" SCOTS PGC College teachers were very supportive of me during my netball training sessions. The teachers helped me to manage my time and organise myself so that I did not fall behind in my studies. " Laura Geitz, 2001–2005
" There is no greater feeling than being amongst the pre-game chants of the SCOTS 1st XV rugby… SCOTS instilled in me the values and ethos required to serve as an officer in the Australian Defence Force. To me, SCOTS was always unrivalled in opportunities – one day, you would be competing on the sporting field in Brisbane, the next day you would be touring rural communities for band performances and the next day you would be back in the classroom. SCOTS reminds me that, above all, ordinary people can achieve extraordinary feats if we allow them. SCOTS taught me about the balance required to enjoy life. " Nicholas Barber, 1999–2007
" I can remember after my first few weeks in Year 8 boarding at SCOTS thinking “Five years of this is not going to be enough.” Before SCOTS I lived on a cattle property with no brothers to play with, spent two hours on a bus every day, and could rarely stay for after school activities. At SCOTS I had a hundred brothers, and straight after school I could have two hours of cricket, tennis, football, swimming, running, cadets, jamming on electric guitars, or just being with my mates who were to become the closest friends I would ever have. I never wanted it to end, and 35 years later SCOTS still feels like home. " Richard Bonner, 1975–1979
" My time at PGC was a very special time – lots of fun times, a significant period in “growing up” and beginning to learn the joy of serious attention to academic studies. The teachers were great and the friendships with fellow students much valued – some friendships remaining lifelong. " Jean E Calder, 1950–1951
" In my time at SCOTS I learned the value in being part of a team – an important lesson in business and in life. " David Crombie, 1951–1956
