Coming Up in Week 7

Carving up the waves at Dickie Beach.

Our students have had the opportunity to experience independence this week at Camp, many being taken out of their comfort zones and challenged to do things that are new or perceived to be beyond their capability. An important part of forming young men is to look at ways they can be challenged to experience the highs of achievements and learn to deal with the challenges of disappointments. Camp Week is an opportunity for boys to develop friendships, work as a team and build resilience through structured activities, games and programs led by experienced and qualified outdoor educationalists.

Clean Up Australia Day at ATC

On Sunday 5 March we will test the “More hands make light work’ adage in an effort to clean up the surrounding creek and river banks bordering the College grounds. It’s also a great way to notch up a few hours of service. You must register online before having your name ticked off at the Twigg Street drop off zone at the Basketball court Sunday 5 March. Children 12 and under must be accompanied by an adult. Click here to register and get more details of our Clean Up Australia Event and if you decide to join us, click the Join this Site button.

House Lunch
Both tuckshops will be closed at LUNCH for the House BBQ lunch on Thursday 9 March. We are still open for Breakfast and Morning Tea.

Tuckshop Volunteers needed
Both tuckshops need your help, just one day per term or one day per month. We can continue to keep our costs low if we can get enough volunteers. It is a great opportunity to meet other mums and dads if you are new to the school. The environment is fun and friendly. You even get free lunch and a cuppa at morning tea!
