​Last term Victoria Point State High School once again competed in the annual school’s challenge as part of the 48 hour Run for Redlands Charity Relay held locally at the Sharks Sporting Club. The secondary school’s challenge requires student teams of up to six participants to run as many laps of the oval (relay-style) as they can in a 60 minute race against the clock.
We were proud to enter five teams this year, the most of any school participating. All teams did an absolutely wonderful job for a very worthy cause, completing a combined total of 187 laps! Special mention must go to the four-person team of Luke Harvey (Year 11), Connor Duffy (Year 9), Zac Maguire (Year 8) and Ashley Lang (Year 11), who achieved the most laps of any team with a grand total of 42 completions over a distance of 18.48km.
All of our students achieved something truly special before a single lap was completed however, having come to the event with a combined donation of over $650. These funds raised were donated to the Redlands Hospital and the Redlands Centre for Women.
Two trophies were awarded on the day. These were for the school who completed the most laps, and another for the school who raised the most funds.  Our participating students, representing Victoria Point SHS, were once again awarded both perpetual shields.  As a school community, we are extremely privileged to be able participate in an event such as this each year and look forward to once again supporting this great cause in 2017.
