The Scotch community has once again rallied to the call and risen to the challenge of endowing the General Sir John Monash Scholarship in perpetuity. The Scholarship will appropriately honour Scotch’s greatest Old Boy, a passionate believer in the power of education, and open our doors to boys exemplifying his intellect, character and ambition who would not otherwise be able to attend the School. In so doing, the Scholarship will be a lasting tribute to Monash and the qualities he upheld throughout his life.
Through the generosity of the Scotch Family, $1,319,000 has been committed to the cause. This surpasses our aim and puts us within touching distance of endowing two such scholarships in Monash’s name.
Thank you all – boys, staff, parents, Old Boys and friends of the School – for helping to make this possible.
I Tom Batty
