Welcome to the Scotsonian e-newsletter
To all in our wonderful alumni community, welcome to the first edition of The Scotsonian - our alumni e-newsletter.
The Scotsonian is a name synonymous with information about the school and its history, so we have continued this great tradition but added a contemporary twist by providing it solely online.
The Scotsonian will be sent via email to all alumni and we ask that you pass it on to other alumni if you know they haven't received it. Chances are that means we don't have their email address, so also encourage them to update their details on our website: Update your details here . Through this organic networking tree, we hope to restore our database to its former glory because we know we have lost touch with you in recent times.
Our alumni community is a valuable part of our history; the very fabric that makes Scots unique in our area. And we want to celebrate you - and with you - as we continue to grow our fine school.
Scots is on track to start 2022 with around 600 students. We have endured two very COVID-19-interrupted years but instead of faltering, we have shown remarkable resilience and flourished as a result.
Scots won the 2021 Australian Education Awards Best Co-curricular Program this month, we were named the No.1 academic school on the Border by Better Education earlier in the year and took out the 2019 Snowsports awards.
Our students have thrived amid the pandemic-hit school year. We transitioned to Scots@Home seamlessly and maintained excellent connections between our teachers and students despite the virtual environment. We were always pleased to return to the School campus, though. After each lockdown, it was one of the most rewarding sights to see students greet each other in the school grounds and witness a genuine happiness to be among their friends again.
Sadly, we had to postpone our alumni reunion weekend we had planned for November, but we trust there will be strong interest to get those back up and running in 2022. Contact Rowena Newcomen at email@example.com for assistance with venue bookings, online payments and intra-class communication.
We welcome alumni back to school for a number of functions throughout the year and will extend invites through this newsletter as time goes by. The first occasion will be the Scots Country Fair celebrating 50 years of Scots in the Albury community on 19 March. Put the date in your diary. We'd love to see you there.
Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas and a happy and healthy New Year.
