2019 Founders' Day Dinner

Old Scotch Collegians are delighted to announce the keynote speaker at the 2019 Founders' Day Dinner as being Dr Ric Charlesworth (Cit WA, AO). Ric is a past parent of Scotch College, as well as a Doctor of Medicine with an Honorary Science degree and an Arts degree, majoring in Philosophy and History. He is a former Captain of the Australian Hockey Team and the Western Australian State Hockey Team and Cricket Team.

Ric was elected a Member of Federal Parliament in 1983 and retired ten years later. His plans to pursue medicine were diverted when he took on the position of National Coach of the Australian Women's Hockey Team from 1993 to 2000. Between 2009 and 2014 Ric was Coach of the Men's team.

The annual OSC Founders' Day Dinner will be held on Friday 25 October. Tickets will be available soon.
