Over the past eight weeks we have had a number of our students competing in a weekly series of orienteering events that have been held at schools in our area.

Competitors were awarded points for the place in which they finished, which qualified them to take part in an Auckland-wide final series of two races.

 

Over the weekend, Kieran Gawn and Wei-Zen Chang competed in the final series of races. Both did extremely well to qualify and they both acquitted themselves well. Kieran ultimately finished 11th out of 41 Y7/8 boys and Wei-Zen finished 32nd out of 45 Y7/8 girls.

 

Very special thanks must go to Mrs Janine Gawn who took on the responsibility of managing our team for this competition.
