Junior School Athletics Carnival

Wednesday, August 13, 2014 13 Aug
And the Winning House is .... BROWNING
2ND IVES; 3RD LANG; 4TH FLYNN

Last Friday the Junior School held a very successful athletics carnival. It is always lovely to welcome Mrs Pringle and her students from the Lithgow campus as our students look forward to competing and socialising together. The weather was consistent with previous years-cold and windy but the sausages were hot and the enthusiasm was high. The new Scots tent was unveiled and looked spectacular. Mr Gates was genuinely impressed by the marching prowess of the house groups. They were judged on formation, timing, appearance, leadership and enthusiasm. Browning was declared winners of the marching ahead of Lang, Flynn and Ives. The Junior ball games were won by Lang and then it was over to the McKibbin Oval for the track and field events. We were really pleased to complete all events and teachers and parents all commended the children for the spirit in which they competed. Our student leaders did a marvellous job in preparing their teams for marching and ensuring that all house members participated in their relevant events. Thank you to all the parents who cooked cakes and slices, who manned the barbecue, served at the canteen, assisted as officials in the running of events and supported their children. We could not run a successful, carnival without them. Congratulations and thank you to Mrs Inglis and Mrs Weal for organising our carnival so thoroughly.

Highland Jazz Night

Wednesday, July 30, 2014 30 Jul

On Saturday night the Highland Jazz Night showcased outstanding music from our Musical Ensembles, Pipes and Drums and individual performances from a range of students. 

The quality of musicianship was incredible and the participation rate extremely high. The highlights for me were the excellence of Felicity Walker showcasing her HSC Extension Two pieces, the Barber Shop Quartet (Peter Deacon 12, Jonty Boshier 12, Sean Grabham 10 and Ben McGrath 10), the Voice Solos of Peter Deacon 12, Shilo McCurley 11, Anna McHugh 11, Sean Grabham 10, Ben McGrath 10 and Mia Wallace 7 and the outstanding performances of the Pipes and Drums and Music Ensembles. This really is one of the absolute highlights on the school calendar and this was particularly evident this year with a very big audience.

I especially wish to thank the Year 12 students for their contribution to Music during their time at The Scots School as was acknowledged on Saturday night. I also wish to thank Mrs Denise Garland, Mr Gil Mackenzie and Miss Alex Dunkley for all their work in developing Music and the performing arts at Scots. A great deal of thanks must also go to Mrs Liz Lennon and Mrs Lynda Ireland and the Friends of Pipes and Drums for all their preparation and setting up for the night.
