Parents' Association

Funding Approvals

At the last PA meeting the Committee approved the purchase of 10 timing clocks for the Chess Club.

We were treated to a very professional presentation by two boys representing the Club, who articulated a strong justification for the funding. They also provided us with an overview of their upcoming competitions and we wish them well.

We will be encouraging the Senior School Leadership Group to submit a funding proposal over the next few months. This is in line with the water fountain project developed by last year's Year 12 Group. We encourage the boys to think "outside the square" to leave a legacy that all boys can enjoy.

Upcoming Parent Functions

The Scotch Parents Association in conjunction with the Scotch Auxiliary manages a number of Parent functions throughout the year. These Year Group functions are annual events and a great opportunity to meet other parents in your boys year group(s)

Wednesday 23 March - Year 7 Parent Evening - Steve's Hotel

Thurssay 9 June - Year 8 Parent Evening - The Middle School Gallery (details to be confirmed)

A very successful Year 9 House Head Dinner was recently held, as was the Year 6 parent Evening at the Boulevard Hotel on Friday night.
