Orienteering Updates


It has been a busy start to term with 17 students taking part in the Sprint Series which ran for five weeks on a Thursday afternoon at various schools. From these five-events Kristin had 3 of our students qualify to go through to the Sprint Series finals to be held on Sunday April 7.

Congratulations to Nate Leavy, Henry Elworthy and Pippa Plummer we wish them the best for the
finals.

Yesterday saw 4 students travel to Waiuku Forest to compete in the first forest event for 2019, where they found it a challenging course with lots of cutty grass to get through. However, they did
extremely well and had lots of fun running the event. 

This term has also seen Kristin Orienteering have Tegan Knightbridge coach our orienteers starting with a couple of classroom sessions on learning how to read maps and compasses. Tegan was also there to coach and support at the Sprint Series and Forest event where the students found this very helpful.
