Dear Community
 
It is with great excitement that I write to you regarding a new strategic partnership the College has developed. In 2018 and 2019 the College will be working closely with FORM. FORM is located walking distance from the College at The Goods Shed in Claremont.
 
For a long time, research has shown the importance that creativity plays in the development of a child’s mind and the value add it makes to their skill development as they move through school and enter the workforce. More and more employers are seeking not just content knowledge, rather they are seeking employees who can demonstrate the ability to think creatively and deliver out of the box solutions within their chosen field of expertise.
 
Our partnership with FORM highlights the value we place on the role of creativity in the education of our boys. I encourage you to read the attached materials and to watch the video here which explains our partnership. 
 
Additionally, we have an opportunity for our community to be actively engaged in our strategy. As part of the relationship we are the venue partner for the upcoming Scribblers Festival schools program between 9-11th of May. This program, created by FORM and the Town of Claremont, brings world class authors and illustrators onto the Scotch College campus for a series of discussions, activations and workshops with children from across the junior, middle and senior age range. There will also be a rare opportunity for the entire family to engage with leading creatives as part of the broader program which is centered around The Goods Shed on the 12th and 13th of May. To celebrate this unique event, Scribblers Festival would love for you to join them and special guest, Paul Collard, at their Program Launch Event on Thursday, the 1st of March, from 6-8pm at The Goods Shed. If you would like to attend, please let them know by emailing launch@scribblersfestival.com.au.
 
We are also pleased to announce a public forum, in which you can join us on 19th March here at the College to hear from Paul Collard the Chief Executive at the UK based center for Creativity, Culture & Education. Bookings can be made via this link. https://www.trybooking.com/UGQV
 
We trust that you are as excited as we are at the opportunity to truly engage with world leaders in such an important area.
