Friends of Scotch Music (FOSM)

On behalf of the entire Music Faculty at Scotch, I wish to extend my sincere thanks and appreciation to the parents who have dutifully served on the Friends of Scotch Music committee for several years. To Mrs Ally Matthews (President), Mrs Marianna Winton (Secretary) and Mrs Maria Radici (Committee Member), the staff of Scotch Music thank you for what you've done to champion the cause of Music at Scotch. 

The time committed with meetings, planning and event logistics for some of the bigger calendar events such as Jazz Night and Spring Concert has been truly wonderful.   

Although your season of service has come to an end, the impact you've had will be lasting.
