Catholic schools in the Edmund Rice tradition have an established excellence in pastoral care and at Ambrose Treacy College we consider pastoral care to be central to our culture. We provide a vertical pastoral care system for our students in Years 9, 10 and 11. The Vertical House System allows for students to develop connectedness to a range of students across many year levels and further enhances community spirit within their House and the College.

Jesus grew up in a confusing and intimidating time. His parents faced multiple challenges. Politicians had hidden agendas. People of contrasting faiths frequently clashed. In many ways, the historical context is not dissimilar to our 2017 reality.
“Give to others, and God will give to you. Indeed, you will receive a full measure, a generous helping, poured into your hands—all that you can hold. The measure you use for others is the one that God will use for you.” Luke 6: 38 (GNT)
Last Friday we celebrated the 16700 plus hours of service completed by students this year.
The Ambrose Treacy College House system was officially launched after our Opening Mass in Term 1 with a House assembly. Each House met in a different area of the school and practiced their war cries, participated in some games and learned some history about the mascot of each House. The Year 10 House Captains were instrumental in leading the war cries and assisting with the organisation of the assembly and they should be commended for this.
Our students and staff are committed to engaging in the service of others in our community. This was extremely evident on Sunday, as the Junior School joined in the annual Walk for Brain Cancer at New Farm Park. Carrying helium balloons, our group made quite an impact as students, staff, families and their pets joined together to raise funds and awareness for a disease that is the biggest cancer killer of all people under the age of 40.
