Principal’s Message | Dr Michael Carroll

Dear members of the Terrace Family,

This Saturday, Terrace will compete in the Head of the River.  Our rowers have been working very hard throughout the season and have recorded some excellent results so far.  Although there is a full round of Cricket and Volleyball scheduled, Terrace will have plenty of supporters cheering for our rowers.  Good luck to everyone this weekend.

Last Friday night, our swimmers performed very well, with both the Junior and Senior teams recording fifth place at the GPS Swimming Championships.  We were very proud of our swimmers and the crowd support was again very good.  Congratulations to all of our swimmers and coaches for a great season.  A special mention to Thomas Neill (Year 12) who won four races, including a GPS record. Another highlight was the final event of the carnival, the 6x50m Open Freestyle Relay, where our swimmers recorded a magnificent win for Terrace.  Well done to all involved.  I would like to point out that Conor Tweedy was poolside to support Tom and the entire swimming team.  Thank you Conor, your courage and strength continue to be an inspiration to all of us.  

Next Tuesday 19 March, the College will celebrate St Joseph’s Day with our St Joseph’s Day Liturgy.  St Joseph, as our patron, displayed the qualities of dignity and respect throughout his life and is a role model for our Terrace Gentlemen.

Over the coming weeks, students across all year levels will be finalising assignments.  It is a time of potential stress for students and families.  The assessment calendars identify when all assessment is due and therefore allow planning to occur.  As the term draws closer to the end, it is even more important that all students focus a little more on their studies.  Good luck to all students.

Finally this week, tomorrow is National Anti-Bullying Day. As the Terrace Family, it is very important that all of us do what we can to respect each other and treat people with dignity.  On Friday, the Terrace Family will stand together against bullying.  Each of us has a responsibility in this area.

Have a great week
God Bless.

Dr Michael Carroll

The thoughts and prayers of the Terrace Family this week are with long-serving staff member Mr Geoff Ludlow, whose dear mother Ruth passed away on the weekend.  Ruth had a long and fulfilling life, but losing a parent is never easy and we are conscious that things have been tough for Geoff this week as he has got on with the job of teaching his classes.  Ruth will be farewelled on Thursday of next week.  May she rest in peace.

This week, we welcomed a new member of staff to the College.  Mr Shaun Steadman has commenced in the important role of Director of ICT.  Our school is a complex environment and its ICT services are critical in ensuring we deliver best practice to our students and their families.  Among other responsibilities, Shaun will lead our IT Steering Committee, whose focus will be the ongoing implementation of appropriate IT resources and practices into teaching and learning.  We extend a warm Terrace welcome to Shaun and wish him well in what is a critical position at the College.  Sincere thanks to Mr Brett Auton, who has led our IT team in exemplary fashion over recent months.

In other staffing news, Mrs Karen Lalic this week commenced in the role of Studies Office Assistant following the departure of Mrs Anne Kirkwood.  Karen’s main focus will be the QCS program in this, its final year.  Mr Terry Thompson, our Treacy House Dean, also returned this week following a short period of leave.  It is always wonderful to have Terry’s enthusiasm and professionalism at the College.

Wishing all members of our College community the very best as we approach the busy final weeks of the term.

Dean of Studies | Mr Mason Hellyer

Two weeks ago, I stood in the gallery and watched the 1st VI Volleyball team take on Churchie. In the first set, which they lost convincingly, nothing went right for them, and every time they attempted to take a step forward to get back in the game, it didn’t work – an attack got blocked, a call went against them, the spike just went out. 

However, between sets they regrouped, went back to the basics and worked their way into the next set – their only focus being to win the next point, then the set. And they did. Serves went in, passes went to the setter, attacking spikes hit the floor, blocks were made; this resulted in the team winning the second set, and then the third set, and then the fourth set - and ultimately the match.

We are currently in the midst of a demanding part of the term – assignments are due, and exams are only two weeks away. Students will feel like there is a lack of time or motivation at present. However, we need to take a lesson from the 1st VI - when you are feeling pressure and performance is not at its best, go back to the basics and concentrate on what you have to do next:

• Revisit your study plan. If you have moved away from the plan – get back on track.
• As assignments are handed in – reallocate that time to preparation for your exam subjects.
• Students have all received their exam timetables – plan backwards from each exam, how much time you will spend preparing. Make sure you spend time to prepare for each subject.
• Use the resources around you. There are many opportunities for staff tutoring (tutoring timetable is on the College App), be an active learner, use this time to get assistance with the aspects of your work that you don’t know.

Most importantly, start now. Just like the 1st VI, attend to the basics – have a plan, work consistently, focus on the next task. Then you will experience success.

A number of high performing students have been rewarded for their success in external academic competitions recently. Patrick Gleeson (Year 11) and Justin Jeyarajah (Year 11) have been invited to the Asian Science Camp in China this year based on their outstanding performance in the Olympiad competitions last year – top 1% in Australia. Yang Zhang (Year 11) has been invited to attend the Australian Mathematical Olympiad Selection School with the aim to gain selection into the Australian team. We wish Yang all the best.

Dean of Students | Mr Damien Cuddihy

This week, the College organised a series of educational processes to assist Terrace students to gain an understanding of the College view towards bullying. I hope that this may have been a catalyst for some conversations to generate at home on the topic. If Anti-Bullying Week didn’t find its way to the dinner table, then I would like to give you a quick overview of some of the initiatives used by the College this week to raise awareness on the issue.

During Pastoral Care Groups, the College Anti-Bullying Statement was presented to the boys. The goal of this process was to ensure that the boys are aware of the options they have available to them if they are exposed to any aspect of bullying. I would like to draw your attention to one particular aspect of this statement concerning image based abuse: 

Image based abuse occurs when intimate, nude or sexual images are distributed without the consent of those pictured. This includes real, altered (eg photoshopped) and drawn pictures and videos. Image based abuse also includes threatening to send nude pictures of someone unless some demand is met by the victim. This is an ongoing area of concern for not only schools in Australia but in general society. 

On Tuesday’s assembly, a series of clear statements were made to ensure all students understand what the College expectations are in this general area. At this time, we clearly articulated the connection between the Edmund Rice Touchstones and the values that underpin our College. All of these are totally against the concept of bullying. On Thursday, all Houses held special assemblies drawing focus to the concept of supporting each other as a House community. The week culminates with an overt display of support for Anti-Bullying Week 2019 from the student body by wearing orange ties for the day. 

Last Friday night, the Years 10 and 12 cohorts supported the GPS Swimming team at Chandler in what was a fantastic evening. I would like to commend the Seniors for their leadership throughout the evening and also the energy provided by the boys from Waterford. Leading the 6x50m Open Freestyle relay from start to finish was a fabulous effort by Thomas Neill and the team, and a great way to finish the evening for all involved. This weekend draws our focus to the 2019 Head of the River at Wyaralong Dam. A reminder to all supporters that the uniform expectation is formal academic dress which includes the white shirt. 

Dean of Identity | Mr Charles Brauer

“Inclusive Community”

Enrolment interview season always provides a time for a small internal audit of our College. Whilst discussing with parents and aspiring Terracians the benefits and suitability of a Terrace education, I often find myself exploring the heart of our community – that which makes our Terrace Family tick. From a student experience perspective, my exploration is often directed towards our House system, our vehicle for pastoral care. I strongly believe our House communities are a wonderful avenue for each individual student’s dignity to be nurtured and for each individual to feel a true sense of belonging, encouraging him to feel free to be the best he can be.

Below are our House banners, which are a representation of our Terrace Family and a representation of how we are expected to contribute to building a community whereby each individual is made to feel welcomed, included, respected and cared for.

If you look closely at the House banners you will see in the background ten concentric circles, connected to one another by pathways.  These circles and pathways represent the coming together of our nine House and Waterford Place communities – the coming together of people to celebrate, to share stories and to share a meal. 

On closer inspection of the banners, you will notice within the circles pairs of “U-shaped” objects facing towards the centre of the circles. These represent young men gathering together to share their struggles and their triumphs, their highs and their lows. 

The background artwork of the House banners, which we mounted in the Campbell Centre this week, is by Jack Bugmy, a proud Aboriginal man of the Kamilaroi country of northern New South Wales, and our Year 10s of the Beyond Borders immersion. Whilst on this immersion, our Terracians explored Aboriginal culture and spirituality, both of which are extremely rich and powerful in their understanding of how people and communities should live together in peace and harmony. The original artwork, which many of you will recognise, remains hanging proudly in the alcove area of Waterford Place.  This week’s College Assembly saw Harry O’Brien (Year 12) provide us with a reflection on his experience of an inclusive community here at Terrace. As Harry spoke, he strongly affirmed the message of our House banners – how we are our dependent on one another.  Harry’s experience acknowledges “I am because we are”; in essence, we are at our best when we are together as a common community.

Acting Dean of Waterford | Mr Luke Gribble

At this stage of the term, the key message delivered to the boys at Waterford Place is to ensure they make a quick transition from an assignment focus to an exam focus. With English and History assignments due next week and exams not far away, this transition needs to be well planned. There is great evidence to support the correlation between an early start to the revision process with positive outcomes from the upcoming exam block. If the boys start the revision process too late and then try to ‘cram’ for exams, this can become quite stressful and often produces frustration and disappointing results. Every Year 10 boy was given a ‘Checklist’ booklet that highlights what will be assessed and this allows them to work through every learning goal across each of the subjects being examined at the end of the term. This will be a very busy period for the Year 10s as we are only a few weeks away from the Easter break.  Students need to maintain the momentum before enjoying the holidays.

Outside the classroom, the boys continue to be actively involved in the Term 1 co-curricular programs. I would like to thank the many Year 10 boys who supported the GPS Swimming team at Chandler last Friday night. With success in both the first and last races and plenty of action in between, the boys had plenty to cheer for and did a wonderful job of encouraging and supporting our swimmers. I would also like to thank Jake Laherty, Oliver Casey-Ryan, Callum Fitzgerald and Luca Cavallucci for leading the Years 5 and 6 Terrace boys through the Junior program in the morning and then backing up for the Senior event well into the night.

This weekend brings another championship event, with the culmination of the rowing season at the Head of the River. Best wishes to all of our rowers.

We are encouraging the boys to show initiative and one of the early start ups this year at Waterford is our own version of the Kolega Café. Tobias Mohr, Thomas Davis, Byron Jackson, Oliver Ryan, Sacha Rapchuk and Jonathan Gooch have got the Café up and running on Fridays where the iced coffees have been a big hit with the cohort as well as raising much needed funds for our friends in Timor-Leste.  

Acting Director of Music | Mr Jan Hewerdine

Congratulations to our Fanfare Trumpet team who performed at College Assembly on Tuesday under the direction of Mr Brad Esbensen.

Holiday Workshops

I would like to draw your attention to the upcoming holiday workshops (please see below) for the ANZAC Day Marching Band and the Red Peppers Pep Band.  For those who will also be trying out for the Years 8, 10 and Open Football teams, please attend the trials first up at 9am, then come across to the band rehearsal. We are all in the same space at Tennyson. The expectation from the sport department is that it won’t take long to assess you. 

Music Practice

Students are reminded of the importance of consistent home practice to memorise their music and to spend some time working on marching; doing this in front of a mirror or video recording their practice will help to improve their skills. Years 11 and 12 students in the SWE and Red Thunder Drumline are reminded that this performance forms part of their qualification for an Honour Pocket (see p.151 of the Student Diary) for those ensembles. Our first events for Honour Pocket qualification will be happening in Term 2; the ANZAC Day Parade on 25 April and the Norman Clarke Concert on 9 June.

Music Practice Hall is held on Mondays from 3.15-5pm. We encourage you to support this unique opportunity on a regular basis, whereby your sons can practice and receive guided supervision with tutors from the Queensland Conservatorium of Music and other tertiary institutions. Please take advantage of this unique opportunity. 

Music Notifications

A reminder that the Terrace App is being used to store and disseminate information such as the Music and Speech and Drama Handbook, 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 sent out as a Tour emailed via the Parent Lounge and this 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 us 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 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 the 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.

To discontinue lessons, please email at least two full weeks prior to the end of term (Thursday 21 March). Notification after this time will incur a full term’s fee for the following term.

Acting Director of Sport | Mr Tyron Mandrusiak

This week, we presented our Year 9 Open Rowers on assembly. Although our mighty Year 8 Learn to Row program didn’t get presented, I would like to take this opportunity to congratulate them on their efforts this season and look forward to having them back next season.

A snap shot of our year groups heading into Saturday’s Head of the River:

Year 9

This is the first year that the Year 9 cohort has been invited to compete at the Head of the River in the history of the GPS competition, which marks a unique event this year. Several crews across the age group have placed throughout the season, with the Year 9 1st Quad winning the opening race of the season.

Year 10

The point score crews that count toward the Old Boys’ Cup GPS Rowing Premiership start in Year 10. The Year 10s have been coming second in their age group points in the last few regattas and are looking to set up the day for the rest of the shed.

Year 11

The points score crews in Year 11 are worth double the Year 10s as they row in eights. Over the past few weeks, all three crews have finished in the top two with both the Year 11 1st VIII and Year 11 2nd VIII winning their respective races. These crews have finished on top of the points in their age group in the last few regattas as they look to build on the work of the Year 10 group.


With their final race this weekend, the boys have their last chance at Head of the River glory this weekend. We have seen promising results across all crews, with the 3rd VIII securing a second place on the weekend and the 2nd VIII moving through the field.  The Old Boys’ Cup will certainly come down to the wire with some great performances.

Open 1st VIII

Each week the crew has been moving through the field. With a courageous second place on the weekend in the final regatta prior to Head of the River, the Open 1st VIII are looking to have their race of the year this weekend.

Sport Sign On

A reminder that sign on for the below sports is now open and will close Friday 22 March. Please be sure to take time to sign on as the playing numbers assist with the organisation of coaches, referees, buses, field usage and ultimately how many teams we nominate in the GPS competition.

The Weekly Wrap

Cricket Wrap

In what is always a great occasion in the GPS Cricket calendar, Terrace played ‘Spring Hill Rivals’ Brisbane Grammar School (BGS) in Round 6.  The schools competed in a total of 36 matches against each other on Saturday at both Tennyson and Northgate, in a typically hard fought round of cricket. 

Terrace were able to emerge victorious in 26 of the matches, taking an overall win percentage of 72% against Grammar, highlighted by some convincing victories in a number of age groups. The standard of play displayed by Terrace cricketers is improving with each week and we commend the playing group on their commitment to training and matches and the deserved rewards that are being achieved each Saturday. 

The 1st XI recorded their third win in a row, with a bonus point victory over a youthful BGS outfit. This result leaves Terrace second on the GPS ladder and sets up a top of the table clash with The Southport School this weekend.

As we approach the back end of the GPS Cricket season, all players are encouraged to relish their final matches over the remaining weeks as the Cricket Program looks to finish the season strongly and play the Terrace Cricket way, Hard but Fair

Please see: Round 6 Results

Volleyball Wrap

Round 5 saw our teams making the trip out to Ipswich. Terrace won most of the games on the day, and we are anticipating this success will prepare us well for the next two rounds against Nudgee and BGS.

The 7As continued their winning form, taking out the match 2-0. Tasman Bunkum’s improved setting and strong serving helped his 8A team to a 2-0 win. The 9As bounced back from the previous week’s loss with a crushing 2-0 win, and Harry Lane was awarded MVP for his consistent serve receive and defensive pickups.

Oscar Eastman’s improvements in aggressive hitting helped the 10As win easily in two sets. The 11As also cruised through in straight sets, and Max Balmanno was awarded MVP for consistently killing the ball. The 2nd VI won 2-0, with help from Lachlan Hill’s commitment to the team and all round play. 

The 1st VI were ready to back up their win from the previous week, and did so in excellent fashion. The 1sts put up a no-fuss win in straight sets against IGS, and George Moore was a force at the net throughout the game.

Many teams are still in premiership contention, and every match counts. Join us in the Terradome this Saturday for Round 6 against traditional rivals Nudgee, which is sure to be a great day for the last home round for the season.

Captains’ Corner | Vice Captain, Tom Burns

Whilst another week has flown by for some, last Friday night saw the pinnacle of the term for our dedicated swimmers. The GPS Swimming Championship was a fantastic night which not only celebrated the success of the athletes in the pool, but also the spirit each school so abundantly has. Terrace was fortunate enough to bring both Years 10 and 12 out to the hallowed Sleeman Sports Complex, which proved to be a good mix as we quickly became the loudest school on the night. Between each song that was played over the loudspeaker and each war cry, the true dedication, commitment and desire of each swimmer was shown to all who watched. It was truly spectacular to see the talent each one of our swimmers possesses combine with the determination to win, to provide us spectators with a never ending battle in the pool. Whilst all of our swimmers competed valiantly and did their school proud, a special mention must go to Thomas Neill and Felix Wilson. Tom Neill, the Captain of Swimming, led by example as he took out all four of his events and broke a GPS record in the Open 200m Freestyle.  Felix competed in a multitude of events and won the 50m breaststroke. Our 6x50m Freestyle Open Relay team rounded out the night with an exciting win which saw Terrace grab fifth spot on the night. Congratulations to all the swimmers who competed and I hope you enjoy a well deserved break. 

On another note, this week is Anti-Bullying Week where the school, both students and staff, collectively aim to address the issue of bullying within Terrace and raise awareness to what bullying can be misinterpreted as. One of the key messages from this week is the importance of support for one another, even for a person who may not be a close friend of yours. Support for one another is invaluable in fighting bullying as it shows the victim he is not alone. In what can be a dark time, knowing you are valued and appreciated by someone, even if they are a stranger, is priceless. This support is easily achieved by simply having a chat with the person you think may be struggling and asking them how they are. In keeping with our motto this year, we as a school must go All In together and support one another to counter bullying and help all fellow Terracians.

Terrace Ladies Group

Last Friday, we had the lovely TLG Welcome Mass in the Chapel of the Holy Family.  It was a very special morning shared together. The Choir graced us with their beautiful singing of some new hymns while still keeping some of our favourites in the ceremony. Thank you to Mrs Bernadette Debattista on the piano and Mr Brad Esbensen on the trumpet, who accompanied the boys to create a most memorable occasion. The new time of 7.30am seemed to have helped our mothers attend before getting on with their busy days. Thank you to all those that were able to come.

Years 5 – 9 Mothers' High Tea

Planning is well underway for the Years 5-9 Mothers’ High Tea event to be held on 3 May at the Victoria Park Golf Club. Don’t forget that it is always a good idea to get in early to purchase your ticket, as these events tend to sell out quickly. Ladies are seated in nominated year groups, so there is no urgency to organise groups to sit with. We also take a lot of care in where we place ladies on tables to ensure you have a wonderful time together. If you have more than one son in these years, you can nominate which year level you would like to sit with this year when you purchase your ticket.
