Over a six week period in Term 2, over 75 students from Early Learning to Year 12 participated in the Schools Cross Country series run by Newstead Athletics. Each Saturday we would meet at various locations to run, play and have fun with others. A very encouraging, community-oriented and fun environment for all who are wanting to get outside and keep active!

This year Scotch Oakburn College won the Junior division (Early Learning to Year 6) with 855 points and came second in the Senior division (Year 7-12) with 467 points. These combined achievements are a great reflection on all who took part, both for their athletic abilities as well as their encouragement and support to one another. All 75+ participants should be congratulated! We would also like to highlight some exciting individual results.
