Thursday 13 September: Bushwalking for Covenant College
Covenant College approached the Canberra Bushwalking Club for assistance in running some bush walks, part of the year 9/10 sports unit, where a number of different activities are tried. The Walks Secretary forwarded the request to a number of members and, as I live just down the road, I was more than happy to offer assistance.
I met with the Benji W, the College Sport and Outdoor Education Teacher, and was given a schedule of dates.
Distance: 5.1km | Climb: 150m | Time: 12.50pm – 2.40pm (1hrs 50mins) | Grading: S/M; E(5)
Photographs are available, where you can start a large sized slideshow.

I’d popped together a little presentation on:
- Where to walk in Canberra and the ACT?
- How do you find out where to walk?
- Plan your walk
- How to navigate
- Clothing and equipment
Our planning section put together a little ramble from the college, via Stranger Hill (with a couple of geocaches) and across the Bicentennial National Trail, to a little beach on the Murrumbidgee River.
We then went to ramble it. Never heard so much happy chatter on a walk before … and never felt so old.
