From the Headmaster

What a fantastic weekend we have just enjoyed! The weather was perfect for the Open Day on the Scots Campus and the commitment of students, staff and parents was exceptional. The school looked at its absolute best after the recent rain too. The events of the weekend speak strongly of community, a great diversity of school opportunities and the excellent support we all enjoy from a strong and committed parent body and willing and enthusiastic staff and students.

The Senior School Information Night on Friday night provided an opportunity for Senior Staff to present their vision to the College community. Ms Leaf (Director of Senior School), Mr Jones (Head of Academic Excellence and Compliance), Mr Adams (Director of Co-curricular) and Mr Weeks (Educational Consultant) presented a very clear plan with many exciting initiatives. I wish to thank them for their excellent presentations.

The Open Day from 11am-2pm on Saturday provided the opportunity for us to show off what will be the Senior School Campus to the wider community whilst also allowing All Saints’ Parents to have a closer look. I wish to thank the staff and students who set up displays, opened up their classrooms, conducted tours and answered questions. I wish to also acknowledge the Year 11 Tour Guides who did a fabulous job. Thank you also to the Boarders P & F who ran the BBQ so well.

The ISA organised a Girls’ Gala Touch Football Carnival with over 250 girls from ISA Schools. Scots All Saints College has just joined the ISA Competition for Girls’ Touch Football this season and this was a wonderful way to be welcomed into the competition. The organisers and other schools were so impressed with our facilities they hope to make this a regular start to the season.

The Parent Weekend Chapel Service was a very special occasion too for the School Prefects and House Captains who were inducted in the presence of their peers, staff and family supporters on Sunday. I believe we have a body of leaders who will excel in their roles as they lead the Senior School over the next 12 months. I am really grateful for the support of all parents and students who made the effort to attend. These occasions are extremely important educational and community opportunities for our students which should not be missed.

Prefects are now welcome to apply for the Senior leadership roles of School Captain male and female, School Vice-Captain male and female, Day House Prefect male and female and Prefect Coordinator. This will occur over the next few weeks and announcements will be made at the end of the year.

Two very significant events take place at All Saints’ College and The Scots School next weekend. The Year 12 Valedictory Ball will be a wonderful event for the All Saints’ students, staff and families and I wish them all the best for the Ball and for their future.

For The Scots School community, the same night is the occasion of the last Blue, Black & Gold Ball. This is a wonderful whole school community event. The 2018 Year 12 will be officially welcomed into the Old Boys’ & Girls’ Association at the beginning of the night and I wish the Scots Year 12s all the best for their future too.
