Boarders Activities

Week 1:

Australia Day was our first combined boarding activity for 2018.  A Scooby Doo Slip’n’Slide; swim in the upgraded Locke St Pool; cricket and footy on the oval, plus a BBQ lunch and snow cone machine, provided abundant fun and refreshment for all on this hot and steamy day .

The response to Saturday’s early morning Park Run along the Condamine River has been overwhelmingly positive, as well as our introduction to Yoga and Pilates class on Sunday (open to boys and girls).  Warwick Twin Cinema was packed to capacity on Sunday afternoon with boarders and town folk seeing, “The Greatest Showman” and “Maze Runner”.  Ladies behind me commented on how courteous and well-behaved the boarders were. Always heartening to hear!

Week 2:

This weekend we are journeying to Toowoomba’s Sunset Superbowl for an evening of Ten Pin Bowling and arcade games. Yoga will be offered again on Sunday morning.  Note:  After two complimentary sessions we will negotiate with our provider a reasonable rate for those wishing to continue with this healthy discipline.

Essence of My Heart Yoga and Pilates comes to SCOTS.

Future Activities:  Mrs Brown has met with the Year 12 Captains to discuss life at the College in 2018.  Max, Tish, Kate and Charlie have much to contribute to this term’s activity calendar.  Their ideas will be in place from week 5 – so until then, below is our proposed order of events.

Warm regards, Bronwyn Clark
