Principal’s Message | Dr Michael Carroll

Dear members of the Terrace Family,

At the Academic Assembly on Tuesday, 337 young men were presented with Academic Medals in recognition of their academic achievements in Semester 2 2018.  These young men worked very hard to gain these excellent results and I congratulate each of them for this.  I also wish to acknowledge the efforts of the teachers and the parents who supported, guided and nurtured these young men last year – thank you.  The key to success at Terrace is the strong partnership between staff, parents and students.

Keeping with the academic theme, I was privileged to attend the QCAA Achievement Awards on Saturday, where 30 of Queensland’s top Year 12 students from 2018 were presented with an award.  Terrace was very well represented with Ben Panizza, Dom Previtera and Tom Waldie receiving awards. This was an outstanding effort from these young men, their families and our College and further reinforced the strong ‘Culture of Learning’ that permeates throughout Terrace. Congratulations to Ben, Dom and Tom.

Finally on the academic theme, in The Sunday Mail on 17 February, details of the 2018 OP results were published.  Much of the data pertaining to Terrace has already been communicated to our community.  However, to be ranked number five in Queensland with 49% of the cohort receiving an OP 1-5 is further recognition of how well the 2018 cohort performed.  Well done gentlemen.

Last Friday, the first of the Inter-House championships was held with the Swimming Carnival at Centenary Pool.  Thank you to all involved in staging this successful event.  It was another excellent example of the Terrace Family in action.  Congratulations and thank you to the staff involved, the House Deans, and in particular, the Year 12 students from each House.  Congratulations to Barrett House for winning the carnival.

The GPS Season continues with many boys involved each weekend.  Congratulations to our debaters who recorded a successful round against Nudgee College, winning 13 out of 16 debates, including the Senior A team.  Well done gentlemen.

The Parent Information Evenings have now concluded.  I thank the parents for attending, the TLG for their hospitality, and in particular, the College Leadership Team for their support of these evenings.  I trust the nights were of assistance to you in gaining an insight into the year ahead for your sons.

Late last week, Mr Chris Ryan’s father had a bad fall resulting in serious injuries including a broken hip. Chris’s dad will be hospitalised for some time. As a result of this accident and the need to relocate his father and brother into their new accommodation, Chris will need to be on leave for the remainder of the term, as of this Friday. Mr Damien Fall will assume the role of Deputy Principal, as well as retaining the role of Dean of Communication. To assist with this change, a number of duties normally undertaken by Chris will be distributed to other members of the CLT. 

I take this opportunity to wish Chris all the best in this difficult time and know that your good wishes go with him.

Finally this week, on Monday night I attended the annual GPS Music Showcase where students and staff from the nine member schools combined to perform some outstanding music.  Congratulations to the Terrace students and staff who were involved.  Our Director of Culture, Mr Matt Cocking, was Chair of the organising committee.  Well done Matt.

Have a great week.
God Bless.

Staff News

The College is currently recruiting for the position of Director of Sport, to commence in Term 2. The details for this are on the College website under About Us/Jobs at Terrace. We have also made the decision to introduce a new position at the College in the form of a Human Resources Manager. The specifics of the position are currently under development and this staff member will work under my direction as Deputy Principal, with Mr Adam Read as Dean of Business Operations and Ms Katie White as Manager of Compliance. We hope to have recruited for this position by Easter.

Congratulations to Mrs Monica Keating who became a first-time grandmother recently to Colbie, a beautiful little girl.

We pray for Mr James Turner and his family after the recent passing of his much loved brother Andrew. We warmly welcome Mr Turner back to the College after some important sacred time with his family and will continue to support him in his journey. May Andrew Rest in Peace and the Turner family find comfort in the loving embrace of our God.

My own Father has had a serious accident at home in Toowoomba last week and will be hospitalised for an extended period with a broken hip and femur. I have a brother in Toowoomba who also needs a lot of special support, especially at this time. As Dr Carroll has indicated in his article, this situation has necessitated my taking leave for the rest of this term and moving to Toowoomba to assist my family. I have been overwhelmed by the support offered by the College Leadership Team and staff and I thank everyone, especially Mr Damien Fall, who will act as Deputy Principal while I am away. It is very comforting to know that I am a member of a strong and faithful community at times such as this. I wish everyone a very successful and enjoyable term and I hope to be back at the commencement of Term 2.

Dean of Studies | Mr Mason Hellyer

Success is what you make of it.

There are many quotes that attempt to define success. Many refer to the attainment of a physical object; a gold medal, a championship ring, money. Some refer to the attainment of intangibles such as power or influence. These definitions all refer to external rewards as measures of success.

External rewards are very powerful as they provide a focus or an outcome goal to strive towards. Tuesday’s Academic Awards Assembly was a wonderful opportunity to recognise the achievements of our students. At Terrace, the award recipients made the decision to commit to their studies, followed up on their commitment with hard work and have been rewarded with excellent results and an academic medal. 

The academic award is an external recognition of success. However, the majority of the boys awarded have been motivated by the internal desire to succeed. I see these award winners as a success, our Diligence and Improvement award winners are a success and our 2018 median OP6 student who was offered the University course of his choice is also an example of this success.

At Terrace we intentionally challenge every boy to be a success, or more specifically, to be the best he can be. Whilst I might aspire to be a medallist in the Snowboard Slopestyle at the Olympics, I know I may just miss out at present. However, that does not stop me from being the best I can be.

Remember, as 2018 College Dux Jacob Montaner said at the Scholars Assembly:

Motivation leads to hard work, and hard work leads to success.

Dean of Students | Mr Damien Cuddihy

Many thanks to those parents who attended the Parent/Mentor meetings last week. Developing positive relationships within our community is central to the 'Atmosphere of Care' philosophy at the College. I hope that you found this opportunity to share information about your son fruitful. 

On Wednesday evening, we held the annual Year 8 Father/Son evening at the College. Whilst media attention often feasts on the reality that some famous sportsmen and celebrities fall short of being good ‘role-models’ to our boys, we are confident that some of the best role models are much closer to home. I hope all those involved walked away feeling reassured that your sons are able to speak up and share insights about their life. 

A major focus at the College this week has been raising awareness of the route students are required to take when walking to the Fortitude Valley train station. The practice of running across St Paul’s Terrace and Gipps Street is very dangerous. All students accessing the immediate vicinity of the Valley station must cross St Paul's Terrace by using the pedestrian crossing at the ‘Five Ways’.

The Inter-House Swimming Carnival last week was reflective of everything that is good about the House system at Terrace. Whilst to the untrained eye, the day can look somewhat chaotic, the Seniors were brilliant in running the activities within their Houses. On numerous occasions, various interactions brought a smile to my face. Seniors swimming behind Year 5s who were worried about making the 50m, buddies walking back to the College together after the carnival having a chat or just the hype generated around the relays was most pleasing. Congratulations to Barrett House for winning the carnival and to Magee and Kearney for the minor places. Our next major House event is the Inter-House Cross Country in Week 2 of Term 2. 

Dean of Identity | Mr Charles Brauer

“Spirit of Service”
The recent Parent Information Nights, staff meetings and College Assemblies have provided our Identity team with the opportunity to share with our Terrace Family the array of Service Ministry opportunities available to our Terracians. Each opportunity is an integral feature of our Terrace Gentleman Formation program (as outlined in the below Formation Spiral), designed to provide our young men with an avenue to develop the 'spirit of service' that our College Mission calls them to.

Participation in the below programs is strongly encouraged. Already, various staff have been in contact with your sons to invite their participation. Key staff for programs are listed below:

  • Big Brekky: Mr Chris Zammit
  • Sustainability at Terrace: Mr Chris Zammit
  • Edmund Rice Advocacy: Mr Andrew Stormonth
  • Year 5 and 6 opportunities: Mr Brendan Ganley
  • Year 10 opportunities: Mr Luke Gribble
  • House Friendships: Relevant House Dean

The Good News of Terrace: Kolega Café opens its doors on Friday morning

Director of Culture | Mr Matt Cocking

New Staff Profile 

Old Boy Mr Hughston Parle – GT 2018, Chess Head Coach

Hughston is the two-time Queensland Junior Chess Champion, and founder of the Brisbane Junior Chess League. He was recently appointed as Head Coach at Terrace for 2019. With over five years experience in chess coaching and a position on the CAQ (Chess Association of Queensland) council, he plans to make Terrace the top school in the GPS. 

The Terrace family is very lucky to have someone like Hughston returning to the College and working with our students.

GPS Music Showcase 

Monday night was a very special event where over 300 students from all nine GPS schools took to the stage together in Choir, Concert Band and Symphony Orchestra at the Queensland Performing Arts Centre. Amongst these elite musicians were 20 Terracians representing Terrace and Terrace Music. This performance was attended by a large audience of over 800 parents and past students. Thank you to everyone who came. If you would like to be on the future email list please contact  

State Debating Team Trials

Congratulations to the Terrace Debaters who were selected to be in Round 2 of the State Debating Trials. We look forward to reporting further on their success:

  • Scott Moran
  • Declan Hackett
  • Eden Chan
  • Noah Stevens
  • Luke Ames
  • Alex Sullivan

Debating Workshops 

The first Debating Seminar for the season was held on 12 February. Hosted every month, the Terrace Skills and Training Coordinator and Senior A Coach, Ms Chantel Morris, runs these sessions to facilitate student led improvement across all year levels. In the first session, they talked about the feedback that different teams had received in Round 1 of GPS, then tackled problems that students had identified, such as: how to use rebuttal to win debates, how to win empirical debates, and how to use preparation time strategically to help with Round 2. These sessions allow students to reflect on past debates and develop strategies to improve on particular aspects of their speeches in a collaborative space. The next debating seminar will be on 12 March from 3.30-5pm. Students are welcome to send through ideas and feedback to Chantel:

The first GPS Debate for 5.1

Support Group Meetings

Debating Support Group - Tuesday 5 March, 5.30pm in the Old Boys’ Room

Terrace Performing Arts – Tuesday 5 March, 5.30pm in the Callan Centre

Acting Director of Music | Mr Jan Hewerdine

Congratulations to the Waterford Soloists, under the direction of Mrs Kelly for their performance at the Academic Medals Assembly on Tuesday. A further thank you to our String Department for the workshop held last Sunday at the College.

Thank you as well to Mrs Debattista, Mr Esbensen and choristers for the musical support at the GTOBA Mass last Sunday.

GPS Music Showcase

The 2019 GPS Music Showcase was held on Monday 18 February at QPAC. This event began with a day of music making, culminating in performances by students from all nine GPS schools in Choir, Symphony Orchestra and Concert Band. Terrace was well represented in all three groups. Well done to all and thank you to those families who came along to this event on the night.

Year 5 Classroom Music

Year 5 Classroom Music students have now commenced the theory component of the subject. This is done online through software and is self-paced, with targets set for each term. Please encourage your sons to practice every day. Success in playing a musical instrument comes from regular application over a long period of time. At the beginner level, 10 to 15 minutes, four or more days per week will see your boys achieve amazing things quickly.  Our experience has shown that tenacity and consistency are much stronger predictors of success than talent.

State Honours Program

The Queensland Conservatorium Griffith University is pleased to present the inaugural State Honours Ensemble Program (SHEP) Middle School - South-East Queensland from Friday 31 May to Sunday 2 June, to be held at Queensland Conservatorium's South Bank campus in Brisbane. SHEP provides an opportunity for middle school (Years 5 - 8) 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 the 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 program for high school students. For more information please visit  or email

Terrace App

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.

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 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

The Weekly Wrap

Cricket Wrap

Round 3 of GPS Cricket saw the long-standing rivalry of Terrace and Nudgee recommence in what was a fantastic display of schoolboy Cricket at both Tennyson and Nudgee College. Terrace also played a number of supplementary matches against Toowoomba Grammar School, St Laurence’s College, Anglican Church Grammar School and Brisbane Grammar School, in what was another great weekend on and off the field for the Cricket program.

Terrace had an exceptional day in terms of results, winning 23 of 31 matches against Nudgee College. Although the program doesn’t base itself on results, this result against a strong sporting college highlights the dedication and commitment of all the players, coaches, managers and parent groups in the Terrace Cricket community. Including the supplementary matches, Terrace won a total of 63% of matches played on Saturday, which is a great result considering the majority of matches in the supplementary draw were played against a higher graded team. 

Only three weeks into the 2019 Season and it is encouraging to see the skills developed during the Term 4 preseason program as well as the holiday training clinics transferring into match play, with a number of fantastic individual performances in all age groups over the weekend. Most pleasing from a program point of view is seeing students achieving their individual best.

This weekend sees half of the program play Brisbane State High School, in what are traditionally tough matches for the A-B program. Once again, a number of supplementary matches will be played, giving all teams cricketing opportunities. The program looks forward to all teams playing in the Terrace Way this Saturday - hard but fair.

Rowing Wrap

NC Regatta I 23 February I Wyaralong 

The GPS Rowing Regatta season recommences this weekend after a short hiatus with Nudgee College hosting this week's regatta as we enter the final month of the 2019 Season. It will be quite exciting to see how each Terrace crew performs in their first race after the two week training block.

• Remember all race results are posted immediately after each race on the Rowing Queensland website ( under '2019 Regatta Calendar'.
• All boys are required back at Tennyson for Boat Unloading by 2.30pm

Friendly Reminder

• Regatta Car Parking:
The host school of each GPS Regatta is responsible for car parking duties including collection of the $5/car fee. Please ensure you have cash ready to pay at the collection point.

Supporters of Terrace Rowing

As we approach the Head of the River Regatta, your support of the races at each lead up regatta is important, especially for our rowers in the Open Age Group. Could we please ensure all boys stay behind to support the older boys as they have done in the previous years. The unique nature of being a club is that all boys support each other, no matter what age group they are in.

Speed Boat driver

Each school is tasked to provide a speed boat driver(s) for each regatta. If you can assist please contact me by email or mobile. It is a great chance to be up close to the crews racing.  

Head of the River Dinner and Awards Night  

To celebrate 65 years of Terrace Rowing, the Head of the River Dinner and Awards Night will be held this year at the Royal International Convention Centre at the RNA Showgrounds on 16 March. It promises to be a very enjoyable evening with a number of special guests and auction prizes. A formal invitation will be available shortly via College Events to enable you to purchase your tickets.

Terrow Monthly Meeting 

The next Terrow monthly meeting will be held this Tuesday, 19 February at the main school staff room located adjacent to the Victoria Street main entrance at 6pm. 

Volleyball Wrap

Round 2 saw Terrace Volleyball heading to BBC. As expected, BBC were very strong on their home courts and despite a number of matches requiring a deciding third set, many teams struggled to close out games. 

The 7As started both sets strongly against a very consistent BBC team, but struggled to control some tough serves and went down 2-0. Despite narrowly dropping the first set, the 8As forced a third set only to lose by a mere couple of points. Nicholas Wilson-Boyd was named MVP for his control of the back court. After a shaky start, the 9As also headed to a third set, and were down 13-10 until EJ Luafalealo went back to serve aces that helped clinch the win 15-13. The 10As were in for a hotly contested match with plenty of energy, and despite huge attacks from Benjamin Chatwood, were unable to close out the game in the third. Archie Hanson helped the 11As pull through in the third set to win 2-1. The 2nd VI battled through to a third set after coming from behind to win the second set. However, they were unable to close out the match. 

Finally, despite the mammoth support from the Red and Black Army, the 1st VI went down 3-0 to a strong BBC team. The Firsts matched BBC point for point during the first two sets, but some errors crept in during the third set. This match only gives the Firsts motivation to continue to work hard and improve throughout the season. James Sheehan was named MVP for his strong presence on the net. We eagerly await Round 3 and look to improve on these results next weekend when we take on State High.

Captains’ Corner | Vice Captain, Angus White

Last Friday’s Swimming Carnival served like it always does, as a fantastic opportunity to galvanise friendships within the House, as well as to contest Inter-House rivalries. After a hot 31 degree day, with hundreds of boys packed into the grandstands at Centenary Pool, Barrett House won the spoils for 2019. 

I think most of Barrett’s success can largely be attributed to the spirit of their Senior cohort who supported every year group with passion and encouragement. Patrick Monckton deserves special praise. Pat spent the majority of his day not only encouraging boys at the starting blocks, but he stood beside the younger kids, walking the length of the 50m pool all day. Pat’s unsung efforts were matched by many loyal and enthusiastic Seniors participating for their last time in a memorable and enjoyable College event.

Another proud moment was to witness Charlie Condon’s (Year 12 Buckley) contribution during the Year 7 50m freestyle race. During the race, the pressure of the day got to one of the students participating. Despite the student being from a different House, Charlie instinctively dived into the pool and swam alongside the student for the entire 50m, offering encouragement and pushing him along. Pat and Charlie, along with many others last Friday, lived up to the adage that without a sense of caring, there can be no sense of community. They exemplified the best of the school motto, All In. 

The Swimming Carnival is a great community event. We wish the swimming team selected all the very best at the GPS Championships in a few weeks. Term 1 activities, not just Swimming, are well and truly in full swing – Cricket, Rowing, Debating and Volleyball. All fantastic opportunities to get involved and truly go All In.

Terrace Ladies Group

Years 5 – 9 Mothers' Morning Tea

On Friday 3 May (Week 2, Term 2) we will hold the Years 5 – 9 Mothers’ Morning Tea in the Victoria Park Golf Club marquee. This event was held for the first time two years ago and it was such a success that it is now an annual event. The nearly 400 ladies who attended all agree that it was a fabulous morning for connecting with other ladies in our sons’ year groups. The term “friendraiser” is the theme of the day and it certainly is all of that. Planning is well underway for this year’s event. More details will be coming over the following weeks with invitations being emailed before the end of term. 

Ticket sales will be via the Events page on the College website and of course it is always a good idea to get in early to avoid the disappointment of missing out. 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 placing ladies at tables to ensure you have a wonderful time together. 

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. 

Parent Directory

There are still spaces throughout the electronic Parent Directory on the Parent Lounge.  I am sending out another reminder to parents yet 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 Rachel McGahon: Please also ensure that you save this email address into your contacts as it may find its way to junk mail.
