Principal's Message

The door to Scots is always open. This is an inclusive community which nurtures wellbeing and self-esteem. A place where every person is known, valued and cared for. This is where students are nurtured, and where students thrive. Scots is a school with a strong sense of purpose and exceptional support.

Welcome to Scots in 2022.

It is a privilege to be a part of this School’s long, proud history. As we celebrate 50 years of Scots in the Albury community this year, we have the opportunity to reflect not only on the past 50 years, but all that went before.

We have much for which to be thankful; our founding schools established traditions that have endured; leaders made economic and philosophical decisions that secured the School’s future and students contributed to a culture which resonates as much with contemporary students as with our alumni.

Scots is a place where our students are given the encouragement to try new skills and uncover talents they didn’t know they possessed, and it is always wonderful to see the unique strengths and contributions of each and every student. Our Year 12s are approaching their year with commitment and endeavour and I'm confident our School Leavers will be well equipped for a bright future in whatever field they choose. 

Our innovative Curriculum and Co-Curricular activities foster new experiences and challenges, development of skills, problem solving in different situations, working as a team, acquiring respect for the environment, all of which offer an important dimension to the learning and personal development of the individual.  

We have strong tradition, beautiful grounds and a history that proudly determines who we are, but the mark of our school is its over-arching respect that its members have for each other. 

Scots is a learning community, not simply a collection of people. The pursuit of excellence, of academic rigour and of a system of values to draw upon will continue to benefit the young people in our care both today and into their future.  

I look forward to welcoming you to the Scots community.

Mr Mark Geraets ○ Principal
