VALE

Our College family has been stunned by the sad news of the passing of Br Terence Heinrich, Headmaster 1991 – 1996.  Br Terence will always be remembered for his passion for making Jesus known and loved and creating the Salla Lavalla School in Cambodia.  To many of us, Br Terry is a saint but best described in Water from The Rock. 

At the heart of Marist spirituality coming from Marcellin and the first Brothers is humility.  It expresses itself in simplicity of behaviour, most especially in our way of relating to God and to others.  We strive to be persons of integrity – truthful, open-hearted and transparent in our relationships. 

I will always cherish a congratulatory email I received from Br Terence when it was announced I was coming to Ashgrove as the first lay Headmaster.  He was always very genuine in his affirmation. The most gifted orator I have heard and his legacy for the House system will be a constant reminder of his care “for the good of the boys” Rest in Peace.
