Orienteering County Finals

7 July 2016 (by Miss Rogers (Year6Group1))

CTK march into Blackpool!!!!

On Tuesday 5th July, 6 pupils from year 6 headed down to Stanley Park, Blackpool, from Spirit of Sport. When arrived there we were all shocked by the abundance of children who attended, there were approximately over 2,000 people at this event. We were very lucky to meet a GB 2012 Olympic representative Chris McDermott. We got straight in to the orienteering event which was challenging yet fun at the same time. After 30 minutes of hard work, we had time to play on the park. We then had a presentation, for all the competitors who took part. We saw lots of amazing acts such as, Street Monkeys, Unity of Faith and the gifted and talented year 6 dancers plus many more.. Out of all the teams - Team Burnley won, and Harrison Pearce and Hannah McMahon were asked to collect the trophy. WE BEAT CHORLEY BY 1 POINT!!!!!
