1 DECEMBER 2012 Stepping out Looking to the next stage Page 7

2 Principally speaking 2012 has been, unquestionably, a good, very good year. After the heartache of 2011 the flooding, a delayed start to Term 1 as a result and the loss of Tennyson this year has been filled with many positives including: The return to Tennyson in January and official blessing and re-opening on August 18 and the adoption of further development, including a grandstand. Exceptional NAPLAN and QCS results which we hope will be reflected in our end of year OPs. The development of our Sporting Excellence Program (a story on which appears in this issue on Pages 10-11). An outstanding year by our Seniors, who led by example at every turn. We also have begun, led by Dean of Students Mr David Carroll, and Dean of Identity Mr Chris Ryan, further development of our Formation Program by melding together the values espoused on our College Crest, our Mission to develop the Terrace Gentleman and our charter as a school in the Edmund Rice tradition. Spirtually, academically, culturally and on the sports fields the behaviour of our students always should reflect what we expect of a Terrace Gentleman. To achieve this, the entire Terrace Community plays a role. Community is our greatest asset the College Leadership Team, staff, College Board, Foundation, our Supporters Groups and indeed all our parents, who have taken to heart that the partnership between school and home is vital to the education of our young men. As this is the final issue of The Terracian of 2012, I would like to take just a moment to specifically thank some people who are finishing in their roles in 2012 Board members Mrs Jo Le Mas and Mr Peter Camphin and Terrace Ladies Group chair and secretary Mrs Julie Tyquin and Vice President Mrs Sandra Colley. Your contribution to the College, the many, many hours you have spent here working on behalf of our students is greatly appreciated. Finally, I would like to end this year with the same message, I delivered in the final Terrace News about Christmas: Principal Mr Peter Chapman Christmas is a wonderful time but it can be a time of too much shopping and too few parking spaces. A time where love is quantified on cash dockets. A time to seek to escape faction in order to enjoy some fiction. Christmas is a time when we can run away from work, the jobs, the diet and reality. We run away from those we do not want to find us into the arms of those we do. It is a time of distraction; a time of healing; it is a time of zinc cream, afternoon naps, good reads and ice cream. It has been a good year but it is now time to stop, revive and survive promises to be a very exciting year and we will need our strength to engage with the opportunities it offers. But enough of that for now time now to enjoy a change of pace and maybe reflect on the timeless challenge there is in the Christmas story. The claims made with it are extraordinary and the implications within it are significant. continued on page 14 > Inside Pages 4-5: Page 6: Page 7: Page 8: Page 9: Pages 10-11: Pages 12-13: Page 14: Page 15: Page 16: Pages 17-19: Page 20: Pages 21: Page 24: the December Terracian John Fihelly Old Boy and politician Celebrating Excellence Deng and Delors the next step Patrick Keane High Court appointment Moments in time Year 10 photography Developing our sporting program College life 2012 pictorial montage GTOBA recognises alumni A tradition of strong student leadership Red and Black rewind soccer search College briefs Vintage Terracians GTOBA President s report Our sporting year Cover photo: Deng Arop excelling in Track and Field.

3 Point of interest Dana Schottlaender has travelled the long very long, way to Terrace. She has come from Buenos Aires, Argentina, via Medford, Massachusetts and Brighton in the United Kingdom. She has a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science and History from Tuffs University Medford and a Masters in History from the Universidad Torcuato DiTella Buenos Aires. Another impressive aspect of her CV has been in the field of Debating. Her experience as a competitor, coach and adjudicator is extensive. She was a member of the Argentine National Debating team for the World Schools Debating Championships in 2000 (in Cyprus), 2001 (Johannesburg) and 2002 (Singapore). She has adjudicated at world events, including the World Schools Debating Championship in Qatar in 2010 and the Pan American Debating Championships in Buenos Aires in But it is arguably as a coach that she has had her greatest success, guiding the Argentine National Debating Team at the World Schools Championships in Ms Schottlaender will begin as Terrace s Senior A Debating coach in She already has been involved with Terrace students during Debating trials held in October. My first impression from the trials was very, very good. There is amazing raw talent to work with, Ms Schottlaender said. Fluent in her native language of Spanish, and in English, while the Argentine students she coached spoke Spanish, they argued in English. Working with students at Terrace, who do not have to grasp a different language as well as the style and strategy, means her expectations are high. New Senior A Debating coach Ms Dana Schottlaender. I have great respect for Australians (Debating). I ve seen them win on the international stage. Their style and their strategy has been outstanding, Ms Schottlaender said. arguments and rebuttal and POIs will all be studied as part of the master classes. Invitations have been sent to schools across Australia. Time spent arguing is, oddly enough, almost never wasted. Christopher Hitchens, British-American author/journalist. Terrace always has had an impressive record in Debating. Former champion debaters and coaches Simon Quinn and Adam Pennicott will be taking master classes next month as part of Debating Masterclass 2013 hosted by Terrace. Simon (GT ) is a Rhodes Scholar and Australian Debating Champion. Adam (GT ) is a state Debating representative. Recent students, now Old Boys, to have excelled in Debating include Alex O Hara and Fergus Badenhorst who won the Evatt Trophy in 2010 and Hamish Lonergan and Damian Maher, who last year qualified for the national titles. The workshop at Terrace over the long weekend next year is aimed at advanced Debating students and coaches. Case foundations, what you believe and why, case preparation, creating It is an exciting time for Terrace Debating, Director of Culture Mr Neil Wharton said. Following the review of Debating held last year, our students already have benefitted from extra specialised coaching. For our boys to work with Simon in particular has been a real experience for them. To now have Dana as a coach for the Senior A Team is a real coup for Terrace Debating. n The Terracian is your magazine The Terracian is your quarterly College magazine.

4 Rascal or revolutionary At the height of World War I, Rugby Union international, Rugby League administrator and referee, Labor politician, cabinet minister and Terrace Old Boy, Jack Fihelly, stood up at a Brisbane Irish function and said, to loud applause: With regard to Hughes (PM Billy Hughes) and others who are endeavouring to force conscription of human life on the people of Australia, they should be reminded that Irish Australians were not being attracted to the recruiting station by the mailed fisted policy of Prussianism operating in Ireland. The opinion was held by many young Irish Australians that every Irish Australian recruit meant another soldier to assist the British Government to harass the people of Ireland. Only recently he had heard an Englishman in the Queensland Parliament say: Lord deliver us from cant. England was the home of cant, humbug, and hypocrisy. A good deal was heard about the cases of Captain Fryatt and Nurse Cavell, accompanied by denunciation of the Germans, who after all had only done such things against alien enemies whereas England had murdered people whose compatriots were fighting for her by the hundred thousand. It was more urgent to give to the Dublin Relief Fund than to patriotic funds here, however worthy, such as Returned Soldiers, Red Cross or other funds. (Brisbane Courier, 22/9/1916) Suffice to say, all hell broke loose after the speech was made public: The State Opposition unsuccessfully moved a no confidence motion in TJ Ryan s government, for not acting against the utterer of these disloyal and seditious comments; The Governor refused to sit in the Executive Council with Fihelly; Newspapers like the Courier railed against him and the government; Lodges and other patriotic organisations met and passed resolutions condemning Fihelly; Protestant clergy were appalled; and the list goes on. However, the government s leaders, Ryan and Red Ted Theodore, stood by Fihelly and, with Labor splitting in other states over the issue, Queensland became a key battleground state in the first conscription referendum campaign then underway across the nation and, throughout, Fihelly did not back down. John Arthur Fihelly was born in 1882 in Timoleague, County Cork Ireland, arriving in Queensland in August 1883 with his parents, Cornelius and Annie. He attended Gregory Terrace in the 1890s, where he learnt Rugby, and went on to play one Rugby Union Test for Australia, before becoming the father of Rugby League in Queensland. The Terrace Brave and Game entry states, Fihelly became not only a seminal figure in both Rugby codes in the early years of the 20th century, he went on to become a prominent and colourful individual in Queensland political and sporting life. He was elected to the Queensland parliament in 1912, as the Labor member for Paddington, becoming a minister in the Ryan Labor Government after its election in As one newspaper later said: It might be reasonably said of him, He had the most brilliant brain that ever functioned in Labor politics, State or Federal. (Western Champion, 19/7/1930.) Jack Fihelly at home in The Kangaroos with assistant coach Jack Fihelly second top row, third from left. Firstly, the magnitude of the casualty lists and the failure of the Dardanelles campaign to achieve its primary objective, of knocking Turkey out of the war, sent shock waves through This tough, nuggetty Irishman educated at a Catholic school run by members of an Irish religious order was sent to do a job, amongst a key and growing section of society, and he did it with spectacular success. Gallipoli and World War I are often described as a watershed in Australia s national development. The reasons, though, are more varied than the ones often discussed today. Fihelly s 1916 speech, and the resulting political uproar, is a reminder World War I was actually a deeply traumatic, unsettling and divisive experience for many Australians at the time. Fihelly s raw, blunt speech exposed the tensions within society, created by the war, like few other contemporary speeches. Australian society and thousands of Australian homes. Day after day Australians opened their daily newspapers to find long lists of casualties. After nearly 100 years, they are still difficult reading. Then, just days after Australia held its inaugural ANZAC Day commemorations, on Tuesday, 25 April 1916, the first reports of a disturbance in Dublin the day before Easter Monday were trickling through to Australia. Within a week it was a full-blown story, being eagerly followed around the country. 4 St Joseph s College, Gregory Terrace

5 The British Government reacted quickly to the Irish outrage and martial law was declared. Before long, despite the supposed heavy commitments demanded of Britain and its Empire by the war with Germany, British troops were crawling all over Ireland. Irish rebels were rounded up and the first executions carried out. These events were extensively reported in Australian newspapers. Sentiment within Irish communities around the globe rapidly switched from opposition to the unconstitutional methods of the Easter uprising to outrage at British heavy-handedness. Within that context the Australian Government tried to introduce conscription to lift inadequate voluntary enlistment numbers. Many working people and rural selectors, from all over Britain, had come to the new world to get away from Kings, Queens, Empires and the injustices of class-based societies. Their natural tendency to oppose conscription for a European war combined with the grievances, about the ongoing treatment of their homeland, now being felt by Irish Australians. Fihelly s speech was not a spontaneous rant. It smacked of a calculated propaganda move by the Queensland Labor government, which was playing an increasingly prominent role in the national campaign against conscription. The conscription supporters suspected as much also; describing it as designed to inflame the passions of the people. This tough, nuggetty Irishman educated at a Catholic school run by members of an Irish religious order was sent to do a job, amongst a key and growing section of society, and he did it with spectacular success. Why should Irish Australians be conscripted to fight in Europe while thousands of British troops, who could otherwise be in France, were stationed in Ireland policing martial law and killing Irish people? Jack Fihelly a dashing politician in The anti-conscriptionists won the October referendum and also won the second referendum a year later. Queensland voted against conscription on both occasions. In 1922, just after the Irish War of Independence and as Ireland was descending into civil war, the Queensland Government appointed Jack Fihelly as its agent-general in, of all places, London. Someone had a sense of humour. Men of spirit, bold, unjaded; They the haunts of fame invaded. n by John Moran (GT ) *John Moran is a Terrace Old Boy, historical author and journalist.

6 Humility, knowledge, wisdom and excellence Scott Moran Year 5 Academic Excellence award winner and First in Music, Strings and member of the Celebration Choir. Terrace s vision to provide a Catholic education in pursuit of excellence was shown to be more than just talk at the Celebration of Excellence Awards ranging from Dux of the College Tony Gong to CIC Basketball Best and Fairest Jack Ward were presented before parents and family at the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre in November. The presentation of academic, sporting and cultural awards was interspersed by performances from the College Drum-Line and the Terrace Celebration Orchestra and Choir. Jo Howard, Simon Mason, Ben Cunningham, Geordie McGrath and Alex Komarowski performed Luck Be a Lady Tonight and the evening ended with a stirring rendition of Terrace to the Fore by the Celebration Orchestra and the Seniors of The major award winners for the evening were Tony Gong who took The Laurence Healy Memorial Prize and Blessed Edmund Rice Award as College Dux and Thomas Panizza who took the Honourable Sir Joseph Sheehy KBE Memorial Prize as Proxime Accessit. Courtney Chambers won the SJ White Family Trophy for Best All Round Sportsman and Redmond Lopez the Terrace Performing Arts Award for Service to the Performing Arts. The Bond University Scholarship went to Lachlan Farr and the Australian Catholic University Vice-Chancellor Scholarship for Physiotherapy went to Luke Mead. The environment at Terrace, one built on skilled and dedicated staff, committed students and a strong relationship with family, once again resulted in outstanding academic achievements in Dean of Studies, Mrs Julie Quinn said: There have been so many highlights No man ever reached to excellence in any one art or profession without having passed through the slow and painful process of study and preparation. Horace (65-8BC) Every year it seems more and more students excel, not just academically but across-the-board College Principal Mr Peter Chapman said. In his Celebration address, Mr Chapman spoke of the challenge of a school in the Edmund Rice Tradition to promote that which is different that which differentiates us. Certainly we hope at Terrace that our faith pervades our learning that our Catholicism permeates the holistic education that is our mission. A Catholic education is a faith-filled experience that incorporates academics, campus ministry, sport and culture, and personal development as a means of creating young men who are prepared to make a difference. throughout our academic year from our Scholars Assembly in the first weeks of Term 1 to our medal assemblies and to our Evening of Excellence. We have witnessed boys receiving more academic medals than before and more prizes for Academic Excellence. While the medals and trophies are the tangible recognition of achievement, for me, the celebration is in the attitude and effort that our boys are willing to make towards their studies. The Celebration of Excellence signalled the beginning of a hectic month for the College, particularly, the Year 12 students, who completed their Terrace education just 10 days later with a farewell Assembly, Mass and Valedictory Dinner. n 6 St Joseph s College, Gregory Terrace

7 Striding into the future When Deng Arop competed in the GPS Open 400m hurdles it was after just six weeks of training. On the way, he hit two hurdles. That he won was amazing. That he finished just 1.2 seconds outside a World Junior qualifying time was almost unbelievable. Last year Deng wasn t even in the Track and Field team. In 2012 he was Captain. He also competed in the 400m, running 49.7s just weeks after finishing third in that same event at the State Championships. In both events he recorded massive PBs. Tall and obviously athletic, Deng is a latecomer to Track and Field. He had previously tried Cross Country but it was just six weeks prior to the GPS Championships that he was identified as a natural hurdler. Leading up to the event Deng received a crash course in hurdling from former Australian World Junior Decathlete Adam Bevis, a Terrace Old Boy from While he was excited at his performance, from a team rather than an individual point of view, and to compete in the World Juniors would undoubtedly be a thrill, Deng is more concerned with building a career. De lors Tuyishime playing for the First XI at Terrace and hoping for a career in aviation. Deng and De lors Tuyishime became the first Edmund Rice Scholarship recipients to complete their studies at Terrace last month. The Edmund Rice Scholarship Fund was established by the Gregory Terrace Foundation in In its five years of operation the Fund has received more than $1 million in donations and investment income. More than $360,000 has to date been granted for the needs-based Edmund Rice scholarships for young men attending Terrace. Private donations have been made by many members of the Terrace Family parents, past and present, Old Boys, and also the Terrace Ladies Group, Gregory Terrace Old Boys Association and the legacy of Mrs E Lonergan in memory of her husband through the Dr Frank Lonergan Scholarship Fund. Both young men are from war-torn African countries as far removed from Terrace as could be imagined. Yet for Deng, it took just a few hours for him to feel part of the Terrace Family four years ago, now seven years since he and his family fled Sudan for Australia. On the first day, I didn t know how to do my tie. One of the Year 12 boys helped me out. I felt welcomed straight away. At first I found it really challenging but I had adjust to it, to find a balance between sports, academics and what I wanted to do with my life. He now has his sights set on studying business at university, hoping to switch to law after 12 months. De lors arrived at Terrace in His mother and father are from Rwanda. De lors was born in Tanzania, his family escaping the war-torn country for Kenya before coming to Australia. At first when I came I found it pretty hard because Terrace is committed to academic work and I wasn t into it that much until I got it into my head to get into the work. I found it easier after that and I started getting better marks. De lors is looking into a career in the aviation industry something he feels he is able to do because he was able to go to Terrace. He feels that what he has been able to achieve is a direct result of being encouraged to achieve. Everyone in the class was getting good marks, I thought to myself I didn t want bad marks so I decided to improve myself. His transition to Australian life was made easier by his sporting ability. In 2012 he was named Captain of the First XI soccer. He also was selected in the GPS representative team. I was surprised because I m not a great communicator. I tried to talk more, to motivate the team but unfortunately this year the other teams were just better. It made it so much easier for my family having a scholarship here. It was much easier for my parents. n *In 2013, 17 boys will be attending Terrace as part of the Edmund Rice Scholarship Fund. Terracian

8 Justice is served Patrick Keane being presented with the College Captain s badge in 1969 by the Auxiliary Bishop of Brisbane the Most Reverend HJ Kennedy. Former Terrace College Captain and Dux, Chief Justice Patrick Keane has been appointed to Australia s High Court.

9 by Damien Cole A Kodak moment The Urban Dictionary describes a Kodak moment as a rare, one-time moment captured with a photo, or that should have been captured by a photo. While the financial disaster undergoing the Kodak company the one time undisputed world leader of film and photography and the advent of digital cameras means it might be more aptly described now as a Panasonic or Nikon moment one moment in time is still the goal of photographers around the world. It s no different at Waterford. The photography workshop was one of the many Immersion programs undertaken by the Year 10 students at Waterford and one in which they have continued to excel. On the front of the November 15 issue of The Terrace News a photo by Tom Dodson, which featured a simple red bench seat, was featured. Students chose a multitude of places and compositions for their photos four of which are featured on this page. n by Michael Rodden by Chris Lee by Aiden O Neill Terracian

10 Director of Athlete Development Brynley Abad in the College gym. Road to recovery In discussions on compliance with a counterpart from another GPS school, Terrace Director of Athlete Development Brynley Abad asked how that school tracked their First teams athletes. We don t (track them), we have 100 per cent compliance, he was told. Currently the compliance rate, across all sports for the 1sts elite program at Terrace, including gym sessions, is less than 35 per cent. It has improved. Rowing, for instance, is well and truly on board, Brynley said. Damien (Director of Rowing Damien Mitchelmore) is right behind the program and already the improvement is showing. Others sports are gradually seeing the light but some have been surprisingly slow on the uptake. Brynley s position along with that of Sport Administrator Emma Such, was created in the wake of the 2011 Sports Review. Brynley, an accredited exercise physiologist with a Bachelor of Human Movement Studies, has more than 10 years experience, delivering, writing and implementing speed, strength and conditioning programs. He is a former athletic performance coordinator and coach with the Queensland Reds and Australian Rugby Union and has worked closely with Reds coach Ewen McKenzie, including during the Reds Super 15 title-winning season. He also has worked with the ACT Brumbies, Australian Ice Hockey team and Sydney Roosters. Emma, who previously worked with the Brisbane Bullets and Brisbane Roar (both of which won premierships when she worked with them) has taken on much of the administrative and coordinating roles of the individual directors of sport, to allow them to spend more time coaching. She works closely with Director of Sport, Mr Damian Wright. The Review was prompted by a number of factors including some appalling sporting results, especially at the elite level, and the College s determination to be competitive at GPS level. For a College with such a proud sporting record, including success in sports such as Rugby, Rowing and Volleyball, recent premiership pickings have been lean. Following the review the College decided to build longterm, from the ground up to put systems in place for 10 St Joseph s College, Gregory Terrace

11 the future. There was no thought of adopting a band-aid solution to buy premierships. One of the changes incorporated was including sporting prowess as a selection criteria for admission to the College but students had to fit into the culture of Terrace. There would be no free rides just because someone had ability in a particular sport. Our Mission is simple to have an all-inclusive program for the development of student athletes in both their academic and sporting pursuits. The Mission adopted by the Sporting Excellence Program compliments the College ethos. It is complimentary to, not detrimental to, the academic goals. Our Mission is simple, Brynley said. To have an all-inclusive program for the development of student athletes in both their academic and sporting pursuits. But to ensure that Mission statement wasn t just talk, a change in attitude was needed. Quite simply, success wasn t going to come unless everyone was pulling in the right direction. We had to be not so reactive, Brynley said. By that I mean, we are developing the younger boys, physically and mentally through to when they are 17 when they move into top level schoolboy Rugby, Rowing or other sports. The quality, technique, strength, the physical preparation has to be there for the coaches to ulitilse and it also set the boys up for a healthier life, including decisions about their nutrition, their training and how to look after their bodies. But it isn t just about the physical, it s about developing them as young men through discipline and mental toughness. The program also isn t just about kids pumping iron in the gym. It is about technical efficiency in the gym and about nutrition and hydration. They re working (increasingly) harder in the gym and across all their sports and they need to look after themselves. There is solid scientific research behind the boys being healthy, fit, strong, disciplined and it s having an effect on their academics. There is a huge correlation between exercise and academics. I see what we do here not only being of benefit to our sporting results but also being of benefit to the academic program and the work being done by (College Principal) Peter Chapman and (Dean of Studies) Julie Quinn. Success hasn t come overnight. There has been improvement, significant in some sports, but not too much extra space has had to be found in the trophy cabinet just yet. I definitely think there has been improvement. Through our statistics and our tracking, we are getting more boys/ students through the gymnasium and we are getting greater feedback from parents, who have said the message is getting through to the boys. And the boys love it. After sessions the boys are coming up and shaking our hands (Brynley and assistant Henry Gilbert). They re really enjoying working hard. The benefit, for example, of added fitness and gym work, was shown this season by the First XV. While the team still finished closer to the bottom than the top of the ladder, they were competitive in all but one game during the season and were in winning positions in other games. The rowers are already showing the benefits of the extra hard work. Brynley said, and it has been a harsh lesson for some, that the vast majority of the boys now realise that they need to put in extra to achieve at elite levels. To return to the upper echelon of GPS sport, natural talent on its own isn t enough. Take Rugby for instance, our compliance is 34 per cent. There are eight or nine guys who consistently come (to the gym). To win a premiership you need 100 per cent compliance. You look at other very successful schools and it (100 per cent compliance) is a given. But the tide is changing. n **Information on the Sports & Conditioning program at Terrace can be found on the College website under Sport. There is information on areas such as nutrition, hydration, exercise massage and cooling down and recovery. The program also holds regular seminars for students and their parents. Rowers are already showing the benefits of the strength and conditioning program. Terracian
