The Thistle - An E-Newsletter of Scotch College, Perth, Western Australia

We are currently in a period of transition. We have postponed all our upcoming events, however, the mood is cautiously optimistic. We hope that over the next few weeks we can begin to tentatively reschedule events for the coming months. Of course, each event will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis, depending on the risk assessment of the alumni involved.

While we are unable to connect with our alumni in a physical sense, we are doing our best to connect in other ways. As mentioned in the last Thistle, we delivered a number of care packages to our senior alumni, consisting of food from the scotch College Dining Room and drawings and letters from Junior School students. We have now also worked with Service and Citizenship team to roll out a letter writing programme, connecting Senior School students with a senior OSC. Both of these initiatives have been extremely well-received by all involved; staff, students and alumni alike.

We will soon roll out an initiative to showcase our alumni businesses. We want to try and do our part to ease the burden on those OSCs who may be feeling the pressure due to reduced business. Whether you are a tradie who is following all the protocols, or a cafe who is now moving to a takeaway or delivery service, let us know!

If you have any concerns or queries, or if you want to help out in any way, please do not hesitate to contact the OSC office.
