About Dr Bruce Carter

The Scotch Oakburn College Foundation Ltd chose to name their bequest program The Bruce Carter Society after the first Principal of our amalgamated College.

Dr Carter AM, B.A. (Sydney) Ed.M. (Harvard), Ed.D. (Toronto) F.A.C.E. came to Scotch College (Launceston) from his old school Knox Grammar School (Sydney) at the beginning of 1978, with his wife and son; a second son was born in 1980.

Dr Carter soon became a key player during the amalgamation of Scotch College and Oakburn College in 1979, and for the first five years of its history the coeducational Scotch Oakburn College was under Dr Carter’s skillful guidance and leadership.

Dr Carter is retired today; however, he has been one of Australia’s distinguished educators and school leaders. In 2002 he was appointed as a Member of the Order of Australia (AM) “for service to education as a Principal, Administrator and Educator…”

Dr Carter’s feelings for Scotch Oakburn College and his respect for the history and traditions of MLC, Scotch College, Oakburn College and Scotch Oakburn College, are irrefutable.

Membership to the Bruce Carter Society

Membership to The Bruce Carter Society is available to anyone who leaves a gift to Scotch Oakburn College in their Will. There is no requirement to declare the details of your gift.

There is no gift too large or too small. Your contribution will be gratefully received and valued. Being a member of The Bruce Carter Society allows the College to recognise your contribution and to thank you.

The law protects your rights to cancel your gift at any time should you wish to do so or circumstances change. If you already have a Will, all you need do to update your Will is to write a codicil – a legally binding instruction that effectively changes your Will without having to redraft a new one. This codicil is then attached to your Will.

We recommend you discuss your wishes with your family and consult with your solicitor before finalising arrangements to ensure your personal wishes are met.

Next Steps

There are a number of ways you can remember Scotch Oakburn College in your Will.

Listed below are four ways that you can make provision for the College. We ask that you consider these options and discuss them with your family and solicitor. You may also wish to consider and discuss with the College how you would like your gift to be used.

[av_iconlist_item title=’A specified sum’ link=” linktarget=” linkelement=” icon=’ue829′ font=’entypo-fontello’]
The simplest form of bequest is to allocate a specific sum. This, however, does not allow for any changes to the value of your estate and thus you may wish to  regularly review your Will.
[/av_iconlist_item]
[av_iconlist_item title=’A percentage’ link=” linktarget=” linkelement=” icon=’ue829′ font=’entypo-fontello’]
You may choose to leave a percentage of the value of your estate, should you so desire.
[/av_iconlist_item]
[av_iconlist_item title=’The balance’ link=” linktarget=” linkelement=” icon=’ue829′ font=’entypo-fontello’]
After providing for your family or friends, you may choose to leave the remaining balance of your estate to Scotch Oakburn College for a purpose of your choice.
[/av_iconlist_item]
[av_iconlist_item title=’Special gifts’ link=” linktarget=” linkelement=” icon=’ue829′ font=’entypo-fontello’]
Your gift can be anything of value and may not be money. Property, shares, or other assets of value can all make a positive difference.
