Educating “anyone who would come” was the humble vision of the Christian Brothers who founded St Joseph’s College, Gregory Terrace over 142 years ago. This vision remains equally significant in 2018, as Terrace commits to offering boys a holistic education steeped in the significance of our Catholic values, personal formation and the pursuit of academic excellence.
The Gregory Terrace motto, Servire Deo Sapere or ‘To Serve God is to be Wise’, is a visible reminder of our commitment to identify and develop every boys’ talents and gifts, forming gentlemen of faith and courage whose learning can be used to make a difference in the world.
‘Shoulder to Shoulder’ is the motto of the Gregory Terrace Senior Class of 2018. Led by College Captain Jacob Montaner, Shoulder to Shoulder captures the spirit of the cohort, as they aim to lead and support their fellow students and the wider Terrace Family through upcoming opportunities and challenges.
Shoulder to Shoulder recognises their commitment to honour the proud academic tradition of the College. With 60 students receiving an OP1 and OP2 in 2017, the Class of 2018 are working together to uphold Terrace’s outstanding academic legacy.
Our faith is central to everything we do, from the classroom to the sporting field, we challenge our students to foster quality, compassionate relationships in the spirit of Blessed Edmund Rice. House Friendship Groups enable students to walk with several community support groups such as Youngcare, Brisbane Youth Service and Orange Sky Laundry, and in doing so extend their faith outside the school gates.
Each student at the College is supported to be the best that he can be through a House-based pastoral care system. Year 12 students assume the role of a ‘Big Buddy’ to new students in Years 5 and 7. The Terrace Family - staff, students, parents, Old Boys and friends of the College, all nurture each student on their journey to being gentlemen of knowledge, humility and wisdom.
