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.

Carillon Business Awards

Wednesday, July 23, 2014 23 Jul

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.
