Congratulations and thank you to the orienteering team and their parents who made the long journey to Nottingham University for the Yvette Baker trophy national final. Amy, Ben, Jamie, Lucy, Tom L, Tom M, Oliver and Zac represented Essex Stragglers in this premier club competition for juniors. It is wonderful to see our pupils forging strong links between school and club. The children showed great commitment as they competed in yet another national event. Our very young orienteers stepped up to the challenge of running a very tricky ‘yellow’ course within the university site. The Essex Stragglers team who also included many former St. Andrew’s pupils - Chloe Cracknell, Beth Lucas, Daisy and Josh Partridge, Hannah Peters, Callum and Tom Turner – achieved a very commendable 9th place. Congratulations to all who took part and a special well done to Oliver and Tom M on their fast times which contributed valuable points to the team total. Thank you to our eight intrepid orienteers for being great ambassadors for St. Andrew’s.
