Beaconhills College narrowly missed winning the national final of the Hillary Challenge after leading 12 schools in the competition throughout the two-day event.
The Hillary Challenge is an outdoor team competition aimed at developing leadership, resilience, creativity and teamwork.
The national finals were held in the first weekend of October at Camp Jungai near Eildon. The multisport event included a series of challenges, including rogaining, cycling, kayaking, raft-building and various other tests of skills, creativity and endurance.
Having progressed through the State finals and trained tirelessly all year, the team of five students were disappointed to just miss out on first place – losing points after leaving a map behind at a checkpoint.
Head of Outdoor Education Sam Maddock said the students had performed brilliantly as a team and had trained hard in the lead-up to the event, including running from Pakenham to Berwick Campus.
“They had really worked out that when you put your mind to it, you can get results,” Mr Maddock said. “It was an outstanding effort, particularly as they were the youngest team in the competition.”
He congratulated team members Cooper R, Madison M, Renae J and Will J from Year 10 along with Year 9 student Kaigyn T.
