8.7 On the Road to Reflection

To quote Alfred Mercier, "What we learn with pleasure we never forget".  Over the past few weeks the boys in 8.7 have been reflecting on their Middle School journey at Scotch College.  Whether they've been a part of the Middle School community for one year or three, the boys were asked to think about some of the highlights of their journey and the things they like most about being a part of the Scotch community.

So, before the 8.7 boys walk across the stage at this year's end of year Speech Night together with the remainder of the Year 8 cohort, they took some time to talk about the important friendships they've established during their time in Middle School.


During Moray camp, our boys experienced sleeping under the stars, hiking, cooking home-made pizza dough and the sharing of ghost stories. Usually things go to plan; however, this term in English, 8.7 has been studying the play Compass by Jessica Bellamy and exploring what happens when school camp goes wrong. Great characterisation, expressive use of language and real camping props have enabled our play to come to life.
