TEAM Dore is growing more enthusiastic and TEAM building in Orienteering. After another very successful year our small but enthusiastic team are looking forward to NEW TEAM members joining next year!  Many, many thanks to Kathryn Davis for organising our team and to all those children and parents who support so well.  Mrs. Hopkinson's gift to the school is the siting of permanent orienteering markers that can be used at any time by children during lunch hours or free time as well as ready made courses for use in lesson times. These permanent markers can be used with the electronic tagging system provided by the DPA 2 years ago.  GREAT opportunity to build on our Orienteering successes :)

The Saturday Orienteering events are a GREAT family occasion and sporting event. Why not come along next year? Several of our younger children compete with their families :) See the 2015-2016 fixture list HERE. It is FREE for Dore pupils to enter as we do buy into SFSS for school sports competitions.  I may get to see you competing after October 15 :)
