ORIENTEERING

Welcome back to another year of Orienteering, and if this is your first year at Waiuku College, welcome. I know you will have a great time navigating your way through many Orienteering courses.

In 2012 Waiuku College, once again started competing in the Orienteering Circuit, and since then we have been very proud of all our students, many making the podium at many events and even Kurtis Shuker making the NZ Orienteering Team in 2017.

With the special help of Mr Ross Brighouse and Mr Wayne Aspin and Parent Support from Mrs Katrina Thompson, and van drivers Mrs Tina North and Ms Jane Patterson we have been able to have over 30 students involved last year, and I know this year the numbers will only grow. Please go to the Expression of Interest page and complete if you are wanting to be entered into the 7-week Sprint Series which is run every Monday night. We will be taking a van to each event but if we have more than a van fill we will be needing some parent helpers for transport.
