Orienteering

© St. Pius X BNS

On Wednesday the 28th of September, my class ( Mr. Gough’s 6th class ) went to Marlay Park where we competed in an orienteering competition. We left the school by bus at 10:30am and arrived at the park at around 10:45am. Our starting time was 12 noon so we were quite early, but everyone was glad that they got to look over their maps for awhile! When it was time to go we all got into a line and waited for our queue. It was a great experience to be out in the park and reading the map to see where you would go next but you also had to be quite aware of your surroundings to find yourself on the map. Some of the boys went in pairs and some went by themselves. Weatherwise, it was one of the best days for it. The sun was shining and there was an occasional breeze to cool you off. I thought it was going to be easy but it was actually a nice challenge, not too hard. When everyone had finished we all boarded the bus back to school. Back in our classroom Mr. Gough said that we behaved so well that he gave us homework off!!! That was the best day of the school year so far and I hope that there are more days to come just like this one.
