recently, I am sure the impact will be significant on many levels. I shared this story this week with our Senior students during assembly. The most influential group in our school each year is the Senior cohort; they set the tone and drive the engagement of other students at many levels. Last Friday, we formally recognised all 238 Senior leaders at our Opening Mass at the University of Queensland. It was delightful to have the parents present to witness this important occasion. I remind all Seniors that leadership at Terrace is a form of service. It requires a commitment to others and an understanding of other-centred actions.

At the Parent Information evenings over the last two weeks, I have mentioned my concerns about the appropriate use of social media by our students.  It can be a difficult road to navigate for parents, but from my perspective, we have three options. Firstly, to hold off letting your son open accounts as long as possible. This is particularly important for students in Years 5, 6 and 7. Secondly, once you allow your son to use social media platforms to monitor the conversations that are occurring and provide guidance on the appropriate use of language and themes. Finally, if the monitoring ship has sailed, at the very least try to have conversations with your son about his online life. I realise that it is easier said than done, but I am aware that many parents have been able to position themselves well to be of influence, especially if they intervened early. 

All students are required to wear their HPE gear to school tomorrow for the Inter-House Swimming Carnival. While the canteen will be open at Centenary Pool, I would encourage students to bring their own lunch as the line can often be quite long and slow. Please remind your sons not to bring any valuables over to the pool and to leave them in the safety of their locker at school. Sunscreen will be available throughout the day, but all students are required to swim with a rashie and to wear a hat throughout the day. 

Finally, just a quick reminder to Year 8 families of the booking portal for the Father and Son night on Wednesday 19 February. The link to the registration page can be found on the Terrace App under notices, Year 8 Father and Son Event. The other important parent information session  we have coming up is the Boys and Gaming Evening with Cam Adair on Wednesday 4 March. Again, information can be found on the College App. 

Acting Dean of Identity | Mr Terry Thompson

Significant events

Last Friday saw our opening Mass and Year 12 Induction. We were fortunate to have Your Grace Archbishop Mark Coleridge leading the Terrace Family in this celebration. I always feel a sense of excitement with such an occasion. I remember my senior induction so vividly - the moment when you receive your Senior badge in the presence of your family and friends is something quite special. This badge symbolises leadership - your responsibility as a Year 12 student in the white shirt. I know all our Seniors will thrive with this challenge and opportunity. Thank you to the musicians and the Identity team for their organisation and work behind the scenes to make this such a successful and significant event for our Year 12 students and their families.  

On another note, this Thursday 13 February is the Anniversary of the National Apology. It was this day in 2008 when then Prime Minister, Kevin Rudd made a formal apology to Australia’s Indigenous Peoples acknowledging the Stolen Generations. It was hoped that this apology would help close the gap between Indigenous and non-indigenous Australians. 

On Thursday, 16 students will have the opportunity to attend the twelfth Anniversary of the National Apology to the Stolen Generations at the Southern Cross Catholic College, Scarborough. Students will have the opportunity to hear stories and experiences from elders of the Stolen Generations. 

In the custom of our school, we acknowledge the traditional custodians of this land and pay our respects to the elders’ past, present and emerging, for they hold the memories, the traditions, the culture and the hopes of Australia. We must always remember that under the concrete of our school, was and always will be traditional Aboriginal land. We pay respect to them on whose land we now are, acknowledging the loss of lands, cultures and treasures; knowing the consequences for people, communities and nations; and believing we can walk together to a better future.
Vicki Clark, 2017

I leave you with you a prayer that I shared with staff during our briefing on Monday morning in a reflection of this significant anniversary:

Holy Father, God of Love, you are the Creator of all things. We acknowledge the sufferings of Our peoples, and we ask your forgiveness. We thank you for the survival of Indigenous cultures. Our hope is in you because you gave your Son Jesus to reconcile the world to you. We pray for your strength and grace to forgive, accept and love one another, as you love us and forgive and accept us in the sacrifice of your Son. 

Wontulp Bi-Buya Indigenous Theology Working Group, 1997

Director of Music | Mr Jan Hewerdine

Congratulations to the violin section of the Waterford Soloists, under the direction of Mrs Domenica Kelly, for their performance at the Scholars’ Assembly on Tuesday. 

All ensembles are now underway. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the Music Department


The Queensland Conservatorium Griffith University is pleased to present the inaugural State Honours Ensemble Program (SHEP) Middle School - South-East Queensland from Friday 29 to Sunday 31 May 2020; to be held at the Queensland Conservatorium's South Bank campus. SHEP provides an opportunity for middle school (Years 6-9) wind, brass, percussion, string and voice students to work in an intensive environment of musical excellence with their peers from south east Queensland, under the leadership of a team of eminent conductors from Queensland Conservatorium Griffith University. Nominations will be made by students’ instrumental teachers. 

Talkin' Jazz

For students who are looking for avenues to learn about jazz, I would like to point you towards the Talkin’ Jazz programme for high school students. For more information please visit  or email

Instrument protocols

A letter went out recently to all Years 5 and 6 families regarding protocols in storing instruments at the College. In an effort to help you manage the storage of your musical instrument when you arrive at school, can I ask you to do the following please:

  • If you play either flute, clarinet or oboe, please keep your instrument in your school bag.
  • If you play trumpet, trombone, euphonium, alto/tenor saxophone, bassoon, violin, viola or cello, please store these instruments at the start of the day in room MU2, which is located in the Music Centre. The shelving is clearly marked.
  • Please refrain from using your classroom bag racks (and walkways) to store your instruments. The chances of the instrument being stolen are high.
  • Additionally, we ask that you do not leave your instrument in the walkways of the Music Centre.

Terrace App

A reminder that the Terrace App is used to store and disseminate information such as the Music and Speech and Drama handbooks, the weekly rehearsal schedule and event memos for performances. There will still be some information found on the College website, but it will be of a more general nature. 

Performance and workshop notifications are emailed via Parent Lounge and will be used to ascertain who will be attending performances and for roll marking. Could I ask that you respond promptly to these notifications as we use this information, among other things, to generate rolls and book transport (when applicable). 

Please keep in mind that it is expected that all members of an ensemble participate in all performances, but we understand that from time to time there may be circumstances that prevent attendance. If you are declining a tour, could you also please inform the ensemble director and cc 

Finally, as these notices only go out to parents, could you please discuss the event with your son to ensure that he has the details entered in his calendar. You and he will be able to view the Event Memo via the Terrace App. Links to Parent Lounge will be mentioned in this Terrace News article as they become available. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the Music Department

A full list of each term’s events is included at the end of this article and will be updated as required. This list will contain a basic outline of each event with more detailed information being sent directly to those involved via the Parent Lounge.

The Weekly Wrap

Cricket Wrap


Weather was the biggest factor in GPS Cricket for Round 2, with only two matches across the whole competition going ahead on the weekend. Best efforts were made to attempt to have teams playing but the significant rainfall left grounds underwater and wickets unprepared across Brisbane and in Toowoomba. The Terrace 1st XI were one of the teams to play on Saturday, playing out a gripping low scoring match with Toowoomba Grammar School (TGS) at Tennyson. The games were a disappointing loss for Terrace; however, they can take heart from the fight they showed, in trying conditions, against a quality seam bowling attack. Terrace can look forward to another home game this Saturday against BBC, which will no doubt be another closely contested battle.

This weekend the program plays Brisbane Boys' College (BBC) in the majority of games in the program with a number of supplementary games also being played. Please note that the Cricket Launch scheduled for Saturday 15 February has been rescheduled as a season celebration on Saturday 20 March.  The event will now be a great opportunity for the Terrace Cricket community to come together celebrate the season. The highlights of the evening are the presentation of the Terrace Cricket ’50 Game’ Cap to those students who have reached the milestone, as well as the Ron Oxenham Medal, presented to the Year 12 student who has best displayed the Terrace Cricket values and spirit of cricket during their time at the College. Registrations for the event are still open via College Events and the Cricket program extends its thanks to the Cricket Support Group for their organisation of such a great event.

Captains’ Corner | Vice Captain, Daniel Migotto

After only two weeks of the school year, there is no doubt that 2020 has well and truly begun. As of last Friday, the first Senior class of this decade was inducted as formal leaders. Badges were exchanged, thanks given and of course plenty of hugs from the Senior’s parents during and after the ceremony. Growing up at Terrace, I always dreaded Induction Mass; hours of sitting and staring at boys seated on stage. But this year offered a change of perspective, 2020 marked the year I fully embraced the idea that Terrace has changed my family forever.

As part of the tradition, parents and caregivers are invited to Induction Mass to pin badges on their sons, presenting them with the opportunity to recognise this significant milestone officially. Unfortunately, although they wanted to, my parents were not able to attend. This left me in an interesting position. Without my parents, I had to ask someone else to present my badges. I thought about it for a while, maybe a teacher, someone else’s parents? I wasn’t sure, but eventually, I decided to ask my brother, who was sitting up the back of the crowd. He agreed and I thought that was that, nothing special. I couldn’t even imagine how wrong I was. 

When the Vice Captains’ parents were invited to pin badges, Josh stood up and walked from the back of the hall to the front of the stage. Because it was unorthodox for a student to pin a badge, all eyes were on my little brother. By the time Josh got to me, most of the other parents had finished pinning the badges, leaving us in another interesting situation. Josh and I rarely share hugs, and I had planned on giving him one originally, but now that he and I were the only ones left with 2000 people watching, I thought I would spare him the embarrassment. But to my pleasant surprise, after he finished pinning the badge, Josh gave me a massive hug. It might seem trivial, but it meant a lot to me. And seeing the reaction of boys around me, we were reminded how Terrace brings us together because here, we are all brothers. 

Since then, Josh and I have not talked about that day, but I hope it serves a reminder that not only is Terrace a new family, but it brings old families together. 

Terrace Ladies Group

The last two weeks have been full of emotion, with firsts and lasts for our family and many others at the school. We had our eldest son’s first last day at school and then the Year 12 Induction Mass - in my eyes, the apex of events. It brought together everything that is amazing about our Terrace Family and the College for these young men and their families in their last year of school. 

On the one hand, we had our 2020 Seniors together with their respective parents or significant others. You cannot help but feel a strong sense of belonging when you are amongst this group. It is a turning point in these young men's lives, one from which they will go on to strive to do their best academically, sporting and emotionally. As we know in this world, we are all the same, but different. Around that room there were different stories from each Year 12 boy and their families of how they got to this point and it is this diversity that is worth acknowledging and embracing. 

Just like the Year 12 boys, the families of these boys have their own tribes. Sadly, I know there are some families who don’t have a tribe and feel like they have never fit in at Terrace and feel like they don’t belong. In the true spirit of the Terrace Family I would like to challenge you to reach out to a family who you may see on the fringes or may never have seen them before and invite them in, to experience what it is like to be part of this amazing Terrace Family (this gives me goose bumps just writing about it).

In my ideal world I would like to think that every family goes away from Terrace having had a wonderful experience. It may just be that one small interaction with a family you have never crossed paths with before that will turn around their whole experience. 

When you are engaging with these parents check that they are in the loop, do they receive communication? Are we reaching out beyond social media to our community? If not give them the TLG email or mine and we will put them in touch with others in their year level/s and also make sure they know of other opportunities to connect.

As this is my first time around having a son as a Senior, I know firsthand that it is a steep learning curve. I know my tribe is there guiding me along the way, pulling me up when I have those crazy lightbulb moments and think I am superwoman. What if you were a mum or dad of a boy at Terrace and didn’t have that tribe? 

There is a video of a Danish experiment where they gather distinct groups who identify themselves as being a certain type, with nothing in common with the other types.  The experiment asked them to step forward if they were stepfathers, and one or two from each group steps into a space together. The suited stockbrokers stepped in beside the hairy bikers and the homeless, etc. It was very moving. We all have lots in common…. we just have to stop seeing us and them – and just see US. 

Year 12 Induction Mass 

I would like to thank all the parents who generously gave their time last Friday to serve at the Year 12 Induction afternoon tea. It was greatly appreciated. Thank you to the coordinators Libby Baynton and Leonie Flynn for a job well done. It takes much planning and organising to put on these large events, and they could not happen without people giving themselves and their time.  

Care and Concern

The Care and Concern role is fundamental to the TLG's philosophy of building a strong community and providing support to those who need help from time to time. Usually Care and Concern takes the form of family meals, which are frozen for ease of transport.  Currently, if a need should arise, an email is sent to the full school community seeking the desired help, but we also have a small group of people who can be called on in an emergency scenario.  This might take the form of providing support before a formal roster is established, or to fill gaps in rosters.  If you feel you could contribute in this way, please email Chris Giust  An email will be sent out this week to people currently on the list to check ongoing availability.

If you are aware of a family who may need Care and Concern support, please contact me: or M: 0408 985 139. All assistance is confidential and only with the consent of the receiving family. 

Buddy program

It is no accident that Terrace is known for our hospitality and close community. One way we foster this is through the TLG Parent Buddy program.  Families are matched with current families in the same year level or suburb. Being a buddy is as easy as helping with public transport tips, uniform questions or coming along to meetings or events together. Thank you to everyone involved and if you would like a buddy or to be one, please email Mrs Sam Mills Sam is the Vice President of the TLG, in charge of logistics, and she would be very happy to assist. 

Family Directory

There are still spaces throughout the electronic Parent Directory on the Parent Lounge.  I am sending out another reminder to parents to sign on. Please log onto the Parent Lounge, update your details and share if you are happy for others in your various year levels to contact you if the need arises (e.g. accidental bag swap, lifts to training, invitations etc). This is also crucial for our year level coordinators. If you have any queries on how to update your details on the Family Directory on the Parent Lounge, again, please email Mrs Sam Mills

TLG correspondence

If you are not on our mailing list but would like to be, please email our Secretary, Mrs Kris Siddle: Please also ensure that you save this email address into your contacts as it may find its way to junk mail.
