Fallibroome Academy at the British Schools Orienteering Championships 2016

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.
