Newlands Orienteerers and Orienteering teams find success

Congratulations go to our Orienteering squad who were named the top school after the recent Rogaine Championship. 

Within the Orienteering squad there were some notable performances. Liam Kendrew (Y11) and Seb McBride (Y10) placed 1st and 2nd respectively in the Intermediate Boys grade. Reuben Allen (Y9) finished 5th in Junior Boys, and Casey Norman (Y12) 7th in the very tough Senior Boys grade. Click here for a full list of the placings from the Orienteering series.

As a result of their performances, some of these athletes were selected for the Wellington Regional Schools Team. The Wellington Region comprises Taranaki, Manawatu, Wellington, Hutt Valley and Waiarapa. At Queens Birthday, the Wellington Team will compete against teams from Auckland, Hawkes Bay, the South Island and I understand a team from Australia may attend.

Congratulations to Liam and Seb have been selected for Wellington A and Casey for Wellington B.
