WA hits the mark in Ballarat!


A large contingent of WA locals, including our WA Schools Team, travelled to Ballarat to represent WA in the Australian Orienteering Championships carnival. Held in Victoria. Our Schools Team members held many top ten results and had a great time. All Orienteering races have different levels of difficulty and distances according to each age group. Using a map to navigate from checkpoint to checkpoint in as little time possible, in complicated mining terrain can be very tricky when you are used to WA’s rolling spur-gully bushland. Well done everyone!


Spooks in the Park


Saturday 31 October 2015, Hyde Park, Perth

Spooks in the Park is the first event ever of its kind in WA! You are invited to join in a day full or fun, frolics and fantasies! Ghosts, witches, zombies all await you as you make your way through the interactive adventure course around Hyde Park. Some games will be a test of bravery or brawn while others will test your brains. If you manage the challenge, a free goody bag awaits you!

Arrive 10 minutes before your allocated start time, where you’ll begin in groups of 20 spooky friends or foes. Waves of little ghouls, zombies and goblins will set off every 10 minutes from 11am. Last start time is 4pm.

It is recommended for the spirit of the event, to dress up as your favourite character! There are many fun prizes up for grabs – including prizes for best-dressed!

Tickets cost just $5.50 per child. Tickets must be bought in advance if you want your goody bag! Buy online, click here. Tickets are limited to so book now before they run out!
