Each year, The Scots College celebrates its students’ achievements at the annual Senior School Speech Day awards ceremony. This day acknowledges boys who have excelled in their studies, served their community and showcased their fine Scots boy values and qualities.

Students are awarded various certificates, vouchers and traditional gifts for their outstanding dedication.

Through the generous support from past and current parents, Old Boys, their families, and the wider Scots community, the College continues to award its students with a number of unique prizes.

If you would like to contribute to a Speech Day award that acknowledges the outstanding achievement of Scots’ fine graduates, please follow the steps below.

The Scots College will work with the endowment family to select a trophy fitting of the award.
