ED ROLL CALL
CONTEMPORARY schools are no
longer simply places of academic learning,
they also play an integral role in their
communities as employers and dynamic
The Scots School Albury, which will
celebrate its 150th anniversary in 2016,
plays a key role in the Albury-Wodonga
community as both a school and an
employer of choice.
Scots currently has a staff of 159, making
it one of Albury's leading employers. This
includes 106 academic and 53 support
staff, all dedicated to providing the best
education and facilities in the region.
The Scots School Albury is a Uniting
Church, independent, non-selective, co-
educational day and boarding school for
pre-school through to year 12, with two
boarding houses accommodating students
from years 7 to 12.
It enjoys a reputation for academic
excellence, with students consistently
ranked among the top 10 per cent in NSW.
As a vibrant business, Scots' objective
to forge links with the wider community
is consistent with its charter to enable
community access to its facilities.
In December 2010 the school celebrated
the opening of its new Indoor Sports
Centre; its construction made possible by a
$2m grant from the Federal Government's
'Building the Education Revolution'
The facilities include twofull-sizebasketball
and netball courts; a competition-size
basketball and netball show court with
retractable grandstand seating; fitness
laboratory; personal development, health
and physical education classroom; meeting
room; multiple change-rooms; and referee
and first aid rooms.
The centre has created opportunities to
develop partnerships with community
groups including Greater Western Sydney
Giants and Margaret Court Tennis
Academy. North Albury Netball Club and
Albury Tigers Football Club are just some
of the groups regularly using the facility.
In 2011 the new centre hosted Carevan
Foundation's annual Gala Dinner, while the
school also accommodated such community
events as the Sydney Symphony Orchestra
Twilight Concert, Justice Crew and Stan
Walker concerts and the Asia Pacific
Country Cricket Championships.
The Scots School Albury will host a
'Business After Hours' event on June 13
for Albury North and Wodonga Chamber
of Commerce members, which will include
a tour of the centre.
The facilities are available for hire for
conferences, concerts, camps, clinics,
seminars and workshops and video-
conferencing facilities are also available. A
residential option is offered and includes
full catering facilities.
The school has an extensive range of
specialist facilities including an 800-seat
chapel hall; cultural centre; theatre; board
room; function room; two ovals; outdoor
swimming pool and eight tennis courts.
Scots offers daily school tours and will
host two Open Days - on Friday, May 11
and Friday, October 26.
