ATC Foundation Long Lunch Event
The Ambrose Treacy College Foundation is pleased to be able to host the third ATC Long Lunch on Sunday, 12 September at 12.00pm on the lawn of Brothers Oval. This community event aims to raise funds to support a bursary for a young man to attend the College who may not otherwise have the opportunity.
Tickets will be released on Friday 11 June, and a table of 10 is $750. Our 2019 and 2020 ATC Old Boys are encouraged to attend at the special price of $25pp or get a table of 10 friends together for $250. Food is BYO, entertainment is provided and drinks are for sale at the bar. This is an 18+ event. We look forward to a wonderful community occasion.
A significant milestone in the history of the College has taken place with Patrick Robinson, College Captain of 2019, becoming a Director of the Ambrose Treacy College Foundation Board to formally commence our Old Boys Network journey. Welcome and thank you Patrick!
It was great to see so many boys and families on Jack Bowers Oval for sport on Friday afternoon and Saturday for our Football and Rugby games against Padua College, St Patrick’s Shorncliffe and St Joseph’s College, Gregory Terrace. Thank you to our volunteer team who have assisted to get our canteen running again, our many helpers, coaches, Grounds and Property Staff, Music staff for the Taiko Drums which feature at all Reds Rugby home games and our Sport leadership team of Mr Damian Steele, Mr Jarrod Turner, Mrs Lisa Mortlock, Mr Michael Wright and Mr Brandon Wellington who continue to expand and consolidate opportunities for our boys.
Experience has taught me that Week 7 of a term is when it is important that we all do the simple things well in order to finish the term positively. We have a busy three weeks of term remaining and some students and staff grow tired during this time.
Some possible tips:
• Time for a re-set; haircut, shine shoes, tidy room, clean out school bag and the locker.
• Less online time; limit screen time post 8pm whether it be scrolling, social media, gaming and even school work-busy minds need time to unwind to get a decent sleep.
• Balance; fun, relaxation, sleep, exercise, school work-team work makes the dream work.
• Work rate; this should be a time of term where the benefits of a steady study routine are kicking in and an increase rather than a last minute cram is what is required with assessment work, revision and preparation.
I ask the community to please keep these students, staff and their families in your thoughts and prayers during their time of need. We hope that the passage of time will help heal the pain of their passing.
