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

Getting ready for winter?

Along with cleaning out your gutters in preparation for winter, we strongly encourage you to clean out your wardrobes too. As in previous years, the College will be supporting the Bindaring Clothing Sale by having collection points at each sub school reception and clean and folded donations are very welcome.

This is a significant annual fundraising event for the Red Cross and promotes the reusing of unwanted clothes, which may otherwise go into landfill.

The Bindaring Clothing Sale attracts many buyers looking for a bargain, especially in the vintage and designer label/boutique sections. This year's sale is on Saturday 19 May from 9.00am - 3.00pm in the Robinson Pavilion at the Claremont Showgrounds.

You can drop donations off at each of the sub school receptions. Look out for the Red Cross boxes which will be removed on 11 May.

As well as clothing donations, we are also chasing any football boots which can be donated in the bin at Senior School Reception.

Year 9 East Kimberley Tour

All Year 9 parents should have received a letter seeking expressions of interest in the 2018 East Kimberley Tour. Below is an excerpt from the letter.

The trip will incorporate activities and visits with Kununurra District High School, specifically the Clontarf Academy, Doon Doon Community and Wyndham District High School. The focus will be on engaging with Aboriginal students in a variety of settings, building relationships between Scotch College and these communities and increasing our awareness of the rich and diverse cultures in the region.

Please send me an email if you did not receive this letter.

Mr David Kyle
Director of Community and Service
