Scotch Parents

The 2019 Valedictory Dinner on Friday night was an amazing and memorable evening.  I had the opportunity on the night to thank the parents and families of our 2019 Leavers for their enormous contribution throughout their years at Scotch to our school. For many of you this is your last son to graduate from Scotch College and you will be greatly missed by our parent community.

A HUGE thank you to the following helpers that worked tirelessly to pull a very successful Valedictory Dinner 2019 together…

  • The new Year 12 boys who gave up their Friday night to be part of the celebrations and were fantastic waiters and ambassadors for Scotch
  • To Claire, Chef Scott and the entire Scotch Catering team for preparing and delivering over 556 meals
  • To the new cohort of Year 12 parents for their help in the lead-up, set-up and on the night – you worked tirelessly to ensure everything ran smoothly
  • To Sonia Reed, Kim Gray and their team of fabulous 'flower arrangers' – the flowers were stunning!
  • And to the exceptional Scotch team of Matt, Mel, Kate and Heidi – you made it all easy and your help and support was very much appreciated.

At the recent AGM of Scotch Parents we elected a new committee for 2020 headed by Kate Reynolds (President) and Monika Narula (Vice President).  Both Kate and Monika have been heavily involved with Scotch for a number of years and I thank them for taking on these roles and wish them well for 2020.

Many thanks to all of our Class and Year Reps for 2019 – you have pulled together many great activities and social events which have been very well attended.

Thank you once again for your support of Scotch Parents, I have enjoyed my time as President and meeting so many energetic parents.  It has been a pleasure working with you and I think we can be proud of the fantastic events we've organised and the beneficial projects we've been able to support in 2019.

Happy holidays!
