SA Schools Championships

Sunday, 21 August 2016

The 2016 Schools Championships was held at Woodhouse on a very pleasant, sunny day.  Nevertheless some areas encountered by participants were very wet due to the high rainfall received in the Adelaide Hills this winter.

The day was very successful and OSA appreciates the important part played by teachers and parents who bring students to this event.  Another feature of the day is the volunteers from all clubs who assist to make the day run smoothly.

Of course the organising club this year was Wallaringa O. C. and key people who worked very hard to make the day a success were

Regina Reuter:  Event Secretary

Andrew Kennedy: Course Setter

Jenny Casanova:  Organiser  
and finally others to contribute were Adrian Uppill  as the controller and Ken Thompson who coordinated the computing.

O.S.A. hopes that students who took part will keep in touch with this web site and access some of the many events held throughout the year.

Winners of the school shields were
Primary School Williams Shield: East Adelaide
High School Wale Shield: Aberfoyle Park 


All results are here
