Over the past weekend we welcomed a number of new families into the Scotch Residential Life Communities. Our new families come from many different areas that cover all parts of Western Australia, Bali, Jakarta and Scotland. We are certainly developing a diverse community and one that exposes our boys to many varying cultures and traditions.
Our traditional Orientation Weekend occurred earlier this week over Sunday and Monday. For the majority of this group, it was the second time that they were able to meet after being given the initial opportunity at the Residential Sleepover in October last year. The boys certainly appeared very comfortable and mixed well with each other. After dinner on the Sunday night, the Year 12 Residential Leaders entertained the crowd with a quiz night. Some very thought provoking, and challenging questions were asked and overall a good night was had by all. This year we had the boys for an extra day as the Middle School boys did not return to school until the Wednesday. We had grand plans to spend our last day before school went back at Adventure World, but, because of the rain and the threat of thunderstorms we discovered upon our arrival that they had shut their doors for the day. After some quick thinking, and ringing around, we managed to squeeze in a couple of games of Ten Pin Bowling and Laser Tag. Overall, the boys had a great day and felt ready for the term ahead.
