Scotch Parents


Welcome parents to a new school year and what a fabulous way to begin with our Welcome BBQ on Tuesday 28 January. It was wonderful to see so many new (and old) families in attendance enjoying the many sausages, salads and refreshments on offer. In particular it was great to meet some of our boarding families dropping off their boys and this is why we always hold the event the afternoon before school starts. A huge thank you to our team of volunteers and Scotch Catering for what was a memorable evening.


Our Middle School Parent Sundowner will be held on Friday 21 February from 6.30pm. This is always a great evening where you have the opportunity to meet new parents in a casual environment. Please note the change of venue from the Gooch Pavilion to the Middle School Quad.


I’m really looking forward to meeting many of you throughout the year and would encourage you to visit the Scotch Parents group under “Scotch Groups” on Home.Scotch We will keep this updated with events, meeting dates and minutes and funding initiatives.
