Scotch Parents

As always, I am blown away by the amazing generosity and creativity of our parent community.  The Year 11 Dance on Saturday night saw the Dickinson Centre transformed over two long days into a fabulous Cuban Club…complete with food stands, vintage cars, panama hats and a host of other great decorations.  Many thanks to Sasha Jones and her very hard working team of parents for creating such a fantastic night for the boys and their partners.  We also received generous donations of equipment, fruit and items for the Dance… special thank you to Deb and Chris Edgar (Hire Society) and Nat and Tim Gardner (ArtRef). Also a big thank you to the Year 10 parent volunteers who gave up their Saturday night to make sure the evening ran smoothly together with Kale and Claire's hardworking Scotch functions team.

It was heartening to get so much positive feedback from the boys on the night and a big thank you to those Year 11 boys who also helped us pack up on Sunday.


Scotch Parents are pleased to be able to sponsor, through the voluntary parent contributions, renowned clinical psychologist and speaker Andrew Fuller.  Andrew is author of serval best-selling books including 'Raising Real People', 'From Surviving to Thriving' and 'Beating Bullies'.  He will address parents and staff next term on 'Building Resilience'.  Our funding committee are currently working through several exciting funding requests from staff and students.

The City Country lunch in Guildford was well attended and very much enjoyed.  Unlike previous years the weather was magnificent and it was a great opportunity to wander around historic Guildford and meet other parents.  Thank you to Kim Gray for her fabulous organising and also to Garry for getting us all there safely on the Scotch Bus.
