Post Event Summary Provided by David Poland

52 kids from 15 ACT Secondary Schools and Colleges competed in the 2013 ACT Secondary Schools and Colleges Championships held at Canberra Grammar School in windy conditions. This, the first such championships since 2006, was for many entrants an eye opener into the razzamatazz of a major carnival. “I have never seen so much bunting at an event before” remarked one puzzled 14 year old. It was a great opportunity for the volunteers of the future to be inspired to take up orienteering as a lifetime sport. We look forward to seeing you at the 2014 High School Champs on  Sat 24th May 2014
