Orienteering

Home » Sport » Orienteering

is sport has seen a small revival, with a few Kensington schools travelling to join the league in the North. We reintroduced the sport in 2015. Orienteering is a running (and walking) sport that is a lot of fun as it involves navigation skills. It combines a good sense of direction, map- reading skills, strategic thinking and stamina and is a bit like a grown-up treasure hunt.

A team of 20 girls competed in 7 fixtures in term 1. In the finals we had good results with good performances in the top 20 seniors and juniors.
