Claire Hanson

RUN LIKE the wind // Great Southern Grammar boarding students took part in a national challenge to run around Australia yesterday as part of National Boarding Week.

Cumulative one-kilometre runs by boarding students across the nation aim to reach the equivalent of Australia’s circumference. Totals will be tallied by the Australian Boarding Schools Association (@ABSA) to raise awareness the importance of residential boarding communities.


GSG boarders ran one kilometre each across campus and were rewarded with a pizza lunch and muffins by the Catering Team.

On Sunday, the boarders will take part in a Boarding Amazing Race with the five boarding houses competing against each other over clues and challenges.

Some great photos there Claire - it looks the boarders really got into it. As the running event isn't directly related to increasing active travel I unfortunately can't give you any YM activity points this time.
