Welcome to 2022 at Scots
I’m looking forward to welcoming new and returning students back on campus from as early as Friday.
I have loved my time off over the holiday period but there is nothing as uplifting as seeing students return to school after a long break, refreshed and eager to catch up with their friends and begin the year.
I hope everyone has had an opportunity to rest and recharge, enjoyed some time with loved ones and perhaps even taken the opportunity to travel interstate.
Yvonne and I had a relaxing family Christmas with our three adult daughters and we spent some time on the beach in Victoria. There wasn’t much surf, so I couldn’t get in any surfing, but I bought a paddle board and taught myself a new skill. So I am refreshed and ready to go!
I had hoped COVID-19 restrictions and regulations would be a thing of the past, but so far the start to 2022 has proven that COVID-19 is going to be with us for a while yet.
Rest assured that we are working hard to keep our students, staff and community safe. I am constantly in touch with a collaboration of Principals from across the State, we take advice from NSW Health and comply with Public Health Orders. We also have the resources of the Association of Independent Schools of NSW to guide us safely through every step of this pandemic.
