From The President

Doug Lording

I hope all in the Scotch Family have made a good start to the year. OSCA is certainly up and running, with a big year already well under way. Communication and participation remain the main themes, and we continue to strive to broaden our reach into the Old Boy and Scotch Family community.

As well as our established activities, key initiatives in 2017 include the recent Scotch Family Chinese New Year Dinner, a young Old Boys’ forum, exploring the needs of non-Old Boy parents, laying the foundation for a performing arts club, hosting with Old Melburnians a 150 year Head of River anniversary row past and dinner, consolidating our New York Branch with a visit from the Principal, starting a Hong Kong Branch, and broadening our young Old boy mentors’ and coaches’ awards night. It’s exhausting just thinking of all that!

It’s a small team in the OSCA office, led by Scott Montgomery (’85), with Deb Burley and Bec Marshall, and although they do a sterling job we are always looking for and needing extra help.

We are holding three separate forums to discuss Young Alumni (3 May), Past Parents (8 May) and Performing Arts (9 May). If you would like to participate please notify the OSCA office. Some of you will have been directly invited, but others are welcome to join in the discussion.

In addition we would like to co-opt members to our Clubs, Events, Communications and Alumni Engagement committees. This is a great way to get a feel for OSCA. Again, let us know if you’re interested.

School facilities: Many of our clubs have access to the schools magnificent grounds and buildings. Old Boys must be a member of a club that has specific times booked outside school hours to use these facilities.  It’s a great reason to get involved and see your old school again.

Finally, another important way to help is to let us know your thoughts on what we do. If you have any good ideas, don’t hesitate to get in touch.

OSMaD

osmad_logoOSMaD is arguably the most successful community theatre company to emerge in Melbourne in the last 10 years.   Audiences now recognise that an OSMaD show guarantees a consistently high standard of theatre performance and production. In this sense OSMaD is a non-professional company producing professional standard theatre.  This is theatre produced by people of all ages who are not only extremely talented but who love what they do – and the outcome of that passion always shows. Our cast and crew is always drawn widely from the amateur theatre community. The catalogue of occupations of those who spend their spare time passionately rehearsing for life on stage is as diverse as the community we draw from.

In the world of websites which support Community theatre the OSMaD website now clearly requires more regular pro-active attention to content and style

The OSMaD website is mainly acting as a link to our ticket booking agency but has also in the past acted as an audition booking portal allowing eager auditionees to register, send details and book a time slot for audition.  However, what the site lacks is a decent display or catalogue of past shows, of awards and particularly some of the brilliant pics we have from those past shows.

So, we are looking for someone in the OSCA world with sufficient interest knowledge and skill to keep our website up to date, informative and exciting.

If you are interested or require further details please contact Richard Beveridge rbevo@bigpond.net.au or the OSCA office.
