Cross Country brought the whole school community together for an afternoon of action and fun. Our Cross Country enthusiasts gave good personal performances and the boys who aren’t as fond of running enjoyed the course and running with their mates. The pumping music at the finish line, supplied by Mr Bolt helped give Ulster the win, Leinster came in 2nd place, Connacht 3rd and Munster in 4th place. Overall there were some solid performances and it was a great way to start the long weekend.

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.
Our thoughts and prayers remain with those affected by the recent weather event and our thanks goes to the ATC Community for your support and understanding in ensuring the safety of our students and staff. On a very bright note, some Junior School boys created this large, decorative Easter egg which is now on display at Indooroopilly Shopping Centre for the ‘Schools Easter Egg Competition’. Our egg features some of the stations of the cross with Easter eggs painted as the symbol for new life and a purple bow representing the Cross. The bright orange and hot pink is unmissable and if you are at the Centre during the holidays, please stop by to see the display.
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.
