Recently, we held our ‘New Girls – Old Girls’ Night in Girls’ Boarding. It was a fantastic evening that saw each of our year levels come together and perform a routine for our boarding house. We had everything from the Spice Girls to choreographed dances and a visit from our College mascot.
The girls spent hours rehearsing, choreographing their dances and learning their routines, as well as putting together costumes and music. Our Year 12 group did a wonderful job of supporting the younger girls to come together as a grade and organise their performance.
A highlight of the night was the passing down of a song from the Year 12s to the Year 7s. The year 12 group sang the song that was passed down to them when they were in Year 7 and then shared a new song with our current Year 7s for them to pass on when they reach their final year of boarding.
We ended the night with a ‘Cold Rock’ style dessert and a dance party. It was a night full of encouragement and support for one another with some hilarious performances and was a great way of strengthening our boarding community and connecting our new and old girls.
Our SCOTS PGC boarders completely embraced our ‘Pink Day’ last week. The event was a wonderful success and raised awareness and funds for the McGrath Foundation, which supports women and families affected by cancer by training specialist breast care nurses. It was great to see so many girl and boy boarders get dressed up in their best pink outfits and also contribute to the funds raised.
Thanks to all those families in the SCOTS PGC community who were able to support this activity by hosting a boarder. Over sixty per cent of our boarders enjoyed a great weekend with friends and family, no doubt starting and consolidating some friendships for times ahead. We look forward to the next ‘Adopt a Boarder’ weekend in the middle of Term 2.
