The Scots School has been nominated for two Bathurst Carillon Business Awards.
The School’s nomination for Excellence in Professional Services acknowledges the commitment by staff and in particular Deputy Head, Mrs Lynne Fleming, to provide an excellent transition to tertiary education for Senior Students. Mrs Fleming nurtures and consults with each student throughout the Higher School Certificate process to ensure their best options for subject choice and all aspects of entering tertiary education. In 2013, the School received outstanding Higher School Certificate results and 80% of Scots candidature achieved Early Entry into their chosen university course.
The School is also delighted to be nominated for Excellence in Rural Achievement. The outstanding work by the Agriculture Department, led by Mrs Libby Dawes, has resulted in the co-curricular Cattle Team winning many prizes in 2014, including a prestigious Gold Medal at the Sydney Show. Students are paired together to fully prepare their steer for showing at Blayney, Bathurst and Sydney Shows. Not only do students learn about best practice in agriculture, they also work as a team, develop resilience as they face challenges, take on responsibility, mentor younger students new to cattle, develop humility and have fun. These are our farmers for tomorrow.VOTE NOW! To vote, go to www.carillonbusinessawards by 5pm August 18. Please note, only one vote per IP address.
