Next Tuesday the boys will celebrate Ambrose Treacy Day with a special series of learning activities. Br Patrick Ambrose Treacy has been remembered as a wonderful scholar who worked hard and valued learning. Our College prayer includes direct reference to Ambrose when the boys pray “Learn and Live Ambrose in our heads”. The “book” component of our College crest also relates directly to Ambrose and his example of Learning. Next Tuesday is designed to give the boys a positive learning experience and to enhance their approach to their learning. Details of each year level activity is included below. I thank our staff for developing such a diverse and engaging range of activities to offer the boys.
The Hall was abuzz with trivia, crazy outfits and competitive juices last Saturday as the P&F ran a very successful Trivia Night, with more than 200 parents eager to out-do, out-dress and out-perform their competitors and take out the coveted TRIVIA TROPHY. It was fantastic to see the creativity of each group as the tables and outfits had a great multicultural feel from countries around the world. A special thank you to Be Bradshaw who did a great job in planning and executing a very enjoyable night. It was typical of our famous ATC ‘friend raising’ with a wonderful community feel to it.
As part of Catholic Education Week we celebrated the young men in our community who have consistently displayed good characteristics in learning, leading and service. The Signum Fidei breakfasts were very enjoyable mornings when students, who were nominated by their teachers, gathered with their parents and staff to be acknowledged for their efforts.
The College community today celebrated NAIDOC with a Mass for all students, followed by activities for Years 4-7 students. This is a significant celebration for our community and acknowledgment of the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures. It also provides an opportunity for our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander boys to lead different activities with the other students. A full gallery of photos from today’s Mass is available on our Facebook page.
