“We had a very enjoyable and successful day at Hopetoun House on Friday for the Scottish Schools Orienteering Festival. Even the weather was kind to us so Hopetoun House made a glorious setting and the beautiful lawns were perfect for a vigorous game of football after the orienteering. All 14 runners (Ayush, Ben, Reuben, Andrew, Pablo, Eddie, Max, Catie, Bethan, Qingyang, Fraser, Murray, Matthew and Aditi) navigated successfully round their courses.

We had some excellent results, including winning the overall Primary School shield! The overall results are attached which show that 10 out of the 14 Sciennes runners achieved a time within twice the winning time. A really great achievement given that many in the team had only done a little orienteering before.

Top 10 individual results were:

P5/6 Girls

7th Bethan

P5/6 Boys

1st Ben

4th Andrew

Team results:

P5/6 girls

3rd place Sciennes – Bethan, Catie and Qingyang

P5/6 boys

1st place Sciennes – Ben, Andrew and Eddie

Many thanks for supporting a school entry to this event. Thanks to all the parents who supported the children, Natalie Homer, Kate Kitchin, Doug Lyons, Rosa and myself.”
