Carey Medallist 2013


Mr Jeffrey Chapman

In 1965, the School Principal, Mr Cramer, saw something special in a young Jeff Chapman and appointed him to the prestigious position of School Captain. Jeff did not disappoint. He had a stellar year: he excelled in the academic field, was awarded The Senior Henry Meeks Award for Leadership, Scholarship and Games, captained both the First Cricket and Football teams and was also part of the First Athletics team. 

Jeff went on to play two games of VFL football for Melbourne under the legendary coach, Norm Smith, and he holds a record that will probably never be beaten. He only had two kicks and both were goals, so you could say every kick he had in his VFL career was a goal!
