A warm welcome to Term 3. I hope that our boys and their families had an opportunity for some much-needed rest, fun, friends and family time over the break. I am pleased to welcome new students, James Dunworth in Year 4, Samuel Jacobson and Byron Spiers in Year 9 and Noah Atley in Year 12. I am sure they will benefit from the warm welcome of the ATCommunity and will contribute strongly to it as well.
Three months ago, we paused for the Easter break in a time of great uncertainty. One of the pieces of advice I was receiving at the time was to prepare for the possibility that the boys may not return to on-site classes until August or even September! What a Term it has been.
2020 will go down in folklore as one for the ages! Thank you for your patience while we addressed our internet services issue from Saturday afternoon to Monday morning. No further changes to our assessment and exams schedule will be required as all services are now back to normal after our provider identified and fixed the issues.
My wife had a significant birthday on the weekend and the restrictions had been changed at just the right time to have her four brothers, their wives and her 88 year- old Dad over for morning tea yesterday.
We have been very pleased with the transition back to on site teaching and learning. It feels extraordinary that it has only been a week. The boys have generally settled back into usual routine and process well. Thank you for your terrific support of your sons and the College.
