BRUCE CARTER SOCIETY

Leaving a gift in your Will to Scotch Oakburn College is a way to ensure the values you place on education will carry on for future generations.

The spirit of support and philanthropy has long been part of the Scotch Oakburn College community. You can assist by being part of our culture of philanthropy, helping “create the future” for the College and the success of our students.

Dr Bruce Carter AM was the first Principal of Scotch Oakburn College and was instrumental in the amalgamation of Scotch College and Oakburn College in 1979.

The College Foundation launched the Bruce Carter Society in his name, to honour and recognise those who have remembered the College in their Will, within their lifetime.

As a community that began as two, united in 1979 and grown stronger ever since, our longevity is an indication of the support willingly given by those who have the capacity to others in their time of need. True philanthropy is selfless, without any burden of reciprocity on the receiver or expectation by the provider.

That is what communities do, it is what creates true friendships, strong relationships and meaningful partnerships.

YOUR GIFT WILL MAKE A DIFFERENCE

MORE THAN AN EDUCATION

Our students learning takes them on a journey and allows them to think creatively, solve problems collaboratively, articulate ideas with courage and live with passion.

YOUR GIFT WILL MAKE A DIFFERENCE

THE COURAGE TO DISCOVER

There are no limits to what our students can achieve. We give them the courage to discover themselves. As a Round Square school (part of 220 innovative schools globally), we promote the development of character as equally important to achieving academically.

YOUR GIFT WILL MAKE A DIFFERENCE

PROVIDING OPPORTUNITIES

Experiential learning opportunities for students are considered a fundamental part of educating the whole person to be the best they can be.

YOUR GIFT WILL MAKE A DIFFERENCE

DEVELOPING LEADERS

We help our students develop into courageous and compassionate young leaders; to use their voice and step out of their comfort zone.

Dr Bruce Carter AM

Dr Bruce Carter AM was the first Principal of our amalgamated College. He was instrumental in the amalgamation of Scotch College and Oakburn College in 1979, and his leadership and guidance during our first five years was deeply valued. The Bruce Carter Society plays an important role for the entire College community and the history of giving is remarkable.

From the first gift in 1898 from Messrs Birchall supporting “drawing” at Methodist Ladies’ College; to Norah Dorey who donated land which later supported the “wetlands”; to the gift from Dr John Morris AO MBE which contributed to the John Morris Library, an epicentre for learning and creativity.

From a single school of 45 students at Methodist Ladies’ College in 1886 to over 1,000 students learning across three vibrant campuses today, the Scotch Oakburn College journey is rich with history and experiences that connect our community through the decades.
