Principal’s Message | Dr Michael Carroll

Dear members of the Terrace Family,

Recent developments in Brisbane regarding COVID-19 have reinforced the need for us to maintain our vigilance on hand hygiene, social distancing and contact tracing capability.  For those who have visited any of the GPS sports venues in recent weeks, you will have noticed and experienced the QR check in process that is being used.  I ask parents to continue their support by using this system when visiting the various GPS sporting venues.

The spectator restrictions permitting only 2 parents are also very important, as is leaving the venue following the completion of your son’s game.  This will be particularly necessary this weekend with our fixtures against Nudgee. Spectators, including other students and parents, will not be permitted to stay and watch the 1st XI Football, 1st XV Rugby or 1st V Basketball games.  All games will be streamed live, and I have provided the relevant links to the Terrace Family earlier this week.  Your support in complying with these sporting protocols is very much appreciated and a necessary part of Terrace’s COVID-19 response.

Earlier this year we were forced to move to an online teaching and learning platform as we navigated the COVID-19 restrictions.  With recent media reports of new COVID-19 cases in Brisbane, staff are working to prepare the teaching and learning materials to be delivered via an online platform if required in the future.  It is our hope that this does not occur; however, the College staff are being proactive with their preparations, should a shift in teaching and learning delivery be necessary.

With the number of people being tested for COVID-19 starting to increase again, I remind parents that if an immediate member of your family has been tested and is awaiting results, then your son should remain home until the test results are known. This was also the protocol we used earlier this year.

On Tuesday, we held our Semester 1 Academic Assembly.  The assembly was streamed live for parents to watch online, rather than attend the assembly in person.  Over 300 students were awarded academic medals at the assembly.  This is an outstanding achievement, particularly in light of the disrupted learning environment that existed during Semester 1.  I offer my congratulations to all the students who were awarded academic medals and encourage the other students to continue to do the best that they can with their academic studies.  I also wish to acknowledge the hard work of the staff and the support provided by parents during Semester 1, which enabled the students to achieve these excellent results.

On Tuesday, our Cross Country runners competed in the GPS Cross Country Championships at Limestone Park.  Our runners have been training very hard for this event, despite the unusual and difficult circumstances involved.   There were many outstanding achievements on Tuesday and the team was placed a very creditable third place.  I wish to acknowledge the hard work of the coaches, the leadership provided by the Cross Country Captains and the support of their parents.  Without any spectators, our runners were impressive, demonstrating outstanding resilience and determination. Well done to all involved.

Finally this week, a reminder that next week the rescheduled public holiday for the RNA Show is Friday 14 August.  Normal GPS fixtures will occur on Saturday 15 August against BSHS.

Have a great week, and please remember the restrictions in regard to spectators at GPS sporting events.

God Bless.

Deputy Principal | Mr Damien Fall

We have finished compiling the feedback from families regarding the recent Parent/Teacher Interviews that were conducted for the first time via the online Teams platform. The data we have received will be beneficial in planning for the future. I was delighted with the number and depth of responses (541 people completed the survey – thank you) as well as the overwhelmingly positive nature of the feedback. This week, I thought I might share some of the feedback we received to give you the opportunity to see if your experience with these interviews was similar to others.

Of the respondents, 81% found the information provided to join interviews was clear and helpful with no problems, while 15% said it mostly made sense and the links to join the interviews worked, and 90% of respondents found the College’s audio and video quality either very good or more than satisfactory.

Common themes around the positives of this style of interview included:

  • No issues with babysitting, travel or parking
  • Avoiding the noise and confusion of the Campbell Centre
  • Being able to complete other tasks between interviews
  • Parents able to join interviews from two different locations
  • Calm, low stress and private
  • Teachers were well prepared and organised

The negatives included:

  • The lack of human interaction that comes with face to face meetings
  • Some issues with technology
  • Difficulty viewing student work

Many parents and caregivers made a point of commenting that there were no negatives and interviews via Teams were far better than our usual method. Coronavirus has presented us with plenty of challenges and negatives, but this has been a little silver lining. Being able to present subject selection evenings and academic medal assemblies remotely has been another positive addition.

When asked to rate the overall experience out of 10, the average was 8.67. The teacher in me says that’s an ‘A’ and it is thanks to the considerable efforts of many staff.

Finally, when asked about future preferences, 7% of respondents said they would prefer all face to face, 33% all online, while 56% would like an option to choose between the two. This gives us plenty to think about as we plan future interviews. Staff survey data is currently being collated and will be included in our deliberations.

I wish everyone the very best over the coming days and weeks. A reminder to all about working with us this weekend with a significant home round for Rugby at Tennyson. Dr Carroll has written to all in the community about restrictions for spectators. I strongly recommend reading this to fully understand what is permitted. I hope all in the Terrace Family stay safe and well.

Dean of Studies | Mr Mason Hellyer

Just Do It!

When you first see or hear these three words you instantly think of Nike, the sportswear company. This slogan has become synonymous as the tagline for a range of products and athletes. However, these three words are not just a slogan. I feel they can be a powerful message.

For example, the alarm went off at 5am this morning and I contemplated getting up and facing my training session. I would rather have slept in. We all often have that feeling where we would rather take the easy option. However, it is useful when these feelings occur to disregard your thoughts and just go. I find that if I just get started on a task, in this case, just get up, I can then focus on what I am doing. What felt like a drag before I got started turns into positive feelings about what I am about to do.

It is Week 4 of the 10-week term and assignments are upon us and exams are on the horizon. We have spent the first part of the term getting back into the normality of the school routine; identifying new ways of working; getting organised, celebrating our academic achievements and talking about how we want to improve. However, the time for talk is over. Just Do It!

How? Take a small step first. Complete all of your homework, start your revision now by doing some questions from last week’s work, read back over the notes you took two weeks ago, attend the staff tutoring sessions (timetable on the College App), log your study hours in your diary and ask your teacher for assistance.

For Year 12 students, the second half of this term will see two academic milestones. In Weeks 8 and 9 they will complete a mock External Exam block that will replicate the processes and procedures of the full exam block in Term 4. Year 12 students will have received the exam timetable this week. Secondly, students will be making decisions on which Tertiary institutions and courses they will apply for via their QTAC application form. To assist with this major decision, the College will be hosting an online QTAC information evening from 6pm, Monday 17 August. Further details and a link on how to join the presentation will be forwarded to Year 12 parents during Week 5.

With a busy assessment period looming for all students, whatever you choose to do…. Just Do It!

Dean of Students | Mr Damien Cuddihy

It has been fantastic to feel the excitement bubbling around the College this week with the impending matches this weekend against our close friends at Nudgee College. The students are also buoyed by the GPS Cross Country result on Tuesday. Moving from eighth to third place in 12 months is an excellent reflection on the commitment of the squad and, the positive influence of the Year 12 runners. Well done. Further to this, the promising results in the first few rounds of Football, Basketball and Tennis has the College looking forward to the next five weeks of competition.

I do sound like a broken record, but further to Michael’s correspondence during the week, I reinforce the message that no students are permitted to remain and watch any of the First’s matches on the weekends. The general motto is Arrive, Play, Leave. With two adults watching the match, we will be able to adhere to COVID-19 safe protocols. We need your support with this on the weekend at Tennyson to avoid unnecessary conflict.

The management of allergies amongst students is a particularly difficult and concerning issue for those families who have students at risk. While Terrace is not a nut-free school, I would encourage families to minimise the use of nuts where possible. Pistachio nuts are a popular morning tea treat that can be problematic. Boys will often leave the shells around the eating areas, which then have the potential to trigger allergic reactions in other students. I ask that if your son is bringing pistachios to school, or other nut products, that you remind them to be very diligent when discarding leftover shells and nuts please.

On another matter, I wish to raise the College’s concerns over students uploading footage to social media while in school uniform. Ensuring that all content is appropriate goes without saying, but we are increasingly frustrated with receiving footage of students in College uniform on social media sites. We will continue to raise this in assemblies, but we would appreciate your support in also discussing this with your sons.

Program Leader: Campus Ministry | Andrew Stormonth

‘To love tenderly, act justly, and walk humbly with our God.’

As members of the Terrace Family, we are called to be present in voice and action to all in our community and beyond. The world we were present to 12 months ago is far from the reality we have experienced in 2020. What it has taught us is to take a step back, reflect and re-connect to our reality, appreciating the opportunities and privilege we have. We are called to live witness to what is happening in our world right now and challenge all to do more for each other.

In many parts of the world, access to educational opportunities is extremely limited; this is particularly true of young women and girls, especially in developing countries, such as those in Sub-Saharan Africa. In fact, at a primary level, 34 million girls are not attending school. Of those girls, 16 million will never once set foot in a classroom. It is because of confronting statistics like these that two-thirds of the world’s 750 million illiterate adults are female.  In the absence of education, these women are subject to intergenerational poverty and are unable to fully participate in their respective societies. The “best foot forward” campaign aims to remedy this tragedy. 

This term, students are called to the Best Foot Forward project let by the Edmund Rice Foundation Australia. Here in Australia, we take for granted the access to education afforded to us and the opportunities this education provides; such as the ability to reach our full potential as an individual or to gain meaningful employment to provide for ourselves. The Best Foot Forward project is centred around bringing awareness to the lack of education and training for women in developing nations. As part of this project, we have been selling pink shoelaces as a sign of solidarity, with the funds raised going towards education and training programs for women to assist them in creating employment and business opportunities.

In collaboration with St Joseph’s Nudgee College, we hope to have as many of our students who are participating in co-curricular activities across this weekend wearing the pink laces in a sign of solidarity and support of this worthwhile project. We hope that this small gesture of solidarity with other EREA schools raises necessary funds for these projects. We also hope that our Terrace Gentlemen have a greater appreciation of the opportunities they have and hear the call to learn how to be agents of change in our community.

At College Assembly on Tuesday, our Vice Captains shared this prayer:

Dear God,
We give thanks for the education and opportunities that we have received in our journey. We are grateful for the many educators who have guided us on our journey. We ask for justice and dignity for those who are disadvantaged and unable to receive an opportunity to education that we are fortunate to receive. We pray that there is an effort made by all to further enhance the importance of education for all people and that there is greater equity.
May we challenge ourselves to put our Best Foot Forward to walk in solidarity with those who have not experienced the same opportunities and privilege that we have.
May we seek justice and find the chance to cause change in our local community and beyond.
May we be able to act justly, love tenderly and walk humbly with our God.

Live Jesus in our hearts…forever.



Dean of Waterford | Mr Luke Gribble

Firstly, I would like to thank the Waterford teachers and our parents and caregivers for coming together during the recent Parent/Teacher Interviews to share information, provide strategies for improvement and have conversations in support of your sons. The partnership between school and home is crucial to the guidance and support of our young men.

The last two weeks have seen our students reflect on their schooling to date and start planning and taking steps towards the next chapter of their Terrace life with Senior subject selection. Hopefully, the subject selection night has helped both you and your son in making those decisions, which will impact on his educational journey. We also thank you for your patience and support with our first Year 11 Subject Selection night, which was all held online. I know this may have been slightly different to what some parents are used to. All subject selection choices were due last Friday.

Finally, all students have been informed this week that their Outdoor Education Camp/Retreat group has been slightly amended. To better align with our Formation program and reduce timetabling issues, the boys will now participate in their Camp/Retreat experience in their Formation class and not their Mathematics classes as previously communicated. This will only affect some students.

The following Year 10 Formation class retreat/camp dates are:

  • 10A Camp + Retreat – Week 8 - Monday 31 August – Wednesday 2 September
  • 10B Camp + Retreat – Week 8 - Tuesday 1 September – Thursday 3 September
  • 10C Camp + Retreat – Week 8 – Wednesday 2 September – Friday 4 September
  • 10D Camp + Retreat – Week 9 - Monday 7 September – Wednesday 9 September
  • 10E Camp + Retreat – Week 9 - Tuesday 8 September – Thursday 10 September
  • 10F Camp + Retreat – Week 9 - Wednesday 9 September – Friday 11 September
  • 10G Camp + Retreat – Week 10 - Monday 14 September – Wednesday 16 September
  • 10H Camp + Retreat – Week 10 - Tuesday 15 September – Thursday 17 September
  • 10I Camp + Retreat – Week 10 - Wednesday 16 September – Friday 18 September

Our Chess teams performed well in Round 3 against BBC with the Junior A Board currently ranked third. Jonathan Hsu (Year 7) remains undefeated for the season, even under trying circumstances. Jonathan currently has a Queensland Junior Chess rating of 1144 and defeated his opponent whose rating is 1244. Well done Jonathan.

 Congratulations also go to:

  •  Justin Jeyarajah (Year 12) Senior A Board 1, whose rating is 762 and he defeated his opponent rated 951.
  •  Jackson McConnachy (Year 6) who plays on the lower Open Board and is three wins out of three matches.

Follow the results here.


With the easing of some restrictions, we have seen the re-commencement of some opportunities for our debaters at Terrace.

Ww have re-started our seminar series that will be held three times this term, with the hope for more next term. Our first seminar was held last week and was enjoyed by those who attended. If your child is interested in participating in the seminars, please go to the Debating section on the College App to register.

On Sunday, we saw the commencement of the QDU Mini Competition, where schools who are usually part of the QDU Senior A Competition were able to enter a team. This competition will run over three Sundays, with the final held on Wednesday 26 August. Our team won their first round debate and then had a forfeit win for the second round. We wish them all the best for this Sunday.


Our newest Terracian musicians in the Year 5 Concert Band were prevented from making their debut at the Norman Clarke concert owing to COVID-19. They added some rocking beats to our Monday as they rehearsed a medley in Duhig Place. Standby for our great Year 5 String Ensemble.

Halftime Performance - Where are you?

We have moved – online of course! One great aspect of Terrace is our support of each other and our common desire to have all facets of College life co-exist. While COVID-19 has forced away any halftime entertainment at the Football and Rugby, we have moved online and will feature in the streamed game. The Drumline can be seen on Facebook with their recording of Hey Ya! while the Pep Band will soon drop Happy. Have a look at our behind the scenes of these videos on the Cultural Instagram. 

Staying in touch   

To keep in touch with all things Cultural, we would suggest you download the Terrace App and follow us on Twitter (@GTCulture) and Instagram (terrace_gtculture) to ensure you don’t miss anything.  The Cultural YouTube Channel is also worth a look!

If you have any photographs or video that you would to share, please tag us.

Director of Music | Mr Jan Hewerdine

Welcome to Week 4

Our thanks to the Fanfare Team, under the direction of Mr Esbensen for their support at assembly last week. A further thank you to the Waterford String Quartet who supported the Academic Music assembly this week.

On Monday, the Year 5 Classroom Music Concert Band came together for the first time to rehearse. Although these boys have been learning for only six months, I think you will agree that they acquitted themselves admirably. Here is the link to the Facebook post.

On Friday 4 September we will be holding our Placement Day for all musicians and singers who will be in Years 5 and 7 in 2021. If you are in Year 6 now at Terrace, we do not need to see you. This event provides the Music Department with the opportunity to meet and hear our newest members before next year and place them in an appropriate ensemble. This is not an audition, but it is a moment to provide certainty for students and families for next year.

I would like to draw your attention to the College’s Vocal and Choral program. This department covers many facets of voice production. Aside from learning to sing and belonging to a choir, it also provides the following dividends:

  •  Confidence
  • Singing and speaking on pitch
  • Stagecraft and spatial awareness as a presenter
  • Articulation
  • Vocal dynamics

The future is something that we are very excited about! In short order, we are looking forward to the following:

  • Vocal workshop, recording and video during the September holidays.
  • Middle School Musical 2021, Joseph and His Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat
  • Australian International Music Festival June/July holiday – Sydney 2021
  • Tour to Eurovision Choir 2023

If you have an interest in any of the above, or if you are looking to being involved in the Middle School Musical for 2021, I would like to encourage you to take up singing!

To enrol for lessons, click on this link and fill in the form and we can take it from there!

The range of possibilities as we grow this part of Music at Terrace are endless. We are looking forward to supporting our students in all things vocal.

Music Practice Hall

Music Practice Hall is held on Mondays from 3.15-5pm. We are seeing more boys coming to this again, so thank you for your support. A valuable way to use this is to work on the aural component of external exams. For AMEB candidates, the material for this can be found in your son’s OneNote Instrumental lessons, under the ‘Content Library’ tab. We encourage you to support this unique opportunity, whereby your sons can practice and receive guided supervision with tutors from the Queensland Conservatorium of Music and other tertiary institutions.

If you have any queries or concerns, please contact the Music Department

The Weekly Wrap


In Round 3 of GPS Basketball, Terrace took on the traditionally strong Brisbane Boys’ College (BBC) for the majority of fixtures. The games were highly competitive but played with great spirit at both the Spring Hill and Toowong campuses. The Terrace Basketball community extends our thanks to the BBC players, staff and families for the day. 

 It was a great day for Terrace as we recorded our most successful day against BBC in recent memory. Of the 29 games played, Terrace won 23 and drew the 10B match with a last-second levelling jump shot by Connor Foxlee. The A/B program was impressive, taking some comfortable victories against strong opposition, but their record was outdone by the C-E teams who won every match played against BBC. 

This result is a product of hard work and discipline at every training session, and we ask that players maintain the intensity over the next month as the program pushes forward to the business end of the season.

The 1st V were made to fight for their victory as BBC took the game to them in an entertaining first half. Eventually, Terrace were able to rally, the team leaders all class as they elevated the squad to a 32 point victory. This marked the first time in over a decade that a Terrace 1st V team has celebrated a victory at BBC. Jack McCabe and Jacob Clifton scored their first points for the Terrace 1st V and the whole team can be proud of their efforts as they go undefeated into Round 4 against Nudgee College.

Despite the thrills of the 1st V match, the most impressive display of Round 3 was undoubtedly the mighty 9Gs who played up two divisions against the Nudgee 9Es. The team moved the ball around the court well to open up a lead and, in an MVP performance, Kyle Winks made three 3-pointers to seal a well-deserved victory. 

As the season approaches the midway mark, we encourage players to remain focused on their training in both attendance and work ethic to get the best results they can each weekend.


Our Round 3 games at Tennyson saw the sun come out, and the goals follow for the boys in red and black. Brisbane Boys’ College brought 20 strong teams to our grounds. The Terrace teams had a great day, winning 12, drawing 2 and losing 6. This strong effort is a fantastic achievement and a progressive step forward for Football here at Gregory Terrace.

A special mention must go to our 5As and 8Bs who have kept their oppositions scoreless to date and remain undefeated going into Round 4. 

The 11As got their first points on the board with a solid win and our 1st XI repeated last week’s winning score, as our Year 12 players had their last outing on Internationals Oval before it is prepared for Rugby.

This week we will hit the road to take on our traditional rivals at Nudgee College. The Nudgee playing fields have always been a tough place to travel, and the teams that call them home always make us work hard for the win, but I am sure our boys can’t wait to face the challenge this Saturday.


St Joseph’s College Cup

This Saturday, all roads lead to Tennyson for the annual Terrace v Nudgee round. Both schools will be vying for the St Joseph’s College Cup, which will be awarded at the completion of the 1st XV match to the school who wins the most games on the day. A total of 29 matches will be contested between Terrace and Nudgee on Saturday.  

COVID-19 return to play guidelines reminder

A special thanks to the Terrace Rugby community for your support of our Return to Play Guidelines. To ensure this Saturday’s home round is a success, please note the following key points:

  •  Two x parent/caregivers per child to spectate (no siblings/children, grandparents, family friends etc.).
  • Play and Leave Only | Players and spectators should avoid standing around after their game/s.
  • Arrive Ready to Play | No change rooms will be available.

Game Day program

The Home Game Day program is produced by the Rugby Support Group. A big thank you to Rosanna Ferguson and our friends from CPX Printing for the work they do in putting the program together each weekend. Please ensure you collect a copy from one of our check in points when you register with EVA Check-in this Saturday.

Team selections

Terrace Rugby teams are selected on the following criteria:

  • Ability and skill level
  • Attitude
  • Attendance at training/competition
  • Team composition

The selection process is committed to maintaining consistency and fairness. Team changes will only occur based on performances after Round 3 and Round 6 of the GPS Competition, with week-to-week adjustments only made due to injury or unavailability.

The promotion and demotion of players will occur after a meeting is convened between the age group coordinator and coaches. The coach or age group coordinator will make every effort to give players appropriate and constructive feedback on the reasons for demotion or promotion.


Round 3 was a challenging day, with GPS powerhouse Brisbane Boys' College winning the majority of matches; however, many matches were tightly contested and more competitive than previous years. Well done to the 6D, 6B and 9C teams for their victories on Saturday.

As a program, we are most proud of the teams that fight, regardless of the result, and we saw this in abundance throughout Saturday’s fixtures. Congratulations to Harrison Lead (Year 6) who was calm under pressure in his singles match with the scores level at 30-30 and 5-5 all; he played bravely and strongly contributed to his side’s 31-30 victory. This was a fantastic display of skill and sportsmanship, and one that will stay with him throughout his journey at the College and beyond.

An honourable mention goes to Tom Campbell (Year 10) who won his singles as Number 1 in the 10A team against an opposition with a strong record against him. His performance highlighted the growth he has undergone through the Terrace Tennis program and serves as an example of the success that can be found if a player applies themselves to training and development.

This Saturday, Terrace takes on Nudgee College for Round 4. We will be playing away for most fixtures this weekend at the Nudgee College Courts and other venues for supplementary matches but will host some games at Victoria Park, Ambiwerra and St Joseph’s Corinda. Note that Terrace Football will also be playing away at Nudgee College. Please be prepared for parking to possibly take longer than expected.

Please keep an eye on the Terrace Tennis Twitter account for match day updates around the weather. Tennis is a weather dependent sport, and unfortunately, this means that, at times, matches may be relocated or cancelled. We will keep families updated via Twitter on match days, so ensure you are following our account and have notifications turned on.

Best of luck to all of our Terrace Tennis players this weekend.

Captains’ Corner | Vice Captain, Dan Migotto

In my last Captains’ Corner, I wrote about Cross Country at Terrace, and how, with great leadership from the Seniors, we hoped to restore the program’s legacy. Well, going into the GPS championships on Tuesday we hoped for an optimistic fourth or fifth. Following the 16 Years and Opens team arrival at Limestone Park, we were greeted with good news. After the 13, 14 and 15 Years races, we were in third place. An incredible result from the younger boys. With this news came a realisation, the younger boys had given it absolutely everything, now it was our turn. The boys took this in stride, nerves were high, but we were ready. The 16s went first, and they crushed it. Shortly after, the Opens took the start line. As soon as the gun went off, it was on - 6000 meters of pure passion. We crossed that finish line with nothing left to give. And just like that, nine throw-ups and three visits to the emergency tent later, Terrace’s GPS championships were over.  As they announced the placings, we crossed our fingers, ninth passed, eighth, then seventh … and before we knew it: “in third place… Gregory Terrace!”

Looking back now, I am so proud to say that on Tuesday 4 August 2020, we brought Terrace Cross Country back. From eighth last year to third this year. Even writing this newsletter, I am still in awe. I can say with total confidence that every single runner experienced absolute agony on that day, but not a single person gave in. Even if we did tie with IGS, there is no doubting the pride has been restored, and I could not be prouder.

Congratulations to every member of the Cross Country team, and good luck to the other sports programs for the rest of their seasons.

Terrace XC out.
