Course no obstacle for charity
Published on: 27 June 2014
A challenging obstacle course, set up in the Gymnasium Precinct this week, tested the skills of Years 4 to 6 boys and raised more than $1,000 for a charity.
For a gold donation, the boys raced to complete the course in the quickest time with all proceeds going to Yalari, a not-for-profit organisation providing secondary education scholarships at leading Australian boarding schools for Indigenous children from remote, rural and regional communities.
Preparatory School Sportsmaster Brady Leckie, who co-ordinated the event, said the boys really enjoyed the head-to-head battles. “Competition always brings out the best spirit in the Prep boys and this simple obstacle course really promoted participation,” Mr Leckie said.
Each class, from Years 4 to 6, spent 35 minutes tackling the course with background music adding to the fun, high-energy vibe over the two days.
The following 2014 Wipeout Champions receive a prize from Mr Leckie for clocking up the fastest times:
Year 4 – Nicholas Tomlinson (4JM)
Year 5 – Angus Sheldrick (5JG)
Year 6 – Barney Woo (6PW)
