A highly productive and busy Term One is about to reach it’s conclusion. The final assessment tasks need to be completed next week and then we will ‘celebrate’ the end of term. This will be in three sections – the Interhouse Cross Country Carnival, the Lenten Fayre and the End of Term Easter Liturgy. Each of these items are significant in their own way.

The focus at Ambrose Treacy College is on continuous assessment and feedback. Teachers are expected to upload results and comments for each assessment task within two weeks of the assessment due date. Parents are able to access this information on SEQTA. Term 1 reports will thus focus more on the general progress of a student in each of his classes, along with a comment from his homeroom teacher. These will be available on SEQTA on Thursday 30 March.
It looks like we are aiming for another busy week around the College. It was wonderful hearing so many positive reactions to camp week and particularly from the Year 10 boys who excelled in the new Senior School program which offered a variety of programs from coast to country and the city to the beach.
Our students have had the opportunity to experience independence this week at Camp, many being taken out of their comfort zones and challenged to do things that are new or perceived to be beyond their capability. An important part of forming young men is to look at ways they can be challenged to experience the highs of achievements and learn to deal with the challenges of disappointments. Camp Week is an opportunity for boys to develop friendships, work as a team and build resilience through structured activities, games and programs led by experienced and qualified outdoor educationalists.
In today’s technological focused world, it is important we provide opportunities for the boys to get outdoors and away from their normal routine. It is a significant time for all students next week with Year level camps across the College. Year level camps play an important role in our formation program for students.
