Orienteering

Home » Sport » Orienteering

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. It was reintroduced at the school in 2015.

Six of our girls qualified to take part in the League finals that were held at the Zoo on 12 March 2018.  Our Junior finalists were Kalista January (Grade 9C), Linky Nzuzu (Grade 9T) and Jadyn Hovelmeier (10D), while our seniors were represented by captain Tiffany Harzon (Grade 12E), vice-captain Erin Conroy (Grade 12E) and Kimberley January (Grade 11E). Congratulations to Jadyn for coming 5th in the league finals and to Tiffany and Erin for achieving 6th and 9th positions respectively.

When the overall League results for the entire season were finalized we were delighted to have Tiffany placed 5th in a total field of about 80 senior girls.
