Victorian Rogaining Schools Competition

On Sunday 19th of June 37 students embarked on our annual Victorian Rogaining Schools Competition. This year we had 13 teams which could have been viewed as unlucky turned out to be quite the opposite with our students coming home with two of the three shields, they being the Aggregate boys and the Aggregate mixed whilst our girls came in second in the Aggregate girls behind PLC.
The location was Creswick which had a mix of pine plantation, open eucalyptus forest and cleared pine plantation. This area was bisected by some very deep gullies that made navigation interesting. Controls ranged from locations on broad spurs through to creek intersections and knolls with a 90 pointer being on the edge of a dry lake bed.
The students travelled on average around 18 kms with some teams covering distances closer to 24kms.
A big thank you to the teachers who supported the teams both during training at school and also at the event.

We look forward to 2017 and more great adventures in the Goldfields region of Victoria.
