Australia – The Education Destination 39 the scots college, neW south WAles According to the Principal of The Scots College in Sydney, Dr Ian PM Lambert (BA, MA, PhD, MACE), every day in a boy’s life should be part of an exciting adventure. ‘International travel is one of the great adventures which expands a boy’s world,’ says Dr Lambert. ‘Combined with our innovative education programs and facilities, and culture of pastoral care, Scots boys are encouraged to fully realise their inner strengths and resources, developing skills with which they can flourish in life.’ International students are a valued part of the The Scots College community and they enjoy College life with their boarding house ‘family’. Every student belongs to a House and is cared for by housemasters, matrons and tutors. Chanuth Tansomboon was the first international student at The Scots College to be appointed as Senior Boarding Prefect in 2009. He says: ‘The best thing I’ve found about being at Scots is how everyone encourages and supports you, to be embraced by all around you and shown what you are capable of ... to get to know who you are. The independence of it all makes you dive right in.’ Above: Chanuth Tansomboon was the first international student at The Scots College to be appointed as Senior Boarding Prefect. ‘International travel is one of the great adventures which expands a boy’s world.’ Dr Lambert, Principal Scots boys grow into fine men At Scots we honour the adventures and learning of boys. “Our challenge is to ensure the Scots e xperience fosters leadership, character and spirit to define the Brave Hearts and Bold Minds of every Scots boy.” Principal, Dr Ian PM Lambert As a Scots boy, your son will belong to a House, cared for by a Housemaster, Assistant Housemaster, Matron and Tutors, in secure boarding facilities.
