Scottish Schools’ Orienteering Festival 2019 open for entries

This year’s Scottish Schools’ Orienteering Festival is set to take place at Hopetoun House in South Queensferry on Friday 7 June and schools from across the country are encouraged to come and take part!

The festival is aimed at pupils who have been introduced to orienteering through their school and courses will be set for Primary 5 and upwards – at a level which allows success for all pupils who have grasped the basic skills.
