Scotch Parents

The Scotch Parent community is renowned for the selfless and often unrecognised contributions made by parents to enhance the boys experiences at Scotch College. This can range from little things such as helping out at morning teas for class and year groups to supporting and participating in sports, drama, arts, music and community events across the school.

A number of "milestone" events are also run by Scotch parents throughout the year which almost always take everyone's breath away with their artistic brilliance and sheer hard work.

The most recent of these was the Year 11 Dinner Dance held to the theme of "Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory"

We would like to give special thanks in recognition to the hard working Committee:

Tania Hollingsworth, Louise Jones, Simone Wright, Melissa Harkins, Margaret Shine, Suzette Harding, Tania Easton, Anna Lane, Lorna Shaw, Donna Jackson

An army of Year 11 parent helpers converted the DC into a magic experience over several days and many more volunteered on the night for ticketing, cloakroom, refreshments and security.
