I am not sure who said this, some sources say Gandhi, but it doesn’t really matter as it is a great thought. In fact, it’s more than a thought, it’s a challenge and a mind-set. I can only speak for myself, but I find it both inspiring and challenging! Last week was quite a roller coaster ride as we watched the situation throughout the world continue to unfold, and, unfold closer to home in Melbourne and Sydney followed by Brisbane later in the week.

Recently, the ABC interviewed ATC teacher and Brisbane Lions player Sharni Webb. Sharni is Assistant Head of Year 9 and deftly manages her dual professional roles in the classroom and on the footy field with aplomb but admits the upheaval of this year’s season and the students learning from home have presented her with an opportunity for growth.
I spotted some stylish head wear around the College today as students and staff donned their favourite beanie to support our annual Beanies for Brain Cancer fundraiser. The money raised will go towards funding vital research into brain cancers and to raise community awareness around the disease. With many in our community suffering from this insidious disease, we stand in solidarity with them and their families. Thank you to the ATCommunity for your generosity.
