Where country values inspire excellence
At SCOTS PGC College, we take the education of rural boys and girls seriously. With rural boarders making up approximately half of our senior school, the College has a distinctly rural feel and the culture of the student body is strongly influenced by attitudes and values that typify those who have been raised in the bush – resilience, courage, good humour, humility, honesty and egalitarianism. Far from being a monoculture though, we also appreciate the diversity of life experience that other students from Brisbane and the Gold and Sunshine Coasts, as well as international students and day students from the Warwick district, bring to the College community.
We pride ourselves on being a school that assists all students to fulfil their potential, whether that be in an academic or vocational pathway. The College staff is committed to providing our diverse range of students with educational experiences that are matched to their individual interests, abilities and aspirations. All students receive a broad, general education, as well as having the opportunity to select from a range of elective subjects in Years 9-10. Then, in Years 11-12 students elect to pursue depth studies in either our academic or vocational streams. This personalised approach, combined with excellent co-curricular and pastoral care programmes, and under-girded by the College’s spiritual values, means that each child has the opportunity to experience success as they develop to become “men and women of character - morally sound, healthy, positive participants in their own families and workplaces, as well as in their local and global communities”.
A strong Agricultural Science department, as well as excellence programmes in Equestrian, Pipes & Drums and Touch Football are the main curricular and co-curricular distinctive of the College.
Interested students have the opportunity to show stud cattle (as well as led steers) and sheep from the College’s own Angus and Texel studs. A highlight of 2014 promises to be the construction of the SCOTS PGC Rural Trade Training Centre, following the recent announcement of funding of $556, 000 by federal member for Maranoa, Bruce Scott -“The rural trade training centre will include the construction of a theory room, workshop, office, amenities, a small teaching vineyard, upgrade existing plant nursery, upgrade existing sheep and cattle handling facilities and also the provision of equipment. This centre will facilitate a high-standard of education to deliver qualifications in agriculture to address skills shortages and will be a true asset to the Southern Downs.”
SCOTS PGC College has been recognised as having the most comprehensive school-based equestrian programme in Queensland for several years now, with successive titles as Champion School at the Queensland Inter-School Equestrian Association state titles, in addition to producing a series of individual state and national champions in a range of equestrian disciplines. An addition to the College’s equestrian programme in 2014 will be the introduction of campdrafting, with a coaching clinic scheduled for 29-30 March at the Allora Showgrounds, to be run in conjunction with the Australian Campdrafting Association. A second clinic will be held in term 3, with campdrafting to become a regular component of the College equestrian programme in 2015.
