Welcome to semester two, and I hope for parents it is not a case of feeling ‘thank God they are back at school’. Rather, I hope the holidays afforded families good quality family time and that this latest break saw your sons taking the opportunity to make your life a little easier rather than a lot harder.
I hope the holiday period provided families with a wonderful opportunity for rest and renewal. Term Three promises to be a busy one, particularly in relation to Learning. Ambrose Treacy is not a College which ‘stands still’ – frankly, this simply hasn’t been possible.
What is the meaning of life? A question most of us have asked in different stages of our life. Another one, what is my purpose? Both significant questions; yet I am sure the answer is different for us all. I spent a great deal of my life questioning why I was here and what my life was all about.
Yes, I’ve heard them all and you probably have too – jokes about percussion players can be harsh and downright mean! However, percussion is a crucial instrument – it is a big part of the modern day music we all enjoy and it can be found in almost every ensemble we have in our Music program at Ambrose Treacy College.
Holidays are an opportunity to have a break from normal routines. This hopefully is a refreshing time for staff and students. Term 3 begins next Monday – 15 July – for all students. The day will begin with a College assembly in St Francis Xavier Centre at 8.25 am where we will officially start Semester 2 plus welcome back Mr Senior as College Principal.
