From the Principal • Mark Geraets
We certainly finished Term 2 in a whirlwind of activity! In the past week, alone, we celebrated the 50 Years of Scots Gala Dinner on Saturday, our first Giving Day in a very long time on Tuesday and then in the evening we capped off activities with our Music Festival.
You will see a pictorial representation of each of the events later in this newsletter, but I want to thank everyone - staff, students and parents - for their continued support at events such as these.
Parents do an amazing job of getting their children to the various practice sessions and then to performances and special events on top of their day to day commitments. I know some parents were at basketball grand finals on Tuesday moments before arriving for the Music Festival and some even helped out in the Call Centre headquarters for our Giving Day before going to basketball and then the festival.
We are truly blessed to have such engaged parents.
The Gala Dinner on Saturday was a chance for me to meet previous Principals at Scots and celebrate all that has been achieved throughout their time at the School. It was humbling to talk with them and witness the respect they command among our alumni community. The event brought our alumni community, our current parents and past and present staff together to celebrate a special milestone.
And finally, I wish you a very happy and safe holiday. Please take the chance to have a break, recharge and come back fresh and ready for a term full of more wonderful School activities.
