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.

While politicians extol the values of positive relationships between men and women, at ATC we are encouraging healthy boy/girl friendships by giving boys opportunities to spend time with girls on the sporting field and in the classroom. While parents often fear the time in a boy’s development when he starts making friends with girls, I believe that in today’s social scene, boys and girls can form meaningful friendships without the next dimension.
On Wednesday evening we celebrated the end of a wonderful first term of sport at ATC. For the first time our talented musicians from the ATC Jazz Ensemble, Jazz Orchestra and Big Band joined us to make the evening even more celebratory. It was an entertaining and fantastic experience for everyone.
Whilst the co-curricular program at the College runs year round, there are many significant beginnings, milestones and endings during this time. Saturday saw the very end of the summer sports season and the culmination of fantastic seasons in triathlon, cricket, volleyball, water polo, indoor cricket, paddle play and canoe polo.
Tomorrow is a National Day of Awareness of bullying and violence. To show our support for this initiative all students are encouraged to wear either orange or green clothes. At second break we hold the first event of the 2017 Charter Cup, the Staff vs Students year long sporting challenge. With Gaelic Football as our first event it promises to be a great opportunity to build relationships, have a bit of fun and hopefully keep all aging hamstrings intact! Best of luck to all involved tomorrow!
