Principal’s Message | Acting Principal, Mr Chris Ryan

I was inspired by Br Barry Buckley’s address to the class of 1967 last Friday night. Fifty-five of these gentlemen were in attendance and you could have heard a pin drop when Br Buckley spoke. Firstly, I was struck by his knowledge of everyone’s names and their story 50 years after they had finished school. Then, I was struck by his humility as he told them how much he had grown as a person because of what they had taught him as boys in the 1960s. Finally, I was struck by his wisdom as he spoke of the goodness he found and finds as Brother, teacher, Principal and Old Boy within the Terrace community and within relationships where he has encountered the face of God in good people at Terrace for over more than half a century. Again, I was impacted similarly on the Saturday night when Br Tony White spoke movingly and honestly to the 85 Old Boys gathered for the 1987 reunion. I wish I could bottle their words and example and the esteem in which they were held at these two events, it said much of the foundations on which we stand today.

As an Edmund Rice Education Australia school we enter a phase of renewal as The Charter for our schools has been relaunched this week. EREA has reaffirmed the four touchstones for our schools; Liberating Education, Gospel Spirituality, Inclusive Community and Justice and Solidarity. We continue to be called and challenged by these touchstones and the renewed Charter document will inspire us to continue working together to create Catholic community in the Ricean tradition here at Terrace.

Report cards will be available at the conclusion of Week 1, Term 4 in Parent Lounge. As always, this is an excellent opportunity to reflect on the term with your son and to identify areas for celebration and improvement. Please use this opportunity to include him in a conversation about his progress and to revisit any strategies developed as a result of Parent/Teacher interviews earlier this term. Thank you for your partnerships with our teaching staff and please feel welcome to make contact with them should the need arise.

Tenders for the Mt Sion building project close on September 22. We predict that the site will be handed over to the builders in mid-October. Information concerning this process will be a focus in the early weeks of Term 4 and the cooperation of students, staff and parents over the 14 month building process will certainly be important. The result, in early 2019, will be a magnificent enhancement for the community.

At the conclusion of this term, teaching staff Mrs Natalie Berndt and Mr Alex Berry conclude their time with us. We thank them for their strong contribution to Terrace and wish them well. At the commencement of next term, Mrs Loren Serafin-Huey returns from leave. I take this opportunity to thank Mr James Turner for his work as Acting Head of Faculty, Business and Technology.

I draw your attention to and welcome you to attend two upcoming community events which have been advertised through our various publications and social media platforms:

  • The Terrace Family Night and Art Show on Friday 6 October, to be held in Treacy Court. This is a great celebration of student art and music with the Director of QAGOMA, Mr Chris Saines, as guest speaker.
  • The Br Barry Buckley Breakfast is to be held on Thursday 12 October at Brisbane City Hall and the guest speaker is Mr Cameron Clyne, the Chairperson of the Australian Rugby Union and former CEO of the National Australia Bank.

As the September break draws near, I take this opportunity to thank and congratulate the community on a busy, diverse and successful term. The four dimensions of students, staff, parents and Old Boys have been engaged in a wide range of activity across the term and our partnerships and collaborations are the fabric of the Terrace Family. I particularly wish to acknowledge everyone involved in all co-curricula activities this term across both Culture and Sport and congratulate everyone on our amazing culture of participation and performance.

I wish the Terrace Family a safe and peaceful September break and we look forward to Term 4.

Mr Chris Ryan

Acting College Principal

College Dean | Acting Dean, Mr Damien Fall

As we come to the end of another term, I would like to congratulate and thank our staff for their efforts throughout the term, particularly in recent days with the pressure of marking and reporting deadlines. It would be fair to say that students and staff look like they are ready for a well-deserved break.

With such a large staff, there are often movements that come about as a result of leave. While these changes can be disruptive, they are unavoidable and we certainly do all in our power to minimise any impact on classes when teaching staff take leave they are entitled to enjoy. This week, we farewell Mrs Natalie Berndt and Mr Alex Berry, both of whom have done a wonderful job in contract teaching positions. We thank Natalie and Alex and wish them well and hope to see them back at Terrace sometime in the future. Thanks also to our friend Mrs Madonna Effeney, who filled in for Mrs Cath Griffin while she took long service leave.

Next term, Mrs Loren Serafin-Huey will return from leave and we thank Mr James Turner, who has acted in the role of Head of Faculty, Business and Technology. Mr Geoff Ludlow will return to his role as classroom teacher at the commencement of Term 4. Mrs Tracey McIvor also returns to the Faculty of Exceptional Learners after a period of leave and Mrs Kathy Wilson will resume her role as Assistant to the Dean of Studies in Term 4. Thanks to Mrs Anne Kirkwood for covering this role. Finally, Mrs Jan Cameron will return next term, and we thank Mrs Judy Ariotti for her dedication in covering Jan’s role as Academic Administrator.

I wish all of our families an enjoyable break and I hope parents as well as students are able to enjoy a change of routine. I look forward to a productive time when we return in Term 4.

Dean of Studies | Mrs Julie Quinn

Spend the holidays reading...


Today marks the final day of our exams. Many boys have managed this demanding week very well, ensuring that their revision and preparation have placed them in a position to give their very best. I hope that every boy can go on holidays knowing that irrespective of the results, they have given their best effort in the preparation and the execution of their exams. As always, it is most encouraging to witness the many conversations among the boys that include aspects relating to subject content and explanations of concepts.


Reports will be sent electronically on Friday 6 October, the final day of the first week of next term. “Bubble” reports will be included for Years 10, 11 and 12 students indicating placement within the cohort. There are no formal times set for communication with teachers around outcomes from Term 3, but the normal channels of communication still exist for conversations and feedback.


Yesterday was the presentation evening for all the Immersion units. This program continues to challenge and inspire our boys in so many ways, from gaining new knowledge to empathy and understanding of others in the world to appreciating the gifts of one another. My thanks to our staff who make this experience possible and so rewarding. Every boy will receive a report on his involvement within the Immersion unit that he completed.


I do hope that these holidays provide some down time for many of our boys who have worked so diligently this term. It is also a time for families to relax and enjoy each other’s company without the busy pace of term time. I would also encourage boys to spend some of this time engaged in reading books. I often quote that reading is an investment in one’s future. Not only is knowledge gained but skills in comprehension, grammar, sentence structure, punctuation and vocabulary are added. The more you read, the more words you gain exposure to and these words will inevitably make their way into your everyday vocabulary.

In our frenetic internet world, our attention is spread across many different directions at once as we multitask through every day. As quoted by the article Reading is to the mind what exercise is to the body:

In a single five minute span, the average person will divide their time between working on a task, checking email, chatting with a couple of people (via gchat, skype, etc.), keeping an eye on twitter, monitoring their smartphone, and interacting with co-workers. This type of behaviour causes stress levels to rise, and lowers productivity.

Enjoy the break and I look forward to sharing our final term commencing on Tuesday 3 October .

Dean of Students | Acting Dean, Mr Damien Cuddihy

I would like to wish all members of our Terrace Family a happy and safe mid-semester break. I hope you get the opportunity to break from the normal 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 did so much to assist in the smooth running of programs this term. The College is certainly very appreciative of this support from the parent community.

Throughout the term, I have often had concerns for the safety of students who walk down to the Valley train station of an afternoon. We have consistently spoken to the boys on assemblies and undertaken a number of spot checks of an afternoon in and around St Paul’s Terrace to raise awareness about the need to cross at the lights. I frequently receive reports from concerned members of the public about students running across the road at dangerous points. I would appreciate that if you have sons who frequently transit to the Valley train station that you have a discussion about road safety and the need to cross at the lights.

As usual, we ask that the boys return to school 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 cannot be pulled down over the eyebrows. 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 sport 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 school each 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.

Dean of Identity | Mr Charles Brauer

​A Liberating Terrace Education

One of the wonderful gifts that a Terrace education provides is the Immersion program for our Year 10 campus, Waterford Place. Rarely in anyone’s lifetime, be it in our student or adult lives, will we spend an extended time away from family and our daily routines and place ourselves outside our comfort zones, challenging and enriching our ideals and values. The Waterford Place Immersion experiences does just this. While our Immersion students shared their experiences with their parents at last night’s Immersion Presentation Evening, it became abundantly clear that the time immersed in another setting was truly ‘liberating’ for our Terrace Gentleman and for those with whom they interacted.

Mutual liberation is at the heart of the Catholic mission of Edmund Rice and the ensuing spirituality that we foster and enact as a Terrace Family. Furthermore, the ideal of a ‘Liberation Education’ is a key tenant, or Touchstone, of The Charter for Catholic Schools in the Edmund Rice tradition that we are called to embrace and animate in union with our network of over 50 schools around Australia.

Christian Brothers' College St Kilda hosted the renewal of The Charter, signifying a commitment to ensuring that the unique identity of our Edmund Rice schools remains as strong as ever. Embedded within the renewed Charter are the following reflective questions associated with the 'Liberating Education' segment. What would be your response to these questions considering your experience of a Terrace education?

  • How are the vision and hope for a better world for all expressed and celebrated in our school community?
  • What experiences most awaken our young people to the need for liberation in their own lives?
  • What knowledge and skills do we equip our young people with so that they are able to discern the liberation needs of others?
  • Who amplifies the voices of those most in need of liberation within our school community? How is that voice received?

Last night’s Immersion Presentation Evening and the stories shared by the Gentlemen of Year 10 provided some powerful answers to these questions. These answers and stories again highlighted how our Terrace Family is blessed with dedicated and passionate students, parents and teachers who go above and beyond to ensure the best possible Catholic educational and formational experiences for our young men.

The renewed Charter for Catholic Schools in the Edmund Rice Tradition can be accessed here

“If you have come to help me, you are wasting your time. If you have come because your liberation is bound up with mine, then let us work together.”

Years 5 and 6 Program Leader | Mr Brendan Ganley

Marcus Saunders, Max Van Balen and Charlie Lilwall at the Science Fair.

Today brings to an end an extraordinary term. Terrace is such a busy environment and all students will now finish knowing that they have put in all the work possible to achieve their goals. The preparation weeks have taken place and now the application week has concluded. With Term 4 being such a short term, being prepared for that first week will be crucial to success during the semester. Assessment will begin very early in Term 4, so preparation for this will be important. Assessment Calendars will be provided on the first day which gives each student a stepping stone in a short term.

Even though reports will not come out until after the holidays, the achievements of the term can be reflected on. The results now can’t change, but there could be reflection if the effort throughout the term was not the highest it could be. Each student should ask himself if he put in the best possible effort? If we cannot reflect on the past, there is little chance the future can be improved.

Today in the Campbell Centre, the Annual Science Fair took place. It was the culmination of a term’s work in science for our Years 5 and 6 students. Days like today are valuable as to pursue the challenges of science through prediction and discovery. Well done to our award winners on the day for your thoroughness and willingness to delve into the question of WHY?

A very happy holiday to all families. Wishing you a safe break with your family and may we see you re-energised for Term 4.

Harry David thanks Mr Norman Clarke for his support.

Chess – The Last Move

Well done to our Chess players for last Friday night and the entire season of Chess. Our Junior players showed the depth and strength as Year 7 student Lachie Wood, on Board 4, took out his more senior competition, who also holds a higher Queensland Junior Chess Ranking.

Overall, the team finished in equal third position on the GPS ladder. We look forward to an even more competitive year as we keep the same team on our Premier Board in 2018.

All British Day Needs Volunteers

If you have a love for all cars British, you should make your way to Tennyson on Sunday 17 September for the All British Day. This is not only a great day in the outdoors looking at some beautifully restored cars, it is also a chance for our Terrace Family to volunteer some time in the BBQ pit and canteen. This day is a fundraising opportunity for our Music students for the 2019 Singapore tour.

If you have some time to give or some home bake you would like to provide, please go to the following link and fill in your details: .

We would expect families from the Premier and Second Ensembles to be involved with volunteering for this day. Students are also expected to help parents as they ultimately gain from this fundraising event.

Old Boy Passion

Thank you to Norman Clarke, GT 1954, who generously gave financial assistance to our growing Years 5 and 6 program this week. With Norman’s assistance, we could buy several expensive and essential instruments for our students in the Years 5 and 6 Band to play. We can now slowly grow in a more balanced program for our concert bands in the senior school, which will make us even more competitive.

While recently on campus, Year 12 student Harry David presented Norman with a favourite photo from a recent College event, Jazz Night 2016.

Jailhouse Jazz Date Claimer

With final touches being confirmed on the 2017 Jazz Night ‘Jailhouse Jazz’, we ask you to set aside Friday 20 October to lock yourself in Boggo Road Gaol for a night of great entertainment. Gates will open at 6.30pm and the guards don’t go off duty until the end of the you will be locked up for the entire concert!

Adult Tickets will be $40 including a drink on arrival and Boggo Road Gaol tour experience. Pre dinner drinks and gate opening from 6.30pm with the show featuring all three of our Terrace Big Bands and our staff band who will play alongside our student stars and special guests who are ‘putting the band back together…’

Tickets on sale via College Events shortly.

Preparation for the GPS Track and Field Championships is well underway. Boys have had opportunities to train across all disciplines throughout Terms 2 and 3. With Rugby and Basketball now finished, the pathway for Track and Field and the opportunity to attend training is well and truly open.

Track and Field should be every boy’s priority and to assist this the preseason Rowing and Cricket programs have been modified to a reduced contact start. The boys who have chosen Cricket, Rowing, Gymnastics, Swimming or Volleyball will not be disadvantaged if they commit the first few weeks of Term 4 to Track and Field.

Communication on what is being offered for Holiday Training is available on the Terrace App – under Track and Field. Up to date early communications will be posted on Twitter @TerraceAthletics.

Track and Field athletes will attend several meets in Term 4. These meets and the performances recorded will dictate the thinking in the selection of the final team.

All boys will be members of the larger squad – and from this squad the Championship team will be selected.

GPS Track and Field Meets, which boys need to attend and register performances at are:

  • Friday (evening) 6 October | The Southport School GOLD COAST
  • Friday (evening) 13 October | Nudgee College GT HOSTED MEET
  • Friday (evening) 20 October | Nudgee College TGS HOSTED MEET

GPS Junior Track and Field Championships Thursday 19 October QSAC

GPS Senior Track and Field Championships Friday 27 October QSAC

Thank you to all families and boys for their dedication and commitment to the Rugby and Basketball programs. I truly appreciate the families who travel all over South East Queensland to find their son's fixtures in supplementary games. Thank you.

If you are not engaged in holiday training for any of the activities offered, I hope you have a restful and relaxing holiday period.

The Weekly Wrap

Rugby Wrap

As I reflect on the season, I would like to congratulate all boys who took part in this year’s Rugby program. The teamwork, sportsmanship, courage and commitment shown throughout the season by all players was exceptional.

It was pleasing to see the continual improvement across all teams as the season progressed. The willingness to shift the ball to space and use the width of the field was clearly evident, with plenty of entertaining tries from all parts of the fields being scored.

A special thanks to our age group coordinators Mr Blair Copelin and Mr Brendan McGrath who managed to juggle team lists to ensure we had enough boys to fulfil our commitments to the supplementary draw.

The growth of our program is a direct result of the enthusiasm and professionalism of our coaches, referees, ground staff and the positive and supportive environment created by our parents on game day and in particular the ongoing commitment of the Rugby Support Group.

Season Snap Shot

  • Forty teams playing rugby at Terrace with over 780 boys participating in the program.
  • Five outstanding days at Tennyson.
  • Eight schoolboy based referees.
  • Overall win percentage across all teams of 61%
  • Averaging 25 points for, and 18 against per game.
  • Winning each day overall with the exception of the Nudgee day.
  • Undefeated teams 11B, 12D, 13C, 15D and 15E
  • Teams only to lose only one GPS game 3rd XV, 5th XV, 14B, 14C, 14D, 13B, 13E, 11A, 11C

Tennyson Canteen | That’s a Wrap

Last Saturday was another fabulous day at Tennyson with our Rugby boys playing against BBC. There was a lot going on, with the day also being Timor Friendship day and the Back to Tennyson Old Boys' Day incorporating a number of reunions. The TLG would like to thank everyone who came along to assist in the canteen. We had a full complement of helpers throughout the day, which was wonderful.

Saturday was the last of our home games at Tennyson for the year and so we wrap up and look back over what was a terrific year across Cricket, Football and Rugby. We are saying goodbye and a very big thank you to Mrs Doreen Hammond, our convenor for the past three years. Mrs Hammond is retiring and starting with a well deserved holiday cruise with her husband Mr Ray Hammond. On behalf of the TLG and the wider College community, we would like to express our great appreciation to them both for their tireless dedication and patience with us over those years.

We will be looking to replace Mrs Hammond for 2018 and will be advertising the position of Canteen Convenor in the coming months. If you, or anyone you know, might be interested in applying for this position, keep a look out in the forthcoming newsletters and on the Jobs @ Terrace page on the website. We will also be advertising beyond the College with a view to finding the right person.

Inter-House Athletics Carnival

The Inter-House Athletics Carnival at Tennyson will be held in Week 1, Term 4. The TLG will be operating a full canteen service and assistance will be requested as a volunteer sign-on via this link. Please sign on if you can and come along to enjoy a busy, but fun day at Tennyson feeding our boys. We will also be most grateful to home bake being either sent with the boys, or you could deliver either to Tennyson directly, or drop off to Student Services for collection and transport out to Tennyson. Last year the canteen was extremely popular with the boys and we are expecting the same again. More information for this will come in the week leading up to the carnival.

Coming Up

Thursday 6 October – Year 7 Orientation Evening

Friday 7 October – Inter-House Athletics Carnival

Monday 9 October – TLG Annual General Meeting.
