Successful Royal Easter Show

Monday, March 30, 2015 30 Mar
The Cattle Team enjoyed tremendous success at the Sydney Royal Easter
Show once again last week. I always enjoy spending the most important judging
day with the students to observe them in action and celebrate their success with
them. This year’s results for our Cattle Team were outstanding again and a
testament to the outstanding work of Mrs Libby Dawes and the support of senior
students, parents and the CSU Kentucky practical students. A full report will
appear in the first Highlander next term as they have only just returned and
carcass results are not determined until Easter Saturday. David Gates, Headmaster

Highland Gathering a Huge Success

Tuesday, March 24, 2015 24 Mar
There were many highlights at this years’ Highland Gathering. Once again The Castle was a perfect backdrop for
the Pipes and Drums with a big crowd in attendance to enjoy the competition. I wish to thank the team of dedicated
parents, students and Old Boys who erected and dismantled the Castle. Our own Pipes and Drums under the
leadership of Gil McKenzie represented the school admirably and were very proud of their achievement in requiring
a double count back to separate them from the NSW Police Pipe Band in their grade. Other highlights included the
mass bands performing together at the closing presentation, the role of our cadets in the Flag Raising Ceremony,
the inclusion of a tent for the Old Boys and Girls Association under the leadership of President Mr Ian Quant and
the graphics display of the new Scots Pavilion.
It was an honour for me to be able to share the day with Mr John MacKenzie, the Chieftain for the 2015 Highland
Gathering. John enjoyed the day very much and it was a well-deserved honour after many years of wonderful
commitment to our School.
It was a great weekend. Thank you everyone for the part you played.
