2018 has started in typical super-busy ATC fashion, and it is hard to believe that we are already only a week away from our Autumn Co-curricular Music Evening. There have already been so many positives to take away from the first lessons and rehearsals of the year, and from the Junior Band Day which marks the beginning of what will hopefully be the start of a life-long journey of music learning for our beginner students.
Following on from a fantastic Volleyball season, we are excited to offer our Volleyball players a great opportunity to represent Ambrose Treacy College in this key growth sport. The 2018 Australian Volleyball Schools Cup being held in Melbourne, is not only the largest secondary school sporting event in Australia, but the largest in the Southern Hemisphere! In 2017, the Australian Volleyball Schools Cup saw 2200 matches played by 534 teams with over 6000 students participating across four venues in Melbourne.
There has been some precipitation around in the early morning of the last couple of Saturdays, as my webbed feet will attest, but it’s not been rain that has caused problems for motorists, cyclists and pedestrians whilst utilising Witton Road. Left handed batsmen Ryan Mayer and Hayden Snowden from ATC 4 Cork took to the Valley Hawks bowling attack on Brothers Oval West on 10 February 2018 hitting a number of deliveries over the fence and onto the road. So frequent was their dispatch that a parent was strategically placed to return the ball in good time. There is no truth to the rumour that The Workout Fitness Centre closed their shutters whilst ATC batted!
Our co-curricular program is diverse and aims to offer something for every boy. As the first four weeks of term slip by, we look at some areas of Co-curricular life that are involving and engaging boys across sport and after school activities.
