2011 Genesis Hillary Challenge

Arguably New Zealand's toughest secondary school event, the five day competition consisted of two days of problem solving activities, two days of expedition navigation from Whakapapa Ski Field to the Mt Tongariro, and a multi-sport event on the final day. This competition requires both physical and mental strength and ultimately a lot of team work and communication. Our team was very strong in all these areas and we managed to come in 5th place which automatically puts us through to the finals for next year. This is one of the best results we have either had at the Hillary Competition and we are extremely proud of the magnificent effort that the team put in. A huge thank you to the coaches Lee Jones and Olivia Ford.
