House Orienteering Competition
Published on 29/06/18
The third week of June again saw the House Orienteering Competition take place around the school grounds at lunchtimes, when pupils from the Prep School and the Senior School took the opportunity to explore a number of remote and rarely visited corners of the school grounds. The substantial undergrowth clearance programme undertaken in the grounds over the last few months opened up several hitherto inaccessible areas, presenting participants with more interesting and varied route choices and tempting more than a hundred pupils to try at least one of the five courses available. Quite a few got to round two or more, though no one managed to complete all five.
In a repeat of last year’s outcome, the results of the competition were emphatic wins for Norwood in the Prep School and Esher in the Senior School.
Following the House competition, 16 pupils were selected to represent the school in the Surrey Schools and Youth Orienteering Festival on 3 July.
