There is no doubt that a sense of belonging can help shape a student’s education. At ATC, we value and prioritise a sense of belonging and believe it is fundamental to a student’s identity and wellbeing. To belong is not just a feeling of being accepted, it’s a feeling of attachment, support, pride and love for one’s school.
At ATC our school promotes genuine reconciliation and while we are always promoting the success stories of our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander boys, NAIDOC Week is time to celebrate the history, cultures and achievements of our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities.
It has already been an energetic year as the College Vice – Captains for 2021. When reflecting on the year thus far, we have enjoyed supporting and championing our fellow ATC students and the ATCommunity. Each day varied from the next and we have acknowledged the call to be leaders at ATC, paving our own way, whilst honouring the lessons from our past graduates.
Dear ATC Community,
The Feast Day of Blessed Edmund Rice is celebrated around the globe on 5 May each year. We were fortunate as a school community to be able to gather for two sacred rituals last week where, through scripture, prayer and action, the life of Edmund was shared.
