Our orienteering team set out on their first competitive fixture of the year on 23rd March. They were invited guests at the Warwick and Coventry Schools’ annual competition, this year held at Memorial Park in Coventry. In total, there were eighteen map readers from Years 4 to 8, competing on white and yellow courses around the park.
We enjoyed individual successes, with Bella, Amber, George, Oliver, Fredrik, Ethan, Clemmy and Lily all placing in the top three for their age group and class. With such good results, we went on to be named as the winners in the Primary Schools category! Our Year 7 and 8s, whilst not achieving such individual success, all recorded scoring times and overall came second in the lower secondary age group. The young athletes celebrated in style with doughnuts and hot dogs!
The next competitive event is the West Midlands Schools’ Championships on Saturday 11th May. Registration forms for anyone interested in this event will be coming out next week.
