There are many moments of joy at Scots. However, this week I was fortunate to share in the Year 12 Music recital. Among the strong performances of our most accomplished musicians, I reflected on their journey to that moment in time.
Scots has just returned from a successful exhibition at the 2013 Boarding Schools Expo. A number of regional families took advantage of the opportunity to meet Mrs Heather Norton, and Heads of Boarding, Mrs Kimberley Jones and Mr Luke Newson.
Thank you to our Boarder Parent Group representative, Mrs Caroline Maskus, who met with prospective families and offered a parents perspective and her daughter, Year 8 Boarder, Anna Maskus, who travelled home to assist at the expo, offering a boarders' perspective.
The Year 5 and 6 musical is a tradition at Scots and this year the students have been working with a musical adaptation of Kenneth Grahame’s classic tale Wind in the Willows. The car has arrived, the stoats are on call and the four timeless friends, Mole, Ratty, Badger and Toad, are ready to take the audience on an adventure down the river and into the shadows of the Wild Wood.
I have completed Modules 1-3 and am part way through Module 4 of the innovative Principals as Literacy Leaders (PALL) program. The information presented is evidence-based, the result of deep and authentic research.
