Congratulations to Tom Harding.

GHS Year 10 student Tom Harding competed in the NZ Secondary Schools Orienteering team held in Queensland, Australia during the holidays. The team comprised 16 students from New Zealand:  4 junior boys; 4 junior girls; 4 senior boys; and 4 senior girls, all selected at National trials.  

The team was successful, retaining the Southern Cross Trophy in the competition against the Australia states. Tom’s Junior Boys team won the relay in a very close finish. Tom ran the first leg and secured second place just seven seconds behind the leader. Tom also had a good run in the Individual (long) event, securing fourth place, to help the Junior Boys team win that grade.

Well done Tom on this great achievement.
