A lot is happening straight up in Term 4 and I invite you to peruse the upcoming events.
It has been a very busy and positive term with staff and students very much looking forward to the holidays. There are significant celebrations, carnivals and learning activities planned for each day of Week 10. The windy weather has eased, the river was glassy and our Fishing Club members enjoyed throwing in a line this morning practicing for next weekend’s trip to the Gold Coast waterways.
What a week it has been for our Year 12 OP students. They sat the four components of the QCS Test on Tuesday and Wednesday, along with thousands of Senior students across the State. For ATC the QCS had an extra special significance as it was our very first QCST and due to the change in Senior schooling in Queensland, was also our last ever QCST. The Year 12’s did their very best, as we ask of ATC students. They were well prepared by Ms Kath Little and her team, they stay focussed, were calm and worked to the end of each of the demanding sessions.
This morning had an extra buzz with two exciting events across the College. Hundreds of Dads, Granddads and Uncles enjoyed a Father’s Day breakfast with the boys. The Westcourt deck is such a lovely place in the mornings, overlooking the river and it was wonderful to see it filled with so many happy, proud smiles. I wish all our Dad’s a very happy Father’s Day on Sunday and hope it is filled with quality family time.
