Community News Week 9

It has been a great term and hopefully our many P&F events are helping families become involved in the community. The ATC Book club has been formed and aptly named “Reading Between the Wines”. From all accounts it was a sensational evening. For more friend-raising, our Year 5 and 7 family events in the park will be held this weekend and we hope the sun continues to shine.

If you have been lucky enough to secure tickets to the Rugby Boys Day Out, remember to meet at Gregory Park, Milton at 4:30pm on Saturday 1 April. All ATC fans will have a BBQ, collect your ticket and commemorative ATC cap and head to Suncorp Stadium to see the Reds take on the Hurricanes. For last minute ticket purchases this weekend click here to grab. Download the link below for the info flyer or email Andrew Taylor.
