The Reremoana school orienteering teams took off to one tree hill ( Cornwall park ) to go and compete at the intermediate schools Auckland champs for 2017. This was the first year that we took all of our teams
( Year seven Boys and girls, and the two year 8 teams ) For some of us this was this was our first time going to an Auckland champs event and for some of us this was the last time we would do orienteering for Reremoana. We left from school at about 10:00, we were all very nervous and had huge butterflies. When we arrived and got off the bus we could all suddenly feel those butterflies we had but it was 10 x worse this time. The team captains went to go check the time and course we were all running. The order went Year 7 boys, Year 7 girls, Year 8 girls and the year 8 boys went last.
The orienteering course was very challenging for all of us, there were 6 different courses and every person in the team had a different map. There were lots of different obstacles on the course such as animals, hills, and styles. I think we all agreed when we said that there was lots of mud. We all gave 100% and did the very best of our abilities. We were proud to wear the Reremoana pride.
It was a very successful day, we were all proud of everyone who competed on the day. It was an unbelievable day and everyone enjoyed themselves we were all so happy to go and compete for Reremoana school. All of this wouldn’t of been possible without Mr Fourie he helped us get there and helped us prepare for this day.
