Last Saturday,  17 teams of Year 9 students conquered the Brisbane Kokoda Challenge as part of their Rite Journey.

The teams tackled demanding courses ranging from 15km to 48km, learning the values of courage, endurance, mateship and sacrifice along the way, as displayed by soldiers who fought for Australia in WWII on the Kokoda Track.

Collectively, the grade has raised over $6,600 as part of the Challenge, which enables at-risk youth to take part in Kokoda Youth Foundation events. Well done to our teams, and a hearty thanks to our terrific team leaders and support crews!
