This week we farewelled our successful sporting Year 12 cohort. I would like to thank them for their years of service in sport at the College and wish them all the best for the future.

Please note this weekend is a long weekend, so SATIS cricket rosters don’t have matches scheduled for 30 October. I would also like to make a note that if you are ill and can’t attend training for your summer sport, could you please email your coach and relevant sport PIC so they can keep track of your attendance. Please make sure you check the relevant Dash sport page for training times and other information. Thank you.

Student Achievements


Congratulations to Oliver Hadley (Year 12) for winning the Tasmanian Pardey Shield for 2021. This is the holy grail of individual school tennis trophies.

Great work Oliver and we appreciate you working with our junior tennis players prior to the SATIS season starting next year.


Last weekend  Scotch Oakburn College was represented by twelve students at the 2021 Tasmanian All Schools Track and Field State Championships at the St Leonard’s Athletics Centre.  The students achieved some excellent results for the school despite very challenging weather conditions over the weekend.  Selection for the Athletics Tasmania State Team is based on performances from this event, however, national Championships scheduled for December have been cancelled.  Instead, Athletics Tasmania will announce a virtual state team for successful athletes in the U14, U16 & U18 age groups shortly.
