Student Achievement

Congratulations to Abbey Berlese (Year 9) who won the silver medal in the u16 heptathlon Australian Championships last weekend. Abbey has trained all summer for this showing great courage and collaboration with her coaches. Heptathlon involves seven events – 100 metres hurdles, high jump, shot-put, 200 metres, long jump, javelin, and 800 metres. This is a fantastic achievement and one that Abbey has trained hard for. Well done Abbey!

First XI Cricket

Scotch Oakburn played against Launceston Grammar School last weekend at Scotch Oakburn Park and came away with a win; winning by 8 runs.

The boys had a great off field week leading up to this game, with two very solid training sessions and a gym session designed by Mr Tim Reese.

Oli Hadley, 43 runs and Lachlan Goldschmied , 25 runs were our top scores. Our lower order all made solid contributions to assist in posting a valuable 148.

Bowlers James Marshall, Charlie Skipper, Riley Donlon, Hamish Knowles and Roy Penn all contributed to restricting Grammar to 140 runs.

Well done boys on a great team effort. You worked hard on new plans as a team to sharpen your game and tactics, which paid off.
