Congratulations to all the juniors who took part in last Saturdays NW Heat for the Yvette Baker Trophy at Aitken Wood, organised by PFO. The team, consisting mainly of students from Fallibroome Academy, tied for 1st place with WCOC on 890 points and so gained a place in the Final. A fantastic achievement!
The Final will take place on Sunday 7th July at Sandringham. We wish them all the very best of luck.

The NWOA are re launching their Colour Badge Scheme, which recognises the progression of orienteers through colour coded events from WHITE to LIGHT GREEN
As reported by Peter Hayes
Fantastic results from Fallibroome students who took part in one of the major events of the year. Twenty-nine students travelled south to brave the cold and sometimes wet weather at Sutton Park in Sutton Coldfield on Sunday 20 November 2016. Once the team had set up their base camp it was a quick reminder about what course they would be running and to make sure they had a whistle and compass. With one member of staff at base and the other at the start we were able to make sure all our students arrived at the start early to prepare for their run.
Congratulations to Matthew Fellbaum who has been selected to represent Great Britain in the 2016 European Youth Orienteering Championships, which are being held in Jaroslaw, Poland from 30th June to 3rd July 2016.
He has also been provisionally selected for the 2016 Junior European Cup, which will be held in Central Scotland from 30th September to 2nd October 2016. (Selections to be confirmed in July.)
