Scotch Auxiliary

Last Monday, Marcus Wilkinson, Director of Residential Life, Michelle Grosse, Personal Assistant to the Director, and Pam Seaby, House Mother Years 10-12, joined our meeting as guest speakers to talk about life in the Scotch boarding house. It was enlightening to get a snap shot of the boys' daily life on campus and to inform us how we can become more involved with our boarders.

Over more recent years there has been some suggestion from our parent community as to the merit of Scotch Auxiliary merging with the Parents' Association to form one parent support group that represents all parents at our College. This term the College has engaged an independent facilitator, John Beech, to guide us. We were fortunate to have John attend our meeting and discuss how a potential merger, working within the College's strategic plan, could further enhance our parent community while continuing to support our boys going forward. Our Headmaster, Dr Alec O'Connell, will be joining us at our next meeting to discuss his vision (please see below for meeting details).

Congratulations to all involved in another successful Junior School Parent Quiz Night. By all accounts, a great night was had by all!
