Year 10 Overseas Exchange Opportunities

Two opportunities for exchange have been received for boys currently in Year 10. While the details of each exchange are still to be clarified, both are for this academic year and would require independent overseas travel to the host schools.

A school in Vienna has a boy who is interested in attending Scotch College. The exchange would involve hosting the visiting student for five weeks at the start of Winter Term with the reciprocal visit to Austria likely to be at the end of our Spring Term. An arrangement would be made for borders to host the visitor on campus.

A school in Christchurch, New Zealand is also keen to set up an exchange for one of their students in Year 10, with the travel taking place during Autumn or Winter term.

For more information and expressions of interest on either of these opportunities, please contact Mr Cordner wjcordner@scotch.wa.edu.au.

Disabled Surfing

The next Disabled Surfers Event will be on Saturday March 15 commencing at 9.00am at Leighton Beach. Boys from Year 9 - 12 are encouraged to attend, if not required for a PSA sport fixture. Boys interested in attending should see Mr Cordner or pick up a letter from Senior School Student Services office.

Pancake Day

Last Tuesday, 19 boys took part in the Shrove Tuesday, pancake sale at Ross Memorial Church in West Perth. They worked hard in shifts throughout the day to raise over $800 for UnitingCare West services for disadvantaged groups in our society. The elderly members of the congregation who assisted were delighted to be once again working along-side the boys. A substantial donation has now been made to UnitingCare West.
