Year 7 Orienteering

In July 2019, thirty Year 7 students had the opportunity to attend an orienteering event held at Maldon Promenade Park.

The day was part of an orienteering festival, run by Essex Stragglers Society. The students were taken by minibus to and from the venue. They spent an hour learning orienteering techniques, such as map reading, and then played games using their new skills. Once the students had completed their games and activities, they took part in a competition against one another and the other schools that were in attendance. Students had to go out and find as many of the thirty controls as possible across the course within a 30 minute time limit.

The students all did extremely well and were able to learn some new skills in a fun and challenging environment. One of our pairs of students was very successful and managed to get all thirty controls; the only pair to achieve this throughout the whole day.
