South West Queensland All Schools Touch Tournament

The Senior Mixed Touch Team played well at the SWQ All Schools Touch Tournament with just one substitute. The team secured two draws and a loss in the pool rounds. Unfortunately, fatigue took its toll with a loss in the quarter finals to Our Lady of the Southern Cross College. There was a lot to be happy about, with some excellent defence from all players.

Some enterprising attack from Tom Winter and Charlie Brennand kept the team in the competition on many occasions.
Maddie Mathies, Emily Rhodes and Kate Wild played every minute of every game and were stoic throughout with great defence.
Max Batterham and Lachlan Titus completed the team and all were a credit to themselves, their families and the wider SCOTS community. Thank you to Mr Bradbury and Ms Fowler who accompanied the team.

The carnival was held once again at UQ Sports Athletics Centre in marvellous conditions.

This carnival was also held under excellent conditions at Warwick SHS with a strong team of athletes representing the College.

Our junior athletes certainly led the way with a very strong performance from all selected.

The results were most impressive in the Age Championships where we collected 7 wins and 4 runners-up from the 12 age groups on offer. Congratulations to the following students on their performances in their Age Championship:

12yrs – Sam Wainwright 1st, Alyxis McDonald 2nd

13yrs – Lucy Bourke 2nd

Records at the All Schools don’t fall easily but Sam Wainwright made it look easy with 4 individual efforts and a relay record with his fellow 12yr olds. Sam set new marks in the Triple Jump, 100m, 200m and the 400m for the 12yrs boys. We congratulate Sam on these new marks in these emerging events at the Warwick All Schools.

The Girls were awarded the Champion school and SCOTS PGC was second in the aggregate overall results to Warwick High School.



The junior hockey team had a strong win last Thursday afternoon in the Warwick Interschools competition. The team has one week left in the regular round of fixtures. They are currently undefeated in this competition and are looking forward to a strong showing in the Final series.

The Senior hockey concluded their preliminary rounds last night and are awaiting their final position on the competition ladder.


Sevens Rugby

Training has commenced for the upcoming SCOTS Rugby Sevens Carnival (Saturday 15th September) and the South West Sevens competition in Term 4. There was strong representation at training from both the girls and boys.

Currently there are 34 registered teams for the SCOTS carnival including schools from the Darling Downs region and Brisbane. It will be an exciting day for girls and boys Under 14, 16 and Open age groups.
