What we do
Our job is to make sure that parents’ contributions are used to benefit parents and students across the school.
The SCPA has three main objectives:
- Fun/friend-raising– to promote and organise social occasions for parents/caregivers, staff and students;
- Forum – to provide a forum for communication between the Headmaster and Principals and parents; and
- Fund-raising– to raise funds to support initiatives around the College campus that benefit all Scots College students in both Prep, Middle and Senior schools.
Fun & Friendship
The SCPA arrange social functions for parents to socialise with other parents and staff.
Check the calendar for what events are on this year.
The SCPA is a great way to get to know some other parents in the school. It’s a chance to have some fun and build friendships while supporting fund-raising efforts.
The SCPA aims to provide a meeting place for parents to share ideas and engage in open discussion with the school.
Attending monthly meetings is a good chance to connect with other parents informally. We manage a rotating agenda and look to invite school leaders including the Board and all Principals. It’s a great chance to get to find out about what different parts of the school are doing, but also to ask questions and make suggestions.
Current fund-raising initiatives
Each year, the SCPA sets out our annual fund-raising goals and initiatives. There are three key areas of focus for 2016.
- Our current fund-raising initiative is Operation Monkey Bars. The SCPA has committed to providing funding towards the upgrade of the years 1-8 playground including new artificial turf and play equipment. This has been recently completed as part of the Centenary celebrations.
- Each year, a sum of up to $5,000 is made available to the Headmaster to support an individual student representing Scots College / Wellington at a National or International level in their chosen sport, cultural pursuit or academic level. Find out more about the award
