Thank you for a superb 70th Anniversary Weekend from Headmaster

Wednesday, March 16, 2016 16 Mar
Headmaster  Mr David Gates expressed his thanks to The Scots School community in this week’s Highlander.  For a full report, please visit our Highlander newsletter  on this website.
 I am  very grateful to all the parents and students who attended the opening of the Tim Richards Pavilion on Saturday afternoon. This was truly a wonderful occasion where the vision of the past P & F Executive was realised. The contribution of so many parents, staff and students through donations and fundraising efforts showed our community in action.

The 70th Anniversary Formal Garden Party at Karralee was a great event which was enjoyed by current parents and staff of the School and Old Boys and Girls spanning the 70 years of the School’s history. Thank you also to all parents, past parents, staff and Old Boys and Girls who attended and made this a very special occasion.

Sunday was a wonderful day for the Highland Gathering with a wonderful fair atmosphere with stalls, games, rides and lots of food. There were Thirteen Pipes
Bands organised by Mr Robert Boshier and the Friends of Pipes and Drums, Dance Troupes and Highland Dancers coordinated by Mrs Gillian Gates and
games for the children organised by Mr Adams with his PASS Class. I am very grateful for the enormous commitment of the Highland Gathering Committee
lead by Mr Lindsay Wilde (President of the Parents and Friends), the Friends of Pipes and Drums and the tremendous support of parents, grandparents, students
and staff to enable the weekend to be the fabulous event it was. I wish to thank everyone involved who organised stalls and activities, put up tents and did a great deal more besides, often behind the scenes, to ensure the success of such a large undertaking.

There were many highlights at this year’s Highland Gathering. 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 as usual. Other highlights included the mass bands performing together at the closing presentation, the role of our cadets in the Flag Raising Ceremony and the tremendous increase in participation of students in Highland Dancing at The Scots School.

It was a great weekend. Thank you everyone for the part you played.
