Learning Celebrations

Thank you to all families who were able to attend end of year celebration events with their children on the Elphin Campus this week. It has been a very exciting week for students as the end of the school year draws near. The support of parents and families right across the Junior School throughout 2022 has been greatly appreciated by all Staff as we work together to achieve the best for each and every student. Thank you!

To students and families leaving the College this year, we wish you every success in your new schools. To everybody continuing at Scotch Oakburn in 2023, we look forward to seeing you at the beginning of Term 1.

Best wishes to all members of our learning community for Christmas, the New Year and the summer holiday break.
