Scotch Parents

March Out is always a very special occasion and a lovely and moving tribute to our leaving Year 12 boys.  We wish you all the best of luck for your final exams and thank you for your wonderful leadership and for being amazing mentors for our younger boys.  A huge thank you to all of the parents who volunteered to help setup, serve and pack up morning tea at March Out – you were a great group to work with and extremely efficient!

There is a meeting of Scotch Parents tomorrow (Tuesday 22 October) in the Dining Room Annexe at 9.00am.  We have invited all of our departing Year 12 parents to attend morning tea after a very short meeting so that we can thank you for your valuable contribution to our parent community throughout your years at Scotch.

As I have a son who has just started Year 12, I will be vacating the role of President at the AGM in November.  Long serving committee members Lucia Barrett and Trish Hawkey will also be stepping down.  We are looking for some new and energetic parents to come onto the committee in 2020 – it is always a lot of fun and a great opportunity to be involved with the Scotch parent community.  If you are interested in finding out more please contact us at

The inaugural Scotch/PLC Sundowner at the end of last term was a great success.  Over 300 parents attended and the feedback was very positive so we will definitely put that on the calendar again for 2020.
