Walk-a-thon Week 2 Update

Published on: September 10th, 2017

Where have we been walking/running?

… to and from school, Father’s Day outings, on the beach, all over Holland Park West & Tarragindi, in the school’s cross country and over 40 people join the Group Walk – Bush Scavenger Hunt in Toohey Forest last Saturday and…

geocaching started at fever-pitch last Saturday with dozens of kids out searching for the 11 hidden boxes …and amazingly, several have already found them ALL!!! The ‘treasure swap’ caches have been popular! The boxes will stay out for the 6 weeks so you can go searching any time. (NB. Someone pinched the bonus cache at Glindemann Park so its no longer there). Congrats to Lily 5R on being the first to find all the geocaches, and Tyler 4M on being second and first to find one of the secret caches!

“…then after finding the final cache at the summit (of Mt Gravatt) we enjoyed a late breakfast or early lunch. Definitely would recommend the café at the top…. Woo hoo. A great day we found all the caches and achieved over 10 000 steps. Thank-you”. (Year 4 family)
