Boardies Day, Tuesday 5 December 2017

boardies day

On Tuesday 5 December, the whole school is invited to wear their board shorts with their school uniform. The day is aimed at improving awareness of water safety at the start of the summer holidays, and raising funds for Surf Life Saving Western Australia. The funds raised at Scotch will go directly to our closest surf club at Swanbourne Beach. See below for what clothing is acceptable on the day. Please note, school shoes and socks must be worn and shirts must be tucked in.

All Abilities Cricket at Claremont-Nedlands Cricket Club

As mentioned in the last Thistle, many of our senior cricketers are helping out at CNCC with their All Abilities team. Below is a photo after practice last week. The man in charge, Ralph Goodman, said it was one of the best sessions they have had.

Remembrance Day 2017

This year the two red tartans, Stuart House and Brisbane House, competed to see who could raise the most money for the Poppy Appeal for the Rotary Club of Cambridge. Results are not in but it was brilliant to see so many people get behind this cause and honour those who have served. The College ceremony was a solemn affair and, as always, does justice to the huge contribution our College has made to our armed services.

Disabled Surfing

Don't forget the first Disabled Surfing event for the summer takes place on 2 December. It is not a PSA sport day so we are hoping for a strong Scotch contingent down at Leighton Beach. Details at the website
