Principal's Message | Acting Principal, Mr Chris Ryan

A warm welcome back for the final term for the year. I particularly acknowledge our Year 12 gentlemen who are commencing the final leg of their schooling journey. I encourage them to strive to be the best that they can be right through until their final moments in the red and black and to embrace and enjoy this phase of hard work, friendship and transition.

We also welcome back to the College our Year 10 fellows from their Immersion experiences. In the Gospel, we learn that Jesus put his Disciples “out into the deep to be fishers of people”. The Immersion experience is designed to be an out into the deep journey where the other is encountered. This week, I have discussed the framework of WHAT, SO WHAT, WHAT NOW? With the Year 10 group. How can they apply their learnings now in the every day and the ordinary as Terracians? We look forward to benefitting from their growth.

This week we welcome back to the College after some leave, Mr Geoff Ludlow, Mrs Loren Serafin-Huey, Mrs Kathy Wilson, Mrs Cath Griffin, Mrs Jan Cameron and Mrs Tracey McIvor.

We look forward to welcoming the Year 7 class of 2018 at their Orientation Evening tonight. This evening also continues the leadership journey of our Year 11 students as they prepare to be the Seniors of 2018. Thank you in anticipation for the fine job they will do as buddies. On Friday, we will conclude the first week of the term with the final Inter-House event for the year with our annual Athletics Carnival to be held at Tennyson. Parents are most welcome to visit!

Term 3 reports will be available in Parent Lounge during the afternoon on Friday of this week. As always, we encourage parents to sit with their son and discuss this feedback. It is important to celebrate achievements both big and small and to reflect on growth opportunities together and develop plans. I know as a parent myself I can be guilty of not being as fresh in Term 4 as I am in Term 1. It is vital that we continue to work together in supporting the boys in their habits and routines. As always, please feel welcome to be in contact with your son’s teachers and key staff.

Unfortunately, the Terrace Family Night scheduled for this Friday evening will not proceed. However, the student artwork will be displayed in College Hall. We welcome parents to visit College Hall during the week at drop off or pick up or during the day to share in the creativity of the boys. There are always some special surprises. Thank you to the Art Department for their coordination of this. Thank you to the Cardinals Support Group for their facilitation of the College Art Union and to Hyundai for their wonderful support of the College. Funds raised are distributed according to need across the College for special projects. Thank you to all of our sponsors and donors and the extended community for your support. The Art Union will be drawn this Friday and lucky winners contacted.

Dr Carroll has greatly enjoyed his study and travel in Europe and has now returned to Australia. We look forward to his return in Week 3 of this term.

With best wishes

Mr Chris Ryan

College Dean | Acting College Dean, Mr Damien Fall

Welcome to Term 4, a time of the academic year that we know to be especially busy, given the brevity of the term and the amount that we need to fit into it. Dr Carroll remains on leave for the first two weeks of term with Mr Chris Ryan as Acting College Principal. For this period, I will continue to act as College Dean, Mr Damien Cuddihy as Dean of Students, Mr Mason Hellyer as Dean of Waterford Place and Mr Rob Sweeper as Head of Faculty, Human Movements. This week, we welcomed back staff who were on leave for all or part of Term 3: Mr Geoff Ludlow, Mrs Loren Serafin-Huey, Mrs Jan Cameron, Mrs Kathy Wilson, Mrs Cath Griffin and Mrs Tracey McIvor. I trust that their return to school this week has been gentle.

The holidays were a sad time for Mr Chris Ryan, with his mum, Maureen, becoming gravely ill before passing away last Saturday night. Please keep Maureen, Chris and the extended Ryan family in your thoughts and prayers at this tough time. In happier news, Mr Anthony Baruksopulo celebrated his marriage late last term and we pass on our congratulations and best wishes.

The introduction of the new system of Senior assessment is approaching. Our current Year 9 students are due to be the first graduates under the new system which sees them complete external examinations and exit with an ATAR, rather than an OP score. This is the most significant academic change in Queensland in my 25 years as an educator. Accordingly, the College recognises the need to be thoroughly prepared for this new system. A large part of our preparation involves the professional development of staff. The College has committed significant time and funding towards ensuring our staff, programs and systems are ready when this change takes place. This Friday, while the Inter-House Track and Field carnival takes place, our Heads of Faculty will spend a day planning for the implementation of the new system.

This Saturday, the College will be participating in an event known as Brisbane Open House, a public festival that invites Brisbane residents to view significant architecture across the city. The Treacy Building and Waterford Place are two of 90 buildings across the city that will be open for inspection to members of the public. We are proud to be invited to participate. All the very best to everyone in our community for the term ahead.

Dean of Studies | Mrs Julie Quinn

Welcome back to our final term of the year after, what I trust, has been a restful break following a very busy Term 3.

Academic Outcomes from Term 3

Reports will be uploaded electronically to Parent Lounge tomorrow showing the academic outcomes from last term. These outcomes include the Term 3 result for each subject, the cumulative result for Terms 1, 2 and 3 in each subject, and a grade of either “satisfactory” or “not satisfactory” for behaviour, homework and application. Indication may also be given to parents that an interview is required as a follow up to these outcomes. Parents are encouraged to make contact with the teacher where this request has been made.

The results from Term 3 have been analysed and will be reported back to each year level in their specific year level assembly. These summaries are specific to each year level and this sharing of information is designed to inform and motivate students to strive for excellence and improvement. Recognition of individual students who have made significant improvement is made at these assemblies.

OP Estimated Scores

Both Year 11 and Year 12 students will be given updated estimated OP scores that are based upon their most recent cumulative results. These estimated scores will be given to the Year 12 students by their academic mentor and by House Deans to the Year 11 students. I would encourage parents to have a conversation with their sons about this interview.

Evening of Excellence – Academic Excellence Awards

The cumulative results across Terms 1, 2 and 3 are used to select students who are the dux of a subject and also students who will receive an award for academic excellence. The minimum requirement for academic excellence for each year level is as follows- Years 5, 6, 7 and 8 require minimum of 7 As , Years 9 and 10 require a minimum of 6 As and Years 11 and 12 require a minimum of 5 As - all based upon a cumulative result across three terms.

We are again, most encouraged by the number of students who will be recognised on this evening. To witness over a quarter of our total students receive an award for academic excellence is a great tribute to the academic culture of the school. In particular, it is a wonderful recognition and celebration of the commitment from students, staff and families to seek the very best outcomes for our boys.

Term 4

Just a reminder to all students that Term 4 is only eight weeks in duration. Assessment calendars have been issued to all boys and the “checklist” outlines the requirements for the term ahead. I encourage all families to ensure that these details are noted and that a study plan for the term is established this week.

Study group for Year 11 students will take place in room 323 every afternoon after school from 3.15 to 5.30 pm; Year 12 study group will take place in room 423 every afternoon from 3.15 to 5.30 pm. The library is also open until 4.30 pm.

Dean of Students | Acting Dean of Students, Mr Damien Cuddihy

Welcome to Term 4 after what was a particularly nasty flu season here at Terrace. I hope that all of our families were able to enjoy the September break and I trust that our young men have returned feeling rested and full of enthusiasm for the final term of the year. A quick look at the calendar indicates that this will be a short term, meaning there is no time to waste; students have heard the message that they need to get down to work immediately.

This Friday we hold our annual Inter-House Track and Field carnival. The day will include a range of fun events culminating in the much anticipated all age House relay. As with all House events, the focus is on participation, fun and House connection. On this day, all students are asked to wear their House sports uniform to school. It is an expectation that every student who is physically able to do so, completes in all events for his House. This is an enjoyable, important and compulsory day for all students and I look forward to everyone attending and participating to the best of their ability.

A reminder that this month’s TerraceSchool TV topic looks at the impact of gambling in the sports marketing industry. Many of our students are particularly vulnerable to marketing tactics and this is greatly concerning. It is having a major impact on the way in which young people think about the relationship between gambling and sport. The 'normalisation' of sports betting is posing a threat to Australian teenagers. Many parents have found this resource to be particularly insightful across a range of topics specific to adolescence. The link to TerraceSchool TV can be found here.

This term, we continue to push the message about road safety. Students have been asked to ensure they only cross roads at designated crossings, even if it means walking slightly further to do so. The welfare of students is our top priority and we need them to help by making good decisions when it comes to their safety. I look forward to a positive and highly successful fourth term for all members of our community.

Dean of Identity | Mr Charles Brauer

From Thanksgiving to Legacy

The first days of term are always a special time for our College community, particularly with respect to greeting the smiling faces of our young men who are energised to tackle the challenges of the term ahead. For me, this is valuable time to meet with all students and affirm their commitment, challenge their perspective and orientate them around some key focus areas.

This week Iwould like to share with you the key messages I shared with each year level at their respective assemblies this week.

Years 5 and 6: Thanksgiving

Experiencing the first year at Terrace as a Year 5 students and transitioning into the next phase of a Terrace education as a Year 6 student are both special times for our youngest Terracians. We spent some still and quiet time reflecting on a key experience of gratitude and the people who made this possible, allowing us to recognise the opportunities that await us this term.

Years 7 and 8: The Spirit of Service

Enacting a ‘spirit of service’ was celebrated at the Years 7 and 8 Assemblies, particularly regarding how they have embrace our ongoing friendship with the Timorese by committing to the Kolega Café for the past 18 months. We honed in on our Formation Spiral and the concept of acting justly as a means of making a difference in our world.

Year 9: Leading Change

Empowering our young men with the confidence and ability to be effective leaders was the focus for our Year 9 Assembly. The leading of our 'Sustainability at Terrace' initiative was presented to our young men as an opportunity for them to enact their leadership aspirations and abilities. They were invited to sign up for the Sustainability at Terrace initiative.

Year 10: Learnings of Presence

With immersion remaining fresh in the hearts and minds of our Year 10s, we addressed the concept of ‘presence’ with others as a vehicle for strengthening relationships and mutual self-actualisation. We reviewed the role of tourist, partner and pilgrim and how we are challenged with ‘walking as pilgrim’ as an expression of Catholicity, and that of a Terrace Gentleman.

Year 12: The Legacy of 18 000 Strong

Our Senior class have done a wonderful job in translating the ‘legacy’ message of their 18 000 Strong leadership into reality. We took time to reflect on Day 1, Day 283 (today) and Day 328 (their final day) and the positive impressions they are leaving and the opportunity to deepen these impressions in their final term.

I wish all members of our Terrace Family all the very best for the term ahead as we advance together towards the season of Advent.

Years 7, 8 and 9 Program Leader | Mr Damien Coman

If you fail to plan, you plan to fail

(John Wooden Former UCLA Basketball Coach).

As I enjoyed watching both Richmond win the AFL grand final and then Melbourne win the NRL grand final, I knew I wasn’t just watching teams that were talented but also had a very strong work ethic. The story behind the victories is always of more interest to me. Melbourne are renowned for being the epitome of professionalism when it comes to their training, team culture but also the planning by both coaching staff and players. The result seems to be an unstoppable machine, but this is achieved one day at a time with consistency over a season.

As our students look down the remaining seven weeks of a short term they must ensure that the plan is completed early. The boys have the opportunity to do this in their first Formation lesson. They should then put their weekly plan up in front of their study area at home.

All students will receive their checklist booklet which contains all assessment dates and notes the Head of Faculty for all subjects in which students have an exam. A ‘checklist’ is provided and boys should ensure they make their way through this list. Notes on these are then written in the booklet. A student’s study plan needs to reflect this checklist to also indicate when they are revising and what they are revising.

In addition to our study skills in Formation this term, the following topics will also be facilitated:

Year 7 – Emotions, The Adolescent Brain, Anti-Bullying.

Year 8 – Emotional Intelligence, Being a Gentleman, The Perils of Alcohol and Drugs.

Year 9 – Masculinity, John Wooden’s Pyramid of Success.

Director of Culture | Mr Matt Cocking

The Terrace Rock Band at Tennyson

Toowoomba Carnival of Flowers

Well done to the Red Thunder Drumline who performed for 100 000 people who lined the streets as they led hundreds of flowery floats and wound their way through the heart of the city. The Drumline was joined by street performers, carnival characters, incredible inflatables and stilt walkers who escorted the stunning floral floats on their journey to Queens Park in Queensland’s largest street parade.

Drumline and Rock Band

Back in Black was a hit at the GT v BBC home game last term. Each season we plan one game where we will focus large amounts of energy to produce an unforgettable halftime entertainment package and help the players and supporters share a joint love of everything red and black. Back in Black was loud, raw and undoubtedly a great way to link Culture and Sport. It is great to be part of a large team who cohesively work together. Thanks to the musicians, players and supporters.

Terrace Jazz Night – Jailhouse Rock

We invite you all to come and participate in the fun of Terrace Jazz Night on 20 October from 6.30pm. This year we feature Australia's leading Elvis impersonator, Dean Vegas. The event will be held at Bogo Road Gaol and includes a Gaol experience. Tickets will be available shortly via College Events.

Public Speaking championships

The College Public Speaking Championships are being held over this week and next week. I look forward to announcing the Junior, Middle and Senior Public Speaking champions next week.

Debating 2018

Debating 2018 has begun and we are planning a great year culminating in a revamp of the Debating Dinner.

Thank you to the many parents and students who helped at the All British Car Rally on the first weekend of the holidays. This is our annual fund raiser and all funds raised from this day go directly to the families of students who tour. Our next planned tour where these funds will be used is Singapore 2019. It would be expected that all premier ensembles will participate in this tour.

Toowoomba Carnival of Flowers

We had a number musical events taking place throughout the holiday period. For the fourth year running, the Red Thunder Drumline led the street parade through the streets of Toowoomba for their annual Carnival of Flowers event on the first Saturday of the break. Congratulations on a great performance. A number of workshop sessions were also held over the break including Trumpet Camp, for students preparing for their upcoming AMEB exams.

Several of our students represented Terrace at two significant musical events. Firstly, congratulations to Simon Hatton (Year 12) and Charlie Newman (Year 11) who participated in the James Morrison Academy at the Gold Coast. They were two of 19 students from across Queensland, NSW and New Zealand, who were chosen to participate in this workshop and concert with James Morrison and his big band. Secondly, the following students participated in the State Honours Ensemble Program (SHEP) held at the Qld Conservatorium: William Barnett (Year 9), Genos Cheong (Year 12), Peter Ferro (Year 9), Xander Fitzgerald (Year 12), Jack Gardiner (Year 10), Hayden Greer (Year 8), Rory Jennings (Year 9), Ethan Ling (Year 7), Finlay Rodbert (Year 12), Richard Scalia (Year 12), and Hugh Sinclair (Year 11). These young men spent an intensive few days preparing repertoire as part of ensembles formed especially for the event, culminating in a number of concerts at the Conservatorium.

We have a short, but very busy term ahead of us. A full list of events is included at the end of this article and will be updated as required. Could I ask that you respond promptly to Tour notifications emailed via Parent Lounge as we use the information to generate rolls based on the information for accountability purposes. Please keep in mind that it is expected that all members of an ensemble participate in all performances but we understand that from time to time there may be circumstances that prevent attendance. If you are declining a tour, could you also please inform the ensemble director and cc Finally, as these notices only go out to parents, could you please discuss the event with your son to ensure that he has the details entered into his calendar. You and he will be able to view the Event Memo via the Terrace App.

The Terrace Jazz Combo performed on College Assembly this week and next week we will feature the Red Brass Ensemble directed by Mr Adrian Head.

Director of Sport | Mr Damian Wright

Welcome back to Term 4 activities and to the running of one of my favourite activities, the Track and Field championships.

The last of the championships events, Track and Field demonstrates the overall athletic abilities of the schools covering many different disciplines from sprinting, to middle distance, jumps – long, triple and high, and throws.

These different disciplines provide opportunities for many different boys, with different physiques, strengths and endurance skill sets to showcase their talents.

Terrace Track and Field has significantly improved over recent years with increases in participation rates, and performances. Its greatest challenge is its placement in the sporting program at this time of the year.

In 2017, the lead in phase of the larger programs of Cricket, Rowing and Volleyball have modified to allow Track and Field the opportunity to have a clear uninterrupted run into the championships. This is a fair and reasonable way of recognising and valuing every boy in the College as equally important, regardless of their activity and divisional selection.

Term 4 is Track and Field – please be assured that if there is a training clash of any type that priority must be given to Track and Field training.

This is supported by all Activity Coordinators and Head Coaches. No boy will be negatively impacted for Term 1 selections due to his participation in Term 4 Track and Field.

The Weekly Wrap

Representative School Sport Term 4

Terrace students are eligible to trial for selection into District and Met Nth. Regional representative teams in a number of sports. Our primary students nominate via City District and our secondary students via Nth. Independent or in some cases Met Nth. District depending on the sport. Boys will only be nominated if they are of a high standard and meet qualifying times in respective sports.

Direct nominations to Met Nth. Sports are:

  • Water Polo Trial date Friday 27 October – Open to 13-17 years. Nominations close Friday 20 October

For more information relating to upcoming trials please contact: or click on the below link

Thanks for your support.

Track and Field

September has been a busy part of the season for the athletes. A good number of boys competed in the Spring Carnival series held at the University of Queensland. Among the many great results Oliver Seawright’s 8min 57sec 3km race is most worthy of a mention. Oliver, in running this time, has broken the old College record, which had been standing since 2004. Well done Oliver, what a fantastic achievement!

We also continued our training in the September holidays. Thirty boys completed three solid training sessions in Week One and our Track and Field Clinic in Week Two. Thank you to all the boys who attended, we are sure that your hard work will contribute to improved results throughout this term. During our clinic in the second week, the boys received nutritional advice and heard the story of Phillips Idowu (Beijing Olympic Silver Medalist and World Triple Jump Champion 2009). It was a privilege to have two such highly qualified people speak with us and we are sure that the advice that was given can help to optimise performances over the coming years.

With two weeks to go before the Junior GPS Championships and three before Senior GPS we are getting to the business end of the season. This Friday night we are taking part in the TSS Meet at Griffith University on the Gold Coast. I wish all the boys taking part in this meet luck and I look forward to seeing some great performances.

Captain’s Corner | Vice Captain, Jack Kimmins

Firstly, I would like to wish a big welcome back to all members of the Terrace Family as we enter Term 4 for 2017.

As this is my final term as a Terracian, I have been thinking a lot recently about how I can make this term count. But, during a session of extensive soul searching, lying in the sun on Cylinder Beach, I came to a realisation: I was late to the party. Six weeks is all I have left, my time left here is short, the impact I can still make is limited. The time to make it count began much earlier not Term 1 Year 12, not Term 3 Year 10, the time to start making it count was the day I first walked through the Rogers Street gates in January 2013.

This is not to say that I am disappointed in the time that I have spent at this school, I have loved my time here, but I am convinced that I could have done more. So, with the gift of hindsight, I now offer this advice to the younger members of our community: your time at this school is shorter than you think, and it is never too early to make an impact. You boys have a voice and a brain, use them. Whether you are in Year 5 or Year 11, you can make an impact on this College, all it takes is a choice.

Even whilst reading this you may be coming up with reasons why this doesn’t apply to you, too young, too busy, too shy. I know these excuses, because I have used them all, so believe me when I say there is always an excuse. The only way you will ever make an impact is if you don’t let these excuses control you. So, moving forward, I implore you to silence those excuses brewing in your mind and make the choice to make it count. If you don’t make the choice now, you will likely reach the final term of your Senior year filled with regret, instead of pride.

Terrace Ladies Group

Welcome to Term 4

As usual it is hard to believe we are on the wrap up of the school year with the commencement of the eight week term. Despite it being a short term, there are many things happening on the TLG front. Here are some details.

Year 7 2018 Orientation

Tonight we welcome the Year 7 Students for 2018 at 5pm. Thank you to the Year 7 parents who have kindly offered their assistance in welcoming our new high school students and their families.

Inter-House Athletics Carnival – Tennyson

Tomorrow our much anticipated Inter-House Athletics Carnival is on at Tennyson. As per previous years we have a full offer on at the canteen which is always popular with the boys, and staff. Details on food and prices have been distributed via social media this week. A very big thank you to all the families who are contributing to this big day with home bake or hands on behind the counter. It is a big team effort indeed.

TLG Annual General Meeting – Monday 9 October

On Monday we are holding the TLG AGM in the College Museum from 9am. We are hoping for a good turnout, as we will be voting on some changes to the meeting time and frequency of TLG meetings for 2018. We want the TLG to be inclusive and meet the needs of its members, so please come along and have your say. The Committee is proposing that TLG meetings are held once per term at 7.30am (apart from Term 1 where there will be a meeting at the start of the school year, and a second later in the term). This will mean five TLG meetings per year (down from nine). Meeting dates will be circulated once confirmed and will be published in the 2018 Terrace calendar. If you cannot attend the TLG AGM and would like to vote on the proposed changes please contact the TLG Secretary at

Canteen Convenor 2018 and beyond

We are looking to fill the position of Canteen Convenor for Tennyson this term. 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 school with a view to finding the right person. You can also email me on if you’d like to find out more about this position.

TLG Thanksgiving Mass – Friday 3 November 9.30am

A special event in the year is our Thanksgiving Mass in the Chapel of the Holy Family, followed by a celebration lunch for the Year 12 Mothers to be held at Gambaro Hotel and Restaurant. Thank you to Lorilie Cunningham, Helen Smethurst, Paula Galloway, Christine Franzmann and Meaghan Round for organising this memorable function for our Senior mothers at a very emotional time for them.

Staff Christmas Lunch – Tuesday 28 November

The annual Staff Christmas Lunch is a wonderful celebration of our staff in appreciation for all their efforts and support of our boys throughout the year. The TLG hosts this directly through the generosity of our families with contributions of food, time and monetary donations. More details on this will be distributed in the next few weeks along with links to volunteer sign-on pages.

Good luck to our athletes on Friday.
