From the Principal

As we embrace the blessings of unity and growth within our college community, let us also take a moment to reflect upon the significance of this week in the Church liturgical calendar. Sunday, March 25th, marked the fourth Sunday in Ordinary Time, a time of reflection and renewal in our faith tradition. In the Church liturgical calendar, Ordinary Time is a reminder to find the extraordinary in the ordinary moments of our lives, to seek God's presence, and to cultivate a deeper sense of reverence and mindfulness in our journey of faith. This week, may we have been inspired by the teachings of Christ to embrace the ordinary moments of our lives with gratitude, compassion, and love for one another.

This past week, I had the privilege of meeting with each pastoral group of our vibrant Year 7 students. During our conversations, the students shared their experiences and reflections on the recent camp and how much they are enjoying ACS on Tuesday afternoons! Their seamless transition into secondary education is a testament to their resilience, adaptability, and the unwavering support of our dedicated staff.
