A Joint Statement from the Scotch Parents Association (PA) and the Scotch Auxiliary (SA)

A very positive joint meeting was held with the PA and SA Committee's facilitated by Dr O'Connell and independent facilitator John Beech on the evening of Tuesday 16 August. The meeting was organised to discuss the potential of merging the two support groups to create one representative body across Scotch College. This fits very well with the future School Strategic Plan, recognising the important contribution that Scotch College parents make supporting our sons, staff and parents across all sections of the School community. A number of constructive points were made and further discussions on potential structures and roles will occur over the next few months.

As has occurred over the past two years, joint parent year functions will continue to take place. We also propose to form a joint Biennial Ball Sub-Committee very soon to coordinate the 2017 Parents Ball. If you would like to get involved please email either Ian Knobel or Carissa Paganin with your contact details.
