Harrison Dean (OH 2017) giving back to his school through the Haileybury Spark Series. 

Harrison completed a Commerce degree at UoM  and is completing Postgraduate studies in Engineering, he explained to students that the breadth model at the university gave him the flexibly to shape his degree in a way that allowed  him to focus on areas of interest such as Finance and Economics, whilst also studying Science subjects that would enable him to study engineering. Harrison is the Vice President of the Aerospace and Engineering Society.

Both presenters spoke of the value of  the clubs at University. It helped them to  make friends with likeminded people and  emphasised  how it can also help you to build your capacity beyond just the academic work.

They encouraged our students to embrace all that universities have to offer and to have the confidence and self-belief that you can succeed.

Stephanie’s journey into Law was via  Business/ Arts degree before transferring into Law/Arts.  She firmly believes that your ATAR does not dictate opportunity and if you are prepared to work hard and persist then you can achieve your goals. Stephanie provided an insight into some common expectations versus the actual reality of University and life, working as a Lawyer.

The OHA Football Club are proud to announce that Daniel Ward (aka Wardy) has been appointed their Men’s Senior Coach for 2022 and 2023. His reappointment for a further two years follows a very successful year for the Club where their Men’s Senior team were well placed to win the B Grade Premiership before COVID-19 led to the abandonment of finals.
 
Wardy has previously coached the team to a C Grade Premiership in 2017 and is champing at the bit to add some silverware to the collection.
 
President Mick Constable (OH ’84) said “we are really excited to have Wardy coaching our Men’s Senior team again. He has had a massive influence at the Club moulding our young team into a really competitive and hungry outfit who are determined to win premierships. We highly value Wardy’s contribution to both on and off the field, as we continue to build momentum in all parts of the Club”.

Joining Wardy on the sidelines again in 2022 as assistant coaches will be Club Legends Darren Seccull (OH ’83) and Stewie Loewe who together form a formidable coaching group.

"I am thrilled to be given the opportunity to Coach our OHAFC Senior Men’s Team for Seasons 2022 & 2023" Wardy said.
