SC-ORE School Safe Orienteering, the ideal introduction to outdoor adventure sports, saw 140 ACT primary school students – 70 girls and 70 boys, aged 8 to 12, give their all in this year’s 4-week team based challenge. With events conducted on unfamiliar maps and requiring some complex navigation, all 140 did their best to conquer the course setters game plan. Students keenly arrived early to events (yes, this is a BEFORE school endeavour!) eager to take to the start box.
Clearly the perfect “starter pack”, SC-ORE provides a well-supported introduction to competitive orienteering in a safe and supervised environment. Key ingredients include:
- Engaged parents – terrific as volunteers and respectful spectators!
- Host schools – thanks to North Ainslie Primary, Ngunnawal Primary, Emmaus Christian School and St Thomas More’s Primary for supporting the 2017 Spring series by sharing your facilities.
- Participating students – AMAZING team spirit, exuberance and keenness to try something different! Well-done to the 35 teams. Congratulations to Aranda M (1st place), Curtin A (2nd place), and Majura 4 (3rd place).
