Packed house on hand as Indigenous Scholarship Fund launched
The Boykett Room in the Cardinal Pavilion was packed to the rafters on 17 May, as Scotch Family members gathered to enjoy an evening of fellowship and fun at the Scotch College Foundation President’s Dinner.
At the dinner, School Principal Tom Batty launched the fundraising appeal for the Scotch College Indigenous Scholarship Fund.
Old Boy Tony Briggs (’85) was interviewed about his time at Scotch, and the impact that his experiences at school had on him as he pursued a career in acting, directing and producing. Tony is perhaps best known for writing and directing the popular Australian film The Sapphires.
Tony has kindly accepted our invitation to be Patron of the fundraising appeal, which aims to raise $7.5 million to perpetually endow the Indigenous Scholarship Program.
