Leading co-educational boarding and day college within regional NSW, Scots All Saints College, Bathurst will visit a number of regional and rural towns this month, including Cowra, to connect with past, current and future families and support local 'buy from the bush' campaigns.

Director of Community Engagement and Marketing, Mrs Mel Monico said the college understands most of their families are on the land or working in small business and it can be challenging to leave properties to learn more about education opportunities for their children.

"There has been great interest and support for the development of Scots All Saints College in Bathurst following the integration last year of two very longstanding and respected boarding schools, The Scots School and All Saints' College, with a strong foundation combined history in education stemming back over 219 years," she said.

"After a successful first year, Scots All Saints College is emerging as a modern and progressive college catering to the needs of rural and regional families with affordable and quality education that is closer to home, we simply want to reach out to communities in our traditional heartland and help them learn more."

Mrs Monico said the college welcomed 130 new students in 2020.

"The school continues to grow with unrivaled space, opportunities in academic and co-curricular activities," she said.

"We are keen to listen to the needs of local families in education and introduce our leadership team including our new Director of Boarding, Mr Anthony Le Couteur.

"We are pleased he can join our team and share his thoughts about our programs developed for rural and regional families including Equestrian Centre, on campus horse agistment, affordable parent accommodation on campus and agriculture programs on the Scots Campus farm.

"There have been many improvements and new additions in 2019 including new Performing Arts Academy for a blended experience in Music, Drama, Dance and Media; renovated boarding houses; announcement of a $3 million state-of-the art Innovation Centre to be built on All Saints Campus and a priority focus on student wellbeing and resilience programs as part of pastoral care."

Local families in Cowra are invited to join the college for an informal evening of drinks and canapés on Friday, February 21 from 6pm till 8pm at the Cowra Japanese Garden Cafe.
