Coming Up in Week 5 Term 4

We have been rocked by the tragedy this week at Dreamworld and our prayers are with those affected by the loss of lives. The ATC Whole School Outing to celebrate our year is scheduled for Friday 18 November. Plans were underway for Dreamworld to be the destination again this year. Obviously this will now be reviewed in light of the recent event. The safety of the boys is always paramount in decisions that the College makes. When final plans are decided I will communicate with all families.

New School App

The new ATC School App has been released and I encourage all families to download the app. This will provide a quick and convenient form of communicating important information to all families and in 2017 become our primary conduit for communication. Please follow the link below to download the installation and initial set-up instructions. For those families who had the old App installed, please delete this from your devices.

The new app provides easy access to all areas of College life including fast access to College contacts, the absentee line, sport and cultural messages, ATConnect, online payments, Parent Lounge and the new Media Gallery for college photos.

It is imperative that once you have installed the App, you ALLOW NOTIFICATIONS and then go SETTINGS and choose the things you want to subscribe to. This will include the sports your sons play, the cultural areas they are involved in, the after school activities they have joined and their Year Level. Once you do this, you WILL ONLY RECEIVE NOTIFICATIONS FOR THOSE AREAS. Detailed instructions are included in the installation guide which can be downloaded via the link below. If you have any questions, please email

Melbourne Cup

The ‘Race that stops a Nation’ is nearly upon us again. That means an opportunity to get together with friends and enjoy a special day. Tickets are now available to purchase for the ATC Melbourne Cup Ladies Luncheon. I am assured this is a ladies event not to be missed! Bring your friends and enjoy a day of fashion and racing. Details: Tuesday 1 November, 11am to 4pm in the Rosewood Room, Hillstone, Carawa Street, St Lucia. Your ticket ($85pp) includes a canapé lunch and a four hour drinks package which includes champagne, wine & soft drinks.
