Parents' Association

Outgoing Committee members
I would like to personally thank the huge contribution that our outgoing Parents Association Committee members have played in enhancing the experience for boys and their parents through the 2016 school year. You have been a very committed group and I have enjoyed your support and energy in making 2016 such a big success.

In particular a thank you to Abby Fry - outgoing PA secretary - and Peter van der Zanden - outgoing PA Treasurer - as well as a number of committee members who will not be returning with the joint Scotch Parents structure in 2017.

Our interim Funding Sub-Committee has continued and will be co-ordinated by Melissa Harkins.

The last function for the PA this year will be to host a thankyou Sundowner for the various parent support groups that operate across the school and to thank outgoing teachers and staff that have given more than 10 years of service to Scotch. This is undertaken in conjunction with the Marketing and Development Department.

Upcoming Functions for Term 1 2017

2017 Scotch Parents Family Welcome BBQ - 30 January 2017
All Scotch families are invited to attend the 2017 Family Welcome BBQ to celebrate the commencement of the 2017 school year on Monday, 30 January 2017. Details to follow during the holiday break. We would appreciate your support to make a great evening even better and if you would like to assist please email Melissa Harkins on: herbh@iinet.net.au. Many hands make for a successful evening!

2017 Scotch Parents Biennial Ball - Saturday 1 April 2017
The theme for the Ball is "Fools Gold" in a marquee on the Scotch grounds. Save the date and plan a table! Our energetic Sub-Committee has worked hard to keep costs down to the same as for 2015. As always, this event is a not-for-profit event and a great opportunity to socialise with other Scotch parents, dancing the night away under a balmy starlit night. Watch out for updates early in 2017.
