Reunions and branch events are as strong as ever
It’s often a bit surreal working at my old school, where I spent nine years as a student in the late 1970s and early ‘80s. These days, trips to the tuckshop and walks around the magnificent Scotch grounds always bring back fond memories of my school days..Today, my role as Executive Director of the Old Scotch Collegians’ Association has me engaging in a wide variety of events at Scotch and elsewhere; for example, participating in Grandparents’ Day with the Year 7s, representing the Old Boys at the school’s Anzac Day Assembly, organising the Association’s flagship event, the.Annual Dinner, where Old Boys gather and kindred Scotch spirit is shared, and attending class reunions and branch events throughout Australia, and sometimes overseas.
I love being part of the fellowship of the Old Boy community, and indeed of the entire Scotch Family – Old Boys, current students, teachers, past and present Scotch parents, and other friends of Scotch..
Our reunions and branch events are as strong as ever, and they continue to play an important role in fostering this sense of fellowship and keeping the Scotch Spirit alive and thriving in Australia and overseas. I encourage Scotch Family members everywhere to attend local branch functions when they can. I can assure them of a very warm welcome, and that they will thoroughly enjoy their engagement with fellow members of the Scotch Family.
The photographs on these pages show two recent events at which I represented OSCA – Grandparents’ Day 2015 and the Class of 1985 30 Year Reunion.
