The Old Scotch Collegians’ Association welcomes Dr Scott Marsh to his first OSCA Annual Dinner as School Principal. In keeping with the traditional Principal’s Address, Dr Marsh will provide a school update and he is looking forward to the occasion.
Dr Marsh is a current Scotch parent; his son Denzel is in year 10.
The OSCA Annual Dinner has been a long-standing, significant event on the OSCA calendar and part of our history since 1914.
The first Annual Dinner for the Old Scotch Collegians Association was held at the Grand Hotel, Melbourne. Despite the dinner not being held during the war years and also in 1921 and 1929, since 1930 Old Scotch Collegians have enjoyed celebrating their school’s tradition every year at this well-attended event until more recently, in 2020 and 2021, when the event was cancelled due to the COVID lockdowns.
The OSCA Annual Dinner has been hosted at various venues around Melbourne including the Melbourne Town Hall, Caulfield Racecourse, Melbourne University Union Hall, the Royal Exhibition Buildings and Melbourne Park, to name a few.
OSCA has welcomed notable guest speakers throughout the years from our alumni community as well as men and women from the wider community, sharing their insights in areas of politics, business, service, entertainment and sport.
