SAPSASA – ORIENTEERING RELAYS
Thirty one students from our school competed in the South Australian Orienteering School Relay Championships held at the South East Parklands held on the 9th August. It was held in sunny, cool conditions perfect for running. In a lead up to this there were a number of training opportunities with the use of maps to locate controls around the school and Mortlock Park as well as information sessions on DIY courses and strategies. Thank you to the students who regularly attended this.
Electronic sticks were used for the first time at a school relay to monitor whether competitors had visited all of the right controls in the right order and also to record their times. A big thankyou to the parents who helped prepare their children for this relay by taking them to either do a DIY course or an Orienteering SA event before this.
There was mixed success at this event with no significant placings in the teams that competed. Our best result for teams was 11th in the Primary Boys out of 27. All of our students’ efforts were noteworthy as they endeavored to run hard and keep trying when they were unsure of their location.
Students were well assisted by volunteers from Orienteering SA who they could approach for help if they were lost or injured. On the results page on the Orienteering SA page there were some very promising individual results from at least six of our students. Please keep in mind students from Year level 3 up to Year 7 were competing against each other. I have included a table below of the standout individual results from our school.
PRIMARY A COURSE STANDOUTS – BOYS AND GIRLS TOGETHER – 40 competitors
Student Placing Time Time behind the winner
Daniel Rowett 5th 15:42 +3:58
Charlotte O’Grady 6th 17:40 +5:58
Giselle Draper 12th 19:20 +7:38
PRIMARY B COURSE STANDOUTS – BOYS AND GIRLS TOGETHER – 39 competitors
Student Placing Time Time behind the winner
Ella Mitlan 9th 15:58 +4:57
Trent Harris 11th 17:40 +6:03
Angus Chave 15th 19:00 +7:59

The school now has membership with Orienteering SA. Students from the school can now enter events for free. Parents are encouraged to shadow their child on courses until they gain the confidence and skill level to do it by themselves. To shadow a child does not incur a charge. A number of events close to Adelaide will be coming up later this year. A big thank you to Des Norman who spent many hours supporting our orienteerers.
