Scotch Parents

Scotch Parents received several funding requests this month for much needed equipment which have been approved by our Funding Committee:

  • The Scotch Gym will get 3 new Rogue exercise bikes to assist with the PE Department's fitness programs especially High Intensity Interval Training, cross fit and strength and conditioning programs;
  • Six all-terrain outdoor shelters for use at sporting and outdoor events where shelter from the weather is required;
  • Design and fabrication of a purpose built basketball play zone for the Middle School

These projects are funded by the generous parent voluntary contributions to Scotch Parents and will be of enormous benefit to our boys and our school community.

The next meeting of Scotch Parents is on Tuesday 2 July at 9am in the Dining Room Annexe. Please come along to hear a presentation from Scotch's Dean of ILT, Brad Tyrrell, on the new communications platform that has been developed for Scotch Parents and all other support groups within the school. It is a great initiative and extremely easy to use and will be a valuable tool in improving communication to our parent groups.

Scotch Parents have combined with the PLC Parents Association to organise a Parent Sundowner on Saturday 21 September 2019 at Cottesloe Golf Club.  This will be a casual get-together and a chance to mingle with parents from our sister school.  Invites and ticket details will be sent out soon.
