2022 Senior and Middle School House Athletics Carnival

Wednesday 6 April saw the 2022 House Athletics Carnival held at St Leonards in excellent conditions. After having our swimming carnival earlier in the term being split in age groups, it was great to have the whole Senior and Middle School together at the one venue, competing in their house groups.

This year we had several records in the program, and I congratulate all students that achieved a record. A special mention of the two father-daughter records;  Mr Cale O’Keefe and Scarlett O’Keefe (Year 11) for Javelin and Mr Charles Beaumont and Claudia Beaumont (Year 8) for Long Jump.

Other records broken included:

F U/17 200m Kate Atherton 27.57
M U/17 700g Javelin Ben Atkins 36.71
F U/17 100m Kate Atherton 13.63
F U/17 500g Javelin Scarlett O’Keefe 23.21
F U/14 Long Jump Claudia Beaumont 4.95

Obviously, a carnival of 334 events in just under 6.5hours, does not happen without our staff and volunteers that assist on the day. I would like to thank everyone who contributed to the success of the day.

We had a close carnival throughout the day with some excellent participation helping to maximise house points scores:


Lastly, congratulations to all students for their efforts. I hope you all enjoyed the day and it was great to see the house spirit shining as much as it ever has, well done!

The Scotch Oakburn College Senior Basketball program capped off a great season when it held its annual dinner and presentation evening last week. We featured in five semi finals and three grand finals in Term 1 and whilst we didn’t end up with a premiership shield this year, that certainly didn’t reflect the efforts and commitment that has been evident from all players and their coaches.

Best & Fairest, Runner Up Best & Fairest and Sportsmanship Awards were also presented at the dinner. For results, please click here.

We farewelled our Year 12 students who have given so much to Basketball during their time at Scotch Oakburn and we thank them for their excellent contributions.

We now look forward to the remainder of this year, namely the Basketball Tasmania TCE College Championships in September and the Year 7- 10 High School Tournaments in November, and of course the Northern High Schools Association Competition in Term 4 for all Year 7-10 students.

Thank you to all our players, coaches and parents for your continued support of the Basketball program.

Director of Basketball
