Taking on world in true Scots tradition

SHINING LIGHT: Henry Kamp, pictured far right with his Australian teammates at the World Rowing Junior Championships in Brazil, 2015, has been accepted to Yale.

HENRY Kamp, 18, a recent graduate of The Scots College, Sydney, received the news of admission to Yale University in the USA with great elation.

Already an accomplished rower, Henry, whose ambition upon leaving the College was to continue rowing throughout university, is well on the way to fulfilling his dreams as he will take up a place on the hallowed Yale University rowing team.

So far, Henry has seen great success in his rowing career, having started his journey just two years ago at Scots.

After being named Greater Public Schools sculling champion in 2015, Henry went on to represent Australia at the 2015 World Rowing Junior Championships in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil in the Junior Men’s Coxed IV.

This regatta was held as the test event for the 2016 Summer Olympic Games and Henry performed outstandingly, progressing all the way into the A Final.

Henry looks to further this career whilst studying at the Ivy League University and will start as a member of the Yale University heavyweight crew.

Henry is another example of the fine young men that graduate from The Scots College.

A distinctive Australian school, The Scots College defends the honourable traditions, adventures and learning of boys. 

The school exists to inspire boys to learn, lead and serve as they strive for excellence together.

Scots has been educating young men since 1893 from Sydney, NSW and many different nations from around the world.

The school is committed to developing a culture of high expectations that nourishes the development of creative, confident, accomplished young men.

As a boys' school, it acknowledges the importance of student engagement, of challenge and active learning opportunities.

Learning experiences are increasingly personalised – shaped in response to boys' stages of development rather than their age or year level.
