Mothers' Auxiliary

We are still hoping to appoint a Vice President for the Mothers' Auxiliary. No one has come forward and we are wondering what will happen next year without a President. Please contact clairstanley@iinet.net.au if you are able to help or can suggest someone you think would be ideal in the role.

The Junior School Mothers' enjoyed a lovely afternoon tea on 9 May at MacKellar Hall. Many thanks to all the Year 5 boys who helped serve afternoon tea, a splendid job, well done. Many thanks to Jodee Woodward and Jan Friday, our Junior School Reps for putting the afternoon together.

We had a special guest, Mr Gregg Wild Scotch Catering Manger attend our Mothers' Auxiliary meeting last Monday, where he discussed the following issues;

· The newly named Middle School canteen ' Piping Hot Café' is not able to operate as a Café for morning tea, the Mothers' Auxiliary hope this may change and open at some time in the near future. The opening of this to the parents will allow an easy solution to coffee mornings within the School grounds instead of finding a Café offsite.

· The Scotch community will not be able to borrow catering items when having a function away from the School grounds. Catering has lost equipment, crockery/cutlery etc. therefore if you are having a function off site you will have to make alternative arrangements.

· We also had the chance to discuss with Gregg planning and running of events, we thank him for his valuable advice in this area.

The Year 11 Dance is on this Saturday night and ticket sales will be closing on Wednesday 21 May. Get your tickets now through the Scotch College website www.scotch.wa.edu.au and click on the 'Book a Scotch Event' icon.

We wish all the boys an enjoyable evening and many thanks to all the parents involved with organising what will be a fabulous evening.
