To get to the grand final, the Onslow College team won the Lower North Island regional competition by a comfortable margin, competing against 21 other school teams across disciplines of orienteering, mountain biking, climbing, and kayaking.

Our eight team members, Ollie, Ben, Ryan, Alan, Greer, Rose, Tessa and Micah have been training for this competition up to four times a week since March.

Having won the Regionals they have been invited to attend the grand final of the Get2Go competition, organised by Hillary Outdoors  Education Centre (http://www.hillaryoutdoors.co.nz/juniorget2go/). This event is to be held on Great Barrier Island over 8-13 December 2019. 

As it is so late they have missed out on the big grants available. 

We have to raise $8000 in three months to help them achieve this.



 A Huge thankyou to all of those supporting the team with sponsorship. It is much appreciated.
