What a great day we had on Friday with our annual schools orienteering carnival. The rain that was threatened to arrive at 12 pm did not come until late afternoon so we were very fortunate weatherwise. We had 675 students from 9 schools attending, including 63 secondary students.

Congratulations to The Armidale School on reclaiming the PSSA trophy for best overall primary school performance. The PSSA trophy scores achieved by each school on the line and score courses were
