Dads@Scotch - upcoming Junior School Event
It is with great pleasure that we can announce the inaugural Dads@Scotch event - following on from the Fathering Forum launch earlier in the year. I attach the information sheet from convenor David Gray.
Hi Scotch Junior School Dads
Please diarise the afternoon of Sunday 23 October for the inaugural Scotch Father/Son Junior School sandcastle building competition. Final venue is to be confirmed, but planning on it being held at Swanbourne beach at 4.30pm Sunday afternoon 23 October.
The plan is that each year group (from Pre-Primary through to Year 5) will have an allocated space on the beach and one hour to build the most impressive sand construction that the boys and their dads can put together. BYO construction gear and decorations and start planning your design with the boys.
For those with multiple sons in the Junior School there will be 2 choices - your son can either stay in their year group and there will be enough time to spend with each son across the construction period or there will be an alternative family zone for those who want to stay together. Prizes and everlasting glory for the champion group on the day. After the competition feel free to hang around at the beach/picnic area for a BYO early dinner or sundowner. Younger siblings and sisters are welcome to participate too
