Coming Up Week 7

Mr Vocaturo and the Guitar Ensemble entertained guests at the iCentre Opening Celebration on Tuesday evening.

It was a pleasure last night to attend the opening of the New Westcourt iCentre. Congratulations to Mrs Ros Peters and her team for putting on a lovely function on the delightful Westcourt deck. It was a wonderful opportunity to see our new Westcourt iCentre and precinct, enjoy the company, and hear about books suitable for young boys, teenage boys and adults.

Also, thanks to our group of very talented guitarists and vocalists for entertaining the crowd. These guys are looking forward to another gig after such a successful start to their professional careers. Many thanks to Quentijn Whitfield; David Keady; Sean Forrest; Zach Williams; Jake Rennie and Aiden Trevor and to our charming Mr Vocaturo for assisting and managing the entertainment.

Assembly Performance

Every Friday we have a musical group perform at College Assembly. Last Friday it was the turn of our Sax ensemble to perform. It was fantastic to hear such an energetic group entertain the assembly on their first ever public performance at ATC. I am looking forward to hearing more from this sensational group at the Winter Concert on 2 June. On the topic of music, our first ever Music Tour to Sydney is fast approaching – and the Sydney Opera House tickets are now available.

Mum’s Connect Program

During Term 1 the College conducted a very successful Dad’s Network. This involved over 80 Dad’s meeting once a week over five weeks to provide information, share stories, acknowledge successes and develop strategies to best support their sons. The College is now planning an ATC MUMS CONNECT PROGRAM from Monday 23 May 2016.

If you would like the opportunity to be involved in our inaugural ATC Mums Connect program, please email The four week program is free of charge. The first week will be facilitated by Andy & Caitlin Roy (ATC parents) of Powerhouse Programs and subsequent weeks will be led by Caitlin. Andy will introduce some key topics / issues from the dads program so mums can gain an understanding of what the men explored. The mums program is designed to align with the dads program which is a fun and meaningful experience that honours and supports the changing nature of the relationship with your son(s). Participants are guided on a journey that deepens the relationship and supports them to make the vital changes required at this important developmental stage in your son(s) life. The program is open to any mums, step mums, grandmothers, aunties, or any other significant women who are active in the life of your son(s) at the College.

When: Each Monday from 23rd May to 13th June 2016 (4 weeks)
Time: 6:30pm – 9:00pm
Where: Chapel of St Joseph – Ambrose Treacy College
Questions: Please email the Dean of Formation, Mr Conor Finn
