As the year draws to a close I would like to congratulate all our students on an exceptional year. Teaching for me is a tremendously rewarding profession; the rewards are in the experiences we are afforded to share. In particular one of the joys of teaching is to sit back at the end of the year and see the growth and changes in students over the year.

In the age of instant gratification, schools continue to defy the odds. Real-time payments, video-on-demand, a need for something…NOW. I described teaching to someone the other day as “playing the long game in an instantaneous landscape”. Where students are craving the next fad, teachers are meticulously and carefully crafting a logical succession of steps to teach their students the concept at hand. Unfortunately, (from the student’s point of view), while Rome wasn’t built in a day, neither is the teaching of direct proportion, geometric proofs or covalent bonding.
Catholic schools in the Edmund Rice tradition have an established excellence in pastoral care and at Ambrose Treacy College we consider pastoral care to be central to our culture. We provide a vertical pastoral care system for our students in Years 9, 10 and 11. The Vertical House System allows for students to develop connectedness to a range of students across many year levels and further enhances community spirit within their House and the College.
