The Thistle - An E-Newsletter of Scotch College, Perth, Western Australia

Boots and all...

As winter approaches I have noticed a lot of teenage boys at Rebel Sports getting new football boots. It is an exciting purchase and builds excitement for the season ahead. If you have purchased a new pair of boots and are looking to dispose of your old ones, please consider placing them in the bins provided at Scotch College Senior School Reception.

The boots will go to students at Balga High School and Balga and Maddington Primary Schools. Last year the smaller boots were particularly useful to fit out the Balga Girls Soccer Team.

Please ensure they are clean and tie the laces together and thanks for your support.

Tanzania Fundraising Quiz Night

Purchase your tickets now!

The Tanzania tour, in partnership with PLC, travels to Matipwili, a remote rural village north of Dar es Salaam to complete work aimed at improving educational opportunities. In 2018 we are aiming to provide funding which will build infrastructure to boost the internet service. This should allow us to keep in closer contact when back in Perth. In the past, students have laboured alongside local students and village tradesmen. We are holding a Quiz Night on 7 April to raise funs which will provide building materials and equipment to boost their internet. Book your tickets here.
