Boys' Achievements

Upson Award for Music

A music performance award is made each year to a Year 12 musician who displays outstanding performance skills. The candidates who applied for this award were required to perform two contrasting pieces of a high standard to two adjudicators that included the Head of Music, Mr Coughlan, and guest Musician and educator Mr Bell. The performances were presented during the 2014 Senior Music Recital, a concert that was enjoyed by many parents, family and friends. The standard was very high, as expected, and all who participated should be congratulated.

After much deliberation by the adjudicators it was decided to award the Upson Award for 2014 to Nicolas Olivares (Year 12, St Andrews).

Mathematics Challenge for Young Australians

Our highest achieving Year 8, 9 and 10 Mathematics students were invited to participate in the Challenge Stage of the Mathematics Challenge for Young Australians run by the Australian Mathematics Trust. Boys were invited to complete six incredibly challenging questions over a three week period, pitting their wits against the best young Mathematics students from around Australia. Congratulations to all 22 students from Scotch College who completed the competition. This year we achieved some outstanding results with four students awarded a High Distinction, ranking them amongst the strongest students in Australia.

Congratulations to Prentice Shepherd (Year 8, Ross), Luke Henderson (Year 9, Ferguson), Kartik Khanna (Year 9, Shearer), Raghav Khanna (Year 9, Shearer) for their outstanding achievement.
