Orienteering Competition
On Thursday 10th May, 12 children from year 5/6 took part in an orienteering competition held at Desborough College. There were 6 teams in total from Maidenhead.
The children were given a map of the school site and had to visit 16 different stations as fast as they could.
St Edmund Campion pupils were at their best and were the quickest team to finish and received gold medals.
