Principal’s Message | Acting Principal, Mr Chris Ryan

It is a privilege to act as College Principal for the next six weeks whilst Dr Carroll is on leave. Of course, the main goal is for a business as usual approach. If I may be of support or assistance in any way during this time, please feel welcome to be in contact. I thank the wonderful Terrace Family for your support of me and all those key staff in acting positions.

I am aware that some newer members of the community may not know me as well as some other staff. This is my 26th year of working with firstly the Christian Brothers and then Edmund Rice Education Australia. I enjoyed 20 years at St Joseph’s Nudgee College in various roles including, Head of Year 11 and 12 Boarding, Director of Students Years 5 to 9, Dean of Students, Dean of Identity and Acting Deputy Principal before coming to Terrace in 2012 as Dean of Identity and becoming College Dean in January of 2015. I am husband to Louise who is a teacher at Stuartholme and Father to three teenage girls in Clare, Bernadette and Genevieve. I look forward to the next six weeks and the coming years with enthusiasm and optimism.

Dr Carroll’s final responsibility before going on leave was attending the Spring Luncheon hosted by the Terrace Ladies Group. Thank you to the committee and all who assisted and participated in facilitating this wonderful friend making initiative. I am sure a good time was had by all.

In the coming weeks we have several Old Boy gatherings being celebrated. This Friday evening we welcome the 1967 class who are signposting 50 years of post- school life. No doubt, many a story will be shared. On Saturday, for our final round of GPS Rugby which is being played against BBC at Tennyson, we welcome all Old Boys back to Tennyson. A special area will be designated for these Terracians on the far side of the grandstand and in particular, we welcome the class of 1987 who are gathering for their reunion at Tennyson and later back at the College.

This Saturday, we also celebrate our friendship with the people of Timor-Leste. As I write, our students and staff are on our annual Timor Immersion and on Saturday, the 1st XV will wear special jerseys which symbolize our solidarity with the people of Timor. I thank the Terrace Timor Network for their preparation for this day. Please feel welcome to visit the information stall, purchase some TTN products and find out how you may be able to become involved.

A special word to our Chess community as this program is going from strength to strength and are currently ranked third in the GPS competition coming into the final round. Much effort and commitment has gone into this journey and well done to all involved. We are very proud of all sport and culture participants at every level and wish the 1st V Basketball and 1st XV Rugby teams well for this weekend.

Congratulations to four of our Future Problem Solving teams who have been invited to represent the College and Queensland at the Future Problem Solving Nationals in October at Knox College in Sydney. Thank you to Mrs Tracey McIvor and Ms Karin Coleshill and staff for their support of these boys.

Year 6 | James Garvin, Will Ames, Zachary Vivian, Declan Farrell,

Year 8 | Ben Chatwood, Ben Savage, Dan Fitzgerald, Matthew Mitchell

Year 9 | Finbar Carroll, Yang Zhang, Kevin Ye, Matthew Cho and Patrick Gleeson (reserve)

Year 11 | Josh Bonwick, Max Tracey, Alex O’Meally and Ewan Bryson.

It was a delight last week to welcome our Year 5 class for 2018 at their Orientation Evening as the Seniors of 2025 which will be our 150th birthday year. Well done to the Year 11 buddies and all staff involved in a great evening.

This week has seen the commencement of exams for all year levels bar the Year 10 fellows who are on Immersion. Best of luck for this busy time and thank you to all parents who are supporting the boys to be the best they can be and our dedicated staff who are so busy at this time of year. We look forward to celebrating the safe return of our Year 10 boys next week and sharing in their wonderful experiences.

Chris Ryan

Acting College Principal

College Dean | Acting College Dean, Mr Damien Fall

It is a great privilege for me to be writing this article as I fill the position of Acting College Dean. This has come about due to Mr Chris Ryan acting as Principal while Dr Carroll takes leave for the final two weeks of this term and the first two weeks of Term 4. I am enjoying the challenge of learning the intricacies of a new role and am feeling fresh after taking long-service leave for the first six weeks of this term. I feel very fortunate that my wife and I had the opportunity to spend three weeks in the USA, attending a family wedding and seeing an amazing part of the world. Returning to work after an extended break is always a challenge, but coming back to the Terrace Family is always a gentle landing. Travelling always serves as a reminder that we live in a wonderful part of the world. I look forward to the coming weeks in my temporary role, which primarily involves working closely with matters pertaining to the College’s staff.

This week, we welcomed Mrs Melissa Deacon back after a period of leave. On behalf of the College, I extend our warm thanks to Ms Cassandra Bampton who assumed the position of Acting Coordinator of Learning Support and to all of the amazing staff of the Faculty of Exceptional Learners, who kept things running smoothly in Melissa’s absence.

Term 3 is always busy and can be somewhat exhausting, both for students and staff. As usual at this time of year, we have had a significant amount of illness within our community, but we are almost at the finish line, meaning some days of rest and recuperation are not too far away. I wish all of our staff and students the very best at this important time, involving the completion and marking of assessment and the subsequent reporting process.

Dean of Studies | Mrs Julie Quinn


This week has already been witness to great dedication by many students to produce their best outcomes in their exams. I continue to be inspired by the planning and preparation and thought that many students make towards their academic outcomes. One such example is the student who has downloaded all the learning required from the checklists provided and has across this term, methodically and systematically marked off the lists as he has mastered each topic. His commitment has given him a level of confidence approaching this exam block that is an essential part of success.

All students have been issued with copies of the exam schedule. Copies can be obtained from student services or downloaded from Moodle. These timetables are an necessary part of a strategic revision plan. This week and next week’s challenge is to ensure that our boys exhibit perseverance in their preparation and commitment until the completion of their final exam. Our aim is for each and every student to finish the term knowing that he has given his best, whatever that outcome may be.

Reports and use of data

Term 3 reports will be sent electronically this term. Hard copies will not be posted home.

Electronic copies will be sent on the Friday October 6, of Week 1 of next term.

Reports will show a Term 3 result, a cumulative Term 1,2 and 3 result and an indication of a student’s application, behaviour and homework commitment throughout this term. The data from these results allows us to generate numerous reports to inform us of students who have gained ground and those who may have lost ground. This information is the focus for student conversations leading into Term 4 around further strategies to either support or amend current learning habits.

Year 12 students will receive next term, a further updated estimated OP score based upon their most recent results. This will also be carried out for our Year 11 students. These estimates allow students to measure their own academic outcomes as they journey across their Senior years which provides incentives to adapt their study habits accordingly. Scores are given within a range of two OP points.


Next Wednesday evening at 6pm at Waterford we host our Immersion presentations summarising the breadth and depth of the various experiences over the three weeks. These programs continue to be a highlight across a student’s time at Terrace. Our overseas Immersions this year vary from Timor- Leste to Fiji to Cape York to India and to the USA. We continue to thank and appreciate the gifts and generosity of our staff who enable this program to take place.

Australian Mathematics Competition

Results from the Australian Maths competition have now been released. Terrace performed very strongly in this very challenging set of problems.

My thanks to Mr Noel Covill, our Head of Mathematics and Mrs Cath Griffin for all their time, dedication and expertise in setting these opportunities up for our boys.

Dean of Students, Mr Damien Cuddihy

With the commencement of exams around the College this week for Years 5-9 and the Year 11 and 12 students already off campus on exam block the buildings are certainly a little quieter at the moment. However, this doesn’t hide the intensity of exam time for all staff and students over the next week. It’s important that the boys are organised and well rested in order to be in a frame of mind that is conducive to producing their best effort in an exam.

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. Research shows that children as young as eight, are able to easily recall the marketing for sports betting. 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.

Children are also being inadvertently exposed to simulated gambling and gambling sites through mobile devices. With video games being extremely popular, this has the potential to blur the boundary between video gaming and gambling. Research suggests that more than 40 per cent of young people, who have an interest in video games with gambling-like features, will also have a preoccupation with gambling or intend to gamble in the future.

A study conducted by the Australian Council for Educational Research, found that up to five per cent of young people in Australia will develop gambling problems before the age of 25. A link to this month’s topic can be found here.

With the last round of Rugby, Basketball and Chess upon us this weekend I would like to thank you all for your support of the programs this term. The mid-week training and weekend drop-offs and pick-ups are always difficult to manage but it’s your presence that we thank you for. I know it means a great deal to the boys when they know someone is sitting on the side line watching them play.

Dean of Identity | Mr Charles Brauer

Celebrating Year 10 Immersion, from Waterford Place to Maroon, to India, Timor-Leste and America.

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

As we move into the final week of school, boys are needing to be focussed on their exams. Having a specific plan of what subjects will be covered each night and what is actually being covered within those subjects is essential. Having a plan for this weekend is also incredibly important. What commitments with family/school/club have I got? What time blocks will I use for revision? What subjects and equipment do I need to bring home Friday? What actions will I be taking for each subject (end of Chapter reviews/checklist booklet items/Moodle quizzes/covering specific topics…).

The other question is HOW to study. Formation classes cover the range of Terrace revision techniques such as Friday Roll Call/Work the Corridors/Reading/Note taking in the checklist booklet/highlighting/self tests/mind maps/flow charts/flash cards/time based revision.

Year 8s have selected their two elective subjects for next year and I thank these boys and their families for their communication and punctuality in this process.

Congratulations to our Future Problem Solving Teams who have qualified to contest the National Problem Solving Championships being held at Knox Grammar School in Sydney.

The participation rates of our students in Years 7 to 9 across the co-curricular program this term has again been unquestionable. Recent results in the Catholic Music Festival were outstanding and our large number of sporting teams have been very competitive as well as playing with wonderful sportsmanship.

Director of Culture | Mr Matt Cocking

All British Day

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

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

Cultural Photograph Day

Wednesday 4 October is scheduled for a photograph day for Cultural co-curricular activities. An email has already been sent to all students and parents regarding this event. Please note that some students may need a number of different uniforms due to the different activities in which they participate. Please ensure your uniforms are clean and tidy.


The 2017 chess season has been filled with ups and downs. Leading up to the final game, the 1sts are coming fifth out of the nine GPS schools. This is a massive improvement on our seventh place position after Round 3. In Round 6, although we narrowly lost the night, 2.5-1.5, the 1st team scored the best result to date against BGS. This is indicative of our improvement, not only as individuals, but also as a team. Next year will be a new year and we will work on the middle section of our teams, such as the Seniors, Juniors, Open As, Open Bs and Open Cs. To conclude, although many players may be disappointed with how the season has progressed, our new policies for 2018 on how to improve chess at Terrace directly address the subtle gaps in our abilities.

Director of Sport | Mr Damian Wright

The 1st V commemorative TNN Basketball singlet to be worn this Saturday.

Thank you to all the boys who have so richly represented the College this term in Rugby and Basketball. You have done so, in the best of sportsmanship – from our youngest members in Under 11 and Year 5 through to our Open Year 12 teams. You have represented your College exceptionally well and every boy should be proud of their achievements.

From my perspective, it has been a calm year, both on and off the field. The smooth running of the program is in no small way a direct result of the leadership and mentoring of the two dedicated men in charge – Mr Sam Mackinnon for Basketball and Mr Tyron Mandrusiak for Rugby.

Working significantly with these men and their programs are the hard-working Support Groups, led by Mr Prins Ralston – Rugby and Mr Garry See – Basketball. Thank you to the entire support groups who these men represent – from the set-ups, the pull downs, the manning of BBQs, and the general underwriting of the programs which is exceptionally important and truly appreciated.

Thanks also to the tireless workings of the TLG at Tennyson, manning the canteen. These ladies led by Mrs Melissa Josephson, do this job all year long – through Cricket in Term 1, Football in Term 2, and Rugby in Term 3. Amazing effort ladies – thank you.

Special Help

The TLG desperately need your help – they too have sons involved in Saturday sport and several of them have worked four to five hour shifts every weekend. Please, if you can assist by donating one hour of your time on Saturday, which will be a very busy day, drop in and volunteer. You won’t be turned away. The more hands available make the day go faster. Additional help is required from midday through to 2pm.

TGS Round

We saw great results across the board in both Rugby and Basketball with Terrace winning most games from Year 5 through to Open’s last Saturday in Round 8 of the GPS competition.

The results are a positive measure of the programs depth, development and ongoing progression, well done. The flagship teams in the 1st V Basketball and 1st XV Rugby both secured strong victories, dominating their opponents. Congratulations boys!

In Basketball, the Terrace 1st V are currently sitting in equal fourth place with four wins and three losses. They will line up against a strong and robust BBC this weekend who are currently undefeated. What a scalp that would be, when Terrace takes a win this weekend.

In Rugby, the 1st XV sit in outright fourth position with four wins and three losses. Their opponents this weekend sit in 3rd position, one win ahead. Terrace can climb the ladder into the top three this weekend.

Wishing good play to all teams for the final round of Term 3 sport. It will be a demanding challenge of your skill sets under pressure. Don’t give in!

Thank you to all graduating Year 12 boys this weekend for your leadership and the positive example you continue to set for all Terracians. Continue to be good ambassadors of the College and maintain the integrity you have nurtured over the years in this great College. I hope you have enjoyed your time representing the Red and Black – let’s have you go out proud winners.

The Weekly Wrap

Rugby Wrap

As we head into the final round of the GPS Rugby season against Brisbane Boys College, I would like to take this opportunity to look back on the season. Thanks to the many people who contribute to providing a safe and positive environment for our boys to experience the great game of Rugby.

Over 790 young men participated in Rugby at Terrace in 2017 and all players, in all teams, in all matches displayed great sportsmanship and respect for their opponents, they are to be congratulated for their performances. Their coaches, many of whom are parents and Old Boys giving up their time, are to be congratulated as well, as the success of Terrace Rugby is due in no small part to their invaluable assistance.

Terrace Rugby is very fortunate to have such a committed group of Sport Office staff, teaching staff, parents and Old Boys.

Special thanks must go the following:

  • Terrace Rugby Support Group, lead by Mr Prins Ralston and Mr Damian Hearne. A special thanks to Mr Andrew Hiley and Mr Lee Bodimeade who are first to arrive and last to leave Tennyson on game day to set up and pull down.
  • Mr Andrew Dowling from the Rugby Support Group and Mrs Melisa Josephson from the TLG along with all parents who assisted in the BBQ pit and the canteen on game day.
  • Mr Shaun Hartland, Mr Lawrence Scott and Mr Simon Porter for their efforts with the home game score board, match day program and sponsorship.
  • Mrs Rossana Ferguson and her hard working sales staff for their efforts with the merchandise tent.
  • Dr Ben Forster, his team of parent doctors and twelve9teen physiotherapy who ensured all boys where in safe hands at our home away from home games.
  • Our Terrace referees who quietly go about their jobs.
  • Mr Alan Kennedy and Mr Craig Jesberg who prepare the fields at Tennyson each weekend and last but not least all the parents and friends who supported from the sidelines.
  • We have a number of long serving parent coaches whose sons are graduating this year, who over the years have dedicated countless hours to the program. I thank you all.

Finally, I would like to acknowledge all Open Rugby players and thank them for their efforts over the years playing rugby at Terrace. These young men have played rugby at Terrace, some since 2010. The Terrace Family is very proud of you and in your final year at Terrace we want to publically thank you for pulling on the Red and Black Jersey for the final time this Saturday at Tennyson.

Captain’s Corner |

Last Tuesday and Wednesday the Terrace Seniors sat the QCS. If you are unaware of what the QCS is–somehow–then it is the test which all year 12s wishing to get an OP score must sit. It is notorious, so much so that for the past year I have been dreading sitting it. If you asked me one week ago what I thought about QCS never once did I think I would miss it, but somehow, I do. The feeling of camaraderie and mateship as all 236 of us walked through the tunnel, made by every Terrace student and staff, to sit the gruelling seven hours of exams, were unprecedented.

On the weekend, I was had this exact same conversation with a fellow Year 12 student. Incredibly, before I had said anything about it, this Year 12 said the exact same thing. Word for word, he told me: “As weird as it sounds, I actually kind of miss QCS. It just seemed the whole cohort came together.” I couldn't have been happier. I wasn't some weird entity that enjoyed the exhausting 420-minute task.

I realised we may not have done well, or we may have killed it. Only time will tell. But one thing for sure is that every boy in that hall gave it everything. The Seniors of 2017 came together. The results that we get in December will be the best that our year could get.

Until then, study hard, revise your notes and get adequate sleep this exam period. Ask for help if you need it, don’t forget that together we are 18 000 strong.

Terrace Ladies Group

Spring Luncheon | 1 September | Hillstone, St Lucia

The Spring Luncheon at Hillstone last Friday was a wonderful celebration of the Terrace Family. Over 500 ladies enjoyed the beautiful first day of spring together. Congratulations to all our prize winners, especially Mrs Sally Millard who won the McKinney’s Jewellers voucher.

Special thanks to all our sponsors for contributing towards a terrific prize pool. In particular, thank you McKinney’s Jewellers once again for your generosity towards TLG functions and enabling our successful fundraising efforts. Special thanks also to Gambaro’s Hotel for hosting a very festive after party with a very generous hospitality offer as well as their efforts in decorating in Terrace colours to make us feel welcome.

The Spring Luncheon 2017 managed to raise almost $25,000. These funds will be going towards a specific aspect in the new development on Rogers Street. Final design detail is still to be undertaken once the tender process has been completed. Once this has happened, TLG will be participating in discussions to identify a key area for our funds to be allocated. The Committee will keep TLG members informed on any decisions made.

Last but not least, a huge thank you must also go to the organising committee. Without all their hard work we would not have had such a successful luncheon.

Photos from the event that were taken by Studio Kirby can be uploaded via their website using this link. No password is required.

Year 5 2018 Orientation

Last Thursday evening we saw the Year 5 Students of 2018 and their families for their Orientation Evening. Special thanks to the Year 9 mothers who assisted us in making them feel welcome.

Year 7 2018 Orientation

On Thursday 6 October, we welcome the Year 7 Students for 2018 at 5pm, with the TLG providing refreshments. Another request for assistance for this will happen, most likely to Year 9 families, so keep a look out for that please.

TLG meeting – Monday 4 September

Thank you to the ladies who attended the TLG meeting on Monday this week. We covered many topics with a view to getting ideas on moving forward for 2018. In particular, we talked about time and frequency of TLG meetings, ideas for guest speakers and canteen operating systems. Some of these matters affect the TLG Constitution and therefore require a vote to be held at a TLG meeting, with a quorum of members present. This will happen at our Annual General Meeting on Monday 9 October at 9am. We will also be announcing the new placements for TLG Executive positions for 2018-2019 at the AGM. Of course, all are welcome and we hope to have good numbers to enable voting for the recommended changes. Further information will be circulated prior to the meeting.

Canteen Assistance this Saturday

This Saturday is a home game against BBC. We are expecting a very busy day in the Canteens because it is also a Timor Friendship day, Old Boys 30 Year Reunion for 1987, as well as a full schedule of games against a strong rugby school. Help has been requested through the volunteer sign-on links through the Sports Office, which can also be found on the College App and twitter. Please consider signing up to help, even just for half an hour. All assistance is greatly appreciated. We would also be most grateful for a good supply of home bake please.

Inter-house Sports Carnival

On Friday 7 October, Week 1 of next term, is the Inter-House Athletics Carnival at Tennyson. The TLG will be operating a full canteen service and assistance will be requested via a sign-on volunteer link in the coming weeks. We will also be most grateful to home bake being either sent with the boys, or you could deliver either to Tennyson directly, or drop off to Student Services for collection and transport out to Tennyson. Last year the canteen was extremely popular with the boys and we are expecting the same again. More information for this will come in the week leading up to the carnival.

Care and Concern

We are currently underway with a Care and Concern service for a family who are in need due to illness. Thank you to the ladies who quickly filled the roster for this. The family receiving the meals is extremely grateful and look forward to the delivery of the delicious dinners each day.

There is likely to be another Care and Concern offer next term for another family. We will do a call out across the school community for assistance here, so please keep a look out for this and help where you can.
