From our Boarding Houses

We have officially passed the halfway mark of Term 3!

As the term quickly passes by, our boarder’s calendars quickly fill with a variety of sporting events, exams, assessments and the general daily busyness of life at SCOTS PGC.  It was wonderful to be able to take some downtime last weekend with a fun day of golf and shopping in Toowoomba.  After a hearty breakfast for all (Thanks to John and the catering staff), almost 70 girls and boys combined to take on the City Golf driving range and mini-golf challenges. Many students took pleasure in sending the golf ball well into the distance, while others loved the skill required to get a ‘hole in one’ on the mini-golf course. Regardless, a great morning was had by all. The girls and boys then ventured to Grand Central shopping centre for lunch and some retail therapy before returning to boarding for a well-deserved pizza dinner. Thanks to all staff involved on the day and well done to all our boarders who took part; they were excellent ambassadors for the College in all respects, particularly in their respectful behaviour and willingness to take part.

Check out some great photos from our Golf Day.

There are more activities planned for the coming weeks, in particular, Jersey Day on Monday 30 August, the Rugby 7’s Carnival, for various girls and boys teams, hosted by SCOTS, on Saturday 4 September and the Father’s Day Morning Tea on Sunday 5 September (Week 8). We look forward to seeing as many parents on that weekend as possible.
