St John’s Primary School have been crowned Coleraine Primary Orienteering Champions for the first time. In a very close result, three schools had a full score, Eden Primary School, Harpur’s Hill and St John’s.
St John’s took the trophy with the fastest aggregate time of 99.58 minutes, with Eden in second and Harpur’s Hill in third place. The pupils are pictured with their principal Mrs Helen McDonnell and the trophy.
Another sunny evening and Thursday Evening Event 5 was at the University of Ulster Coleraine. The planner, Ross,had us twisting and turning throughout the campus ground. Although one competitor, Becky Dog, was told she shouldn’t be on campus but as she was nearly finished she ran on but next year will have to stay at home. Thanks to Ross Walker for a great evening.
