Principal’s Message | Dr Michael Carroll

Dear members of the Terrace Family,

Welcome to Week 2 in what will be a short and somewhat disrupted term.

As a Catholic School in the Edmund Rice tradition, the celebration of Edmund Rice Day is very important for us as a College community. On Friday, the students and staff will gather for our Edmund Rice Mass. By gathering for Mass, we continue to be proud of our association with Edmund Rice, the Christian Brothers and in more recent times, with EREA. Space will be tight in the Campbell Centre, but parents are very welcome to attend this Mass which commences at 8.45am.

Friday is also the day for the TLG Morning Tea at Victoria Park Golf Club.  This is an important event as mothers from Years 5 to 9 gather. In particular, it is a time for mothers and caregivers new to the Terrace Family to attend. I thank the TLG for this great event. 

Over the holiday period, Br Barry Buckley’s sister, Joan McCormack, passed away. I ask you to keep Br Buckley in your thoughts and prayers. The Terrace Family was also saddened to learn this week of the tragic passing of 2013 Senior, Felix Clifford. Our thoughts and prayers are with Felix's family at this incredibly difficult time. May perpetual light shine on them and may they rest in peace.

Parent/Teacher/Student interviews are scheduled over the next two weeks. These meetings are an important way to monitor progress, strengthen the parent-school partnership and particularly, allow planning for students for Term 2 and beyond.  I look forward to seeing many of you at these evenings.

The GPS season for Term 2 has commenced with large numbers of boys involved in the various activities. I again remind all spectators and players of our responsibilities as members of the Terrace Family and how we support the ideals of competition, sportsmanship and collegiality.  Congratulations to our 1st XI Football and 1st IV Tennis teams who recorded strong wins last weekend.

Over the holidays, many staff, students and parents were involved in a range of activities.  I thank and congratulate all those involved. In particular, I congratulate the 1st XI Football team for winning the EREA tournament. I also offer special congratulations to Thomas Neill (Year 12) for his outstanding success at the Australian Swimming Championships where he secured five gold medals and two silver medals. Tom has subsequently gained selection in the Australian team for the World Junior Championships which will be held in Budapest later in the year. Well done Tom. 

Finally, well done to the large numbers of students and staff who were involved in the ANZAC Parade in the city last Thursday. Over 100 students were part of the Terrace Band.  

The Mt Sion/Duhig Place project continues to progress well. Significant work is occurring inside, however, there are many visible signs of the external works progressing.  Everything remains on schedule for the College to begin using the facility at the start of Term 3. I again ask parents to be aware of the works when driving near the College.

Finally this week, I wish all families an enjoyable long weekend.

God Bless.

The Feast of Blessed Edmund Rice 

The pragmatism of the Christian Brothers is in flight on 5 May as it was chosen as a day when both the northern and southern hemispheres were in school so all communities connected to the Charism (special gift of the Holy Spirit) of Blessed Edmund Rice could share in the Eucharist. Of course, it is a profoundly theological and spiritual decision as well as practical. The selection of this day to celebrate the Founder of our schools calls us to communion with Christ with one another locally and with one another globally.

In today’s fast moving world, we can all get caught up in our bubbles, but for us who are a part of a universal Church and a family of schools which spreads across the globe, we are part of a movement which is much bigger than what we do locally. But what we do, and how we do it locally is so vital. What we do and how we do it locally is an expression of a much older and larger story, and on this day in particular for our Edmund story, we have an opportunity to reflect, give thanks and celebrate our unique part of a great and creative movement. In these particularly challenging times, there is a tremendous need for what Christian communities and partnerships like ours can bring to the lives of young people.  The triumphant mystery of Easter challenges us to be Easter people all year long; people of hope, compassion and optimism. Blessed Edmund Rice’s simple mantra, “May Jesus Live in Our Hearts, Forever” articulates this perfectly. Edmund hoped that his schools would be places of belonging and transformation; thank you and well done to all who help build this vision in our community in the ordinary and the everyday in forming the Terrace Gentleman in knowledge, humility and wisdom and striving and sometimes struggling in our very human way to make Terrace a place where Jesus is at the heart of things.

Staff news

This week we welcomed Ms Manali Trevedi who is working with our IT Support Team while Mr Trevor Buley is on leave for six weeks. 

We farewell and thank Mr Tony Nicita and Mr Peter Murdoch who have taught classes while Mr Tim Stephens and Mr Glenn Cameron have been on leave. Congratulations to Mr Cameron and his wife, Amelia on the safe arrival of baby boy George in mid-April. Welcome back to those gentlemen and thank you to Mrs Nicolette Clearly who looked after Barrett House for this time.

Dean of Studies | Mr Mason Hellyer

One of the most intriguing examples of planning for success that I have read was the story of Steven Bradbury and his gold medal win in the 100m short track speed skating at the 2002 Winter Olympics. Bradbury was the first athlete from the Southern Hemisphere to win a Winter Olympic gold medal.

Bradbury won his heat convincingly and was helped through the quarter final by the disqualification of another competitor. However, it was in the semi-final and final where his planning came to the fore. Bradbury and his coach determined that he was not the fastest athlete and therefore planned to stay out of the battle for first place, skate close behind the leading pack and then capitalise on any mistakes. In the semi-final, three competitors crashed, and he won. In the final, the same situation happened again, and Bradbury skated across the finish line in disbelief to claim the gold.

There are two parts to this story that are relevant to anyone who is aiming to succeed. Firstly, know your limitations. Bradbury knew his limitations but planned his strategy to maximise his strengths in order to take advantage of any opportunity that arose. Secondly, hard work and sacrifice got him to the Olympics. In his post-win interview, he said “Obviously I wasn’t the fastest skater. I don’t think I’ll take the medal as the minute and a half of the race I actually won. I’ll take it as the last decade of the hard slog I put in.”

Term 2 is a short term (nine weeks), therefore planning is essential. Each student will have a good idea of their strengths and weaknesses following the reporting and interview process currently occurring. It is essential that a plan is put in place. However, most importantly, it is the consistent hard work that will ensure the improvement or maintenance of academic success.

There are a number of initiatives that students can access to assist with their study:

• Assessment calendars have been distributed to students to assist with their planning.
• Staff tutoring is available - please see the schedule via the Terrace App
• Study Group is available to Years 11 and 12 students every afternoon in 4.22 / 4.23 from 3.15–5.30pm
• Year 12 peer tutoring is available every morning in 4.6. 

All the best for the term ahead.

Dean of Students | Mr Damien Cuddihy

Monday’s Inter-House Cross Country was another fantastic community day at Terrace. Congratulations to Mahoney House on winning the event this year. As always, the House Seniors did a tremendous job with the organisation and creating a spirited atmosphere throughout the day, similar to our band of supporters who stayed around to watch the 1st XI in Toowoomba on Saturday. It was great to see both the Tennis and Football programs commence the season with positive results. 

Last Wednesday, Major General Stephen Day addressed the College assembly at our ANZAC Day liturgy. The Major General spoke exceptionally well to the student body connecting the feelings of doubt and fear that all servicemen and servicewomen feel during service to the challenges facing the youth of today. Whilst the General’s speech had many important messages, his challenge for your sons to display moral courage within the school community was particularly pertinent in the context of an awareness campaign we are running around the College at the moment about being an “Upstander”; a person who takes action particularly when the easiest or most acceptable course of action is to do nothing.

 Winter uniform 

A final reminder that winter uniform commences on Tuesday next week, 7 May. As previously communicated, this means all students must wear their blazer to and from school every day. Long trousers are compulsory for students in Years 11 and 12 while younger grades are welcome to wear either shorts or trousers.

 Saturday Uniform 

The uniform standard was generally good last Saturday. Can I remind the community that boys need to wear the correct Football or Tennis playing attire and if they are intending on watching the 1st XI after their game, they need to change into the formal school uniform which includes the white shirt.

Dean of Identity | Mr Charles Brauer

Presence. Compassion. Liberation.

During May, we celebrate the Month of Mary, Feast of Blessed Edmund Rice and Mothers’ Day. As a Catholic School in the Edmund Rice tradition, such a time is a wonderful opportunity for our Terrace Family to celebrate our identity and the important role mothers play within our community.

Tomorrow morning, the students and staff of the College will gather for a whole school Mass in the Campbell Centre to give thanks for the life of Blessed Edmund Rice and the gifts of the Christian Brothers. As we gather, we will take a moment to consider the other 170 000 students, from five other continents, who will also gather tomorrow to celebrate the life and spirit of our common founder, Blessed Edmund Rice. Tomorrow, we will be galvanised in celebrations with students and teachers of schools in North America, South America, Ireland, England, East Africa, West Africa, Southern Africa, India, and New Zealand.

As members of a Catholic school in the Edmund Rice tradition, we are challenged to be stewards of Ricean education, expressing this identity in an authentic and relevant manner. Whilst we live in another millennium, on another continent and within a society with new challenges, the essence of Ricean education remains as relevant as ever before. Ricean education is based on the presence of walking with others, compassion for the hopes and challenges of others and the liberation from our mutual fears and limitations. 

We are present to each other when we take the time to listen without judgement, correction or suggestion.We are compassionate to each other when we place the needs of others before our own needs.We liberate others when we encourage them to leave behind self-doubt and fears, acting as catalysts for others to realise their true potential.

The foundations of Ricean spirituality have been strongly influenced by women, including Edmund’s mother, Nano Nagle (Founder of the Presentation Sisters) and St Teresa of Avila. In conjunction with tomorrow’s Blessed Edmund Rice Feast Day Mass, throughout May there will be Tuesday morning Masses dedicated to mothers. These Masses, celebrated for Year 12 students and their mothers or carers, will be held in thanksgiving for the sacred relationship of mother and son. 

Happy Blessed Edmund Rice Feast Day for Sunday 5 May.

Live, Jesus, in our hearts…..forever!

This time next week, our Middle School Musical actors will be playing their opening night!  We are very proud of these young men, many of whom have not acted or danced before.  The Production Team are very proud to announce that Saturday night’s show is sold out – congratulations!  There are less than 60 tickets left for the other two shows.  The young men would love to play to a full house every night so please go to www.trybooking.com/BBQMD to secure your tickets.

We are very grateful to the many parents who have helped us with this musical. To these parents – we sincerely say, Thank You.

Director of Music | Mr Jan Hewerdine

ANZAC Day march

Our sincere thanks again to all the boys who participated in the ANZAC Day march through the city. On the first time around, the Governor called me over to convey his appreciation for our turnout. The band numbered 120 on the day, which was by far the largest band. Congratulations to all students and thank you to all Music staff for your investment into this important event.

Congratulations also to the Waterford Strings for their performance on College Assembly this week. Next week, the Symphonic Wind Ensemble will be performing.

Music Practice Hall

A reminder that Music Practice Hall is held on Mondays from 3.15-5pm. We encourage you to support this unique opportunity on a regular basis, where your sons can practice with guided supervision. This is run by tutors from the Queensland Conservatorium of Music and other tertiary institutions. AMEB candidates please note that these tutors are also on hand to assist with the components of the exams. I encourage students to avail themselves of the service.   

Classroom Music program

At Terrace, we are proud of our Classroom Music program and all that it offers students in Years 5 and 6. As part of the students’ musical journey, opportunities to perform are provided in Terms 2, 3 and 4. The program’s benefactor, Mr Norman Clarke, who has invested considerable ongoing funding to make the program what it is, has had the Norman Clarke Concert named after him. This annual event brings the premier ensembles and choir together into one venue. As a first, we have decided this year to include Year 5 Classroom Music students as part of this prestigious event.  This will be held in the Hanrahan Theatre at Villanova College on Sunday 9 June. Parents are invited to attend the concert. Not only will it provide your sons with their first public appearance as musicians, but it will also show both them and yourselves what the future will bring, as they develop on their musical journey. Timings for this event will be released shortly, but the performance itself is held in the afternoon. Soon the boys will be rehearsing the repertoire for this concert, so please encourage your son to practice often. We are looking forward to seeing them amaze you, when their collective efforts all come together on the day.

The Weekly Wrap

Congratulations

Congratulations to Jock Millar (Year 9) who has been named on the Queensland Schools Baseball team. Jock will travel to Canberra for the tournament from 4-7 October this year. Jock was presented with the ‘Golden Arm’ pitching award for the best pitching stats for the tournament.  During the presentations, he also received an ‘honourable mention’ for placing second for the best batting for the tournament.  He played well and was the opening pitcher for Metropolitan North in the grand final against South Coast.  He pitched five innings and Metropolitan North were ahead when the closing pitcher came in. Unfortunately, the Metropolitan North team went down in a tight tussle. 

Football Wrap

Terrace Football had a great day at TGS for the opening round of the competition. Playing away at TGS in Round 1 was never going to be easy, with multiple factors to consider in ensuring the best possible preparation. The results on the day showed the level of competition, with ten wins two draws and nine losses across the program in Toowoomba. The boys should all be very proud of the way they represented Terrace on the day. We showed a mix of great talent, good technical aspects and sportsmanship to round out a great first week. 

Mr Mitchell Edwards, Director of Football

1st XI

The 1sts kicked off the season with a very hard fought 3-0 win over TGS away from home. Terrace drew first blood after some good work by Chris Morseray to score his first goal in GPS Football. Toowoomba were sparked into life after conceding and made life difficult for the Terrace defence. Some fine goalkeeping from Aymeric Morgan and stout defending from Josah Hitchcock and Nathan Hiller, and a little bit of luck, kept them out. 
However, you earn your luck through good commitment and honest hard work and we went to the dressing rooms at half-time with our one goal lead intact. After the break, the boys were much more composed and dealt comfortably with everything the opposition mustered. Further goals to Keogh Lewis and Malakai Love-Semira put the game beyond doubt and rounded out a very solid opening game. 

Mr John Kosmina, 1st XI Football Coach

Gymnastics Wrap

On the weekend, The Terrace Gymnasts attended the first GPS lead up meet at BBC. It was a great day with over 100 gymnasts in attendance from Brisbane Boys’ College, Gregory Terrace, Nudgee, The Southport School, Brisbane Grammar and Brisbane State High School. It was a warm weekend and a great day for gymnastics, with some outstanding efforts across the board. Special mention goes to the Division 3 gymnasts and the support they showed for the other teams, particularly BBC. Unfortunately, at this stage, we were unable to field full teams across the board, but the program is slowly building.  

Thank you to Lachlan Mitchell for all his coaching efforts and Sean Coman and Patrick Gleeson for their leadership in the Division 1 competition. With our second lead up meet occurring this weekend at BBC and hosted by TSS, we look forward to seeing you all there ready to compete and support. 

Ms Cerene Hughes
Gymnastics Coordinator 

Tennis Wrap

Round 1

This week, Terrace Tennis teams play GPS Tennis powerhouse Brisbane Boys College in Round 2 of the GPS Tennis competition while some of our teams will play supplementary or internal matches as we strive to provide the most competitive matches we possibly can. 

The results from Round 1 against Toowoomba Grammar were excellent. Across the board, we saw competitive matches played throughout the whole program. Well done to the teams who played up a level with a special mention going to the 6C, 6D, 6E, 8E and 8F teams who competed so well against the higher ranked teams. It is nice to win, but winning the right way will continue to be the focus. The respect and sportsmanship on display was of the highest standard and we will use this round as the bench mark for the remaining season.

Well done to the Year 5 boys who represented Terrace Tennis for the first time, and to the other students from different year levels who have joined the program. It was fantastic to see so many boys on court enjoying playing the game of tennis which is truly a sport that can be played for life

Results: 1st IV and 2nd IV v TGS 
1st IV 8/16/96 TGS 0/0/9
2nd IV 6/12/72 TGS 0/0/12

A brilliant performance by the 1st IV and 2nd IV teams saw both teams taking out their respective ties comprehensively. All boys played to their ability, which was most pleasing. The strength of the team is the squad and having the boys train and play together has been an important part of the preseason. 

The quality of the tennis this weekend will be as good as you get at Opens level and we strongly encourage those wishing to support, to come over to the courts on Brisbane Boys College campus. BBC have only lost one 1st IV match in four years and that was against Terrace in 2018; one of the biggest upsets in recent years. For the squad to do this again, any support would be gratefully received.

Captains’ Corner | Vice Captain, Thomas Woodrow

On 6 September 1992, two moose hunters who were trekking deep into the unforgiving Alaskan wilderness stumbled across the lifeless, rotting corpse of an unknown man hidden inside an abandoned bus. The find sparked a nationwide investigation across the USA as to who this man was. The answer: Christopher Johnson McCandless, a 24 year old tramp who had been missing for the past two years. However, Chris wasn’t kidnapped, murdered or the victim of any crime, he had simply chosen to leave his privileged life in Washington DC behind to set off on his ‘great Alaskan adventure’.

Backtrack two years and you will find that during his time at home, Chris was always the type of person who walked past a stranger on the street and gave them a smile. Between the spare hours which weren’t dedicated to study or track running, Chris could be found sacrificing his time feeding the disadvantaged members of his community at the local homeless shelter. Chris was a kind, considerate and selfless gentleman and on top of his goodwill and virtuous character, he was a strong academic whose passions for writing and history saw him accepted into Harvard Law School. However, he never stepped foot within those hallowed grounds because in the months leading up to his first day, Chris donated his $20 000 college fund to UNICEF, abandoned his car and burnt all the cash that he had.

You see, like so many before him, Chris was tired of life as he knew it. He was tired of seeing the poor get forgotten while the rich got richer. He was tired of seeing people treat each other horribly. And he was tired of society. So, inspired by the works of Henry Thoreau, Leo Tolstoy and Jack London, his answer was to leave the society that had haunted him his entire life. 

Chris went Into The Wild. 

And for the two years that he was hitchhiking across the countryside, trekking the wilderness and jumping inside train carriages late at night, Chris experienced the true meaning of life. He discovered the beauty of friendships, the comforts of warm nights sleeping under the stars, the untamed strength of the wild, and above all, he discovered who the man looking back at him in the mirror truly was. Chris had succeeded in what he described as the “climactic battle to kill the false being within and victoriously conclude the spiritual revolution”. But first, to end his spectacular pilgrimage, Chris had to fulfil his lifelong dream to become “lost in the wild”. He wanted to go where no man had been before; one of the most remote and isolated parts of Alaska. And he did. Yet, sadly it was here where he took his last breath.

After four months of battling the Alaskan wilderness, Chris died of starvation. A most tragic end to a man whose life has been praised and scrutinised by the media. Yet, there was one thing that struck a chord within the hearts of nearly everyone who heard Chris’ story; it was a simple phrase that he etched upon the walls of the bus that he was found inside.

“Happiness is only real when shared” – Christopher McCandless

Despite living happily by himself in one of the most isolated places in the world, Chris came to the realisation that human company was the most important thing to life. Relationships with people, both loved ones and strangers, are paramount to  person’s sense of happiness. Happiness can only be real, if it is shared.

Chris’ life, though extremely complex and unique, can easily be linked back to life at Terrace. Through some of his final words, Chris teaches us that happiness and satisfaction will only come when we step outside our comfort zones and form relationships with people we once might never have thought to speak to. By doing this, we guarantee that we, as a school community, can come together and share in the happiness that Christopher McCandless searched so long for.

God Bless
