On 23 October 2017, The Andrew Kovari Trophy Cabinet was unveiled by the Principal of the College Dr. Ian P M Lambert, in conjunction with the outgoing President of the Snowsports Association Peter Weinert, in the presence of some Senior College Staff and Association Committee Members.
This Cabinet has been named in recognition of Mr Andrew Kovari’s incredible contribution to Snowsports at Scots.
The Cabinet is located in the foyer area adjacent to the Boarders Dining Room in the Centenary Building in the Senior School, only metres from the Founder's Room.
Mr Kovari joined Scots in 1975, and in 1980 started Snowsports activities, becoming the Senior School Master in Charge in the late 1980s, and later Director of Snowsports, and is widely recognised as the founder, driving force and passion behind Snowsports at Scots.
His tireless hard work and commitment in helping to create a pathway and journey for Senior School boys to become involved and compete in Snowsports at all levels, is second to none.
From the time the first few Scots families became interested in Snowsports in the early 1980s, he has helped guide and encourage Scots boys to compete in Interschools, Open and International Championships over several decades.
As a direct result The Scots College has become a pre-eminent powerhouse in Interschools Snowsports competitions in Australia.
With outstanding assistance since 1993 from Mr Clive Tanner, MIC of Snowsports in the Preparatory School, Mr Kovari, through encouragement and motivation, has cultivated the best in many Scots boys, who have represented Sydney and Australia in International Children’s Winter Games, as well as other major international competitions on the world stage.
Mr Kovari established the first Snowsports Academy in 2011, and is an Inductee of the NSW Interschools Snowsports Hall of Fame.
