As Australians, we are a very proud nation. Often we hear something described as iconically Australian and we have images firmly entrenched in our memories of things that we see as iconically Australian. Iconic is a really great word; it is a word that we as Australians, use to capture that special Australian spirit we treasure.

5 Nolan have had the opportunity to take part in the Premier’s prize by being involved with the Queensland Government’s Commemorative Crosses Project. The purpose of this initiative is to ensure the Anzac spirit continues to be kept alive amongst young Australians.
ANZAC Day is always a proud time for our nation as we reflect on the formation of Australia and the foundations of the virtues which we culturally hold so dear. The themes of honour and courage were evident in Monday’s College liturgy. I shared the story of Manhattan’s St Paul’s Chapel and the significant role it played in allowing so many men and women to cope with the catastrophe on 9/11.
Though it may only be very early days, if the first combined rehearsal for the Brigidine College and Ambrose Treacy College Showcase Spectacular is anything to go by, it promises to be a huge success.
The very important Parent Feedback meetings will be held on Monday and Thursday next week. Due to the number of interviews required in the Middle and Senior Schools, interviews for Years 7-10 will commence at 1.30pm on Thursday 27 April. Periods 5 and 6 will therefore be cancelled for all Year 7-10 students on this day. Classes will run as normal for Years 4-6.
We know you have missed us over the holidays! Here is a review of the Sport Awards Night, Rugby in Armidale, Football at Nudgee, and some cracker shots from the footy versing St. Peters. What an amazing start to the Winter term! Just type in the ATC Vimeo password for 2017 and press PLAY.
Welcome back to Term 2 – hopefully everyone is refreshed and had an enjoyable holiday. Just before the holidays started, Andrew Taylor coordinated our annual Boys Day Out at the Rugby. Despite the weather and the final score, it was a fun-filled, edge-of-your-seats event for all the Rugby tragics! Thank you to Andrew for organising this event, and to the community for supporting it. As always, our wonderful P&F committee and volunteers have some great events coming up. Please book early to assist us with our planning.
