Orienteering

Introduction

The Auckland Grammar School Orienteering Team train and compete throughout the year at the Auckland Orienteering Club Summer Series, Secondary Schools Championships and at the Auckland Orienteering Series.

We welcome all students to join us in the summer series to train for the championship events later in the year.
