Dare: The Centenary Campaign
A bold vision to enhance our students’ educational experience for a dynamic future
Five years ago we set out to achieve a bold vision; a vision to raise $10 million to establish a new Wellbeing and Sports Centre and strengthen the College’s scholarship offering.
This vision is now a reality and testament to the dedication, conviction, and support of the entire Scotch College community.
The Purruna Spencer Newton Wellbeing and Sports Centre has replaced the old with the bold. New scholarship opportunities have enabled students from a diverse range of backgrounds to thrive. Through sacrificial giving and broad community participation our $10 million goal has been surpassed.
The success of Dare: The Centenary Campaign has been made possible through the collective gifts of students, staff, parents (both past and present), grandparents, Old Collegians and the wider community. It is estimated that 20% of the Scotch College community has supported this important endeavour – a participation rate that we are incredibly proud of and celebrate.
Thank you to everyone who pledged their support to this campaign. From our Re-Founders who gave so generously to this once in a lifetime opportunity, to those who secured a piece of Scotch history through the dedication of seats and pavers, to the 600 plus members of our community who raised in excess of $700,000 during the College’s inaugural Giving Day last year.
Your contributions have created a lasting legacy that will live on in the hearts and minds of the Scotch College community for many years to come and enhance the wellbeing of students and the wider community.
The success of the campaign would also not be possible without the vision of the College Council, College leadership and supported by an army of volunteers who gave so generously of their time and expertise.
The stories of Purruna Spencer Newton Centre and new scholarship opportunities are yet to be told. Each story will add to the rich tapestry of the College and we look forward to sharing these with you.
