St Andrews has an extraordinary affinity with the Kokoda Challenge having participated for the past 13 years and won over 10 Kokoda races. Each year the College provides opportunities for 50 plus students and staff to enter this endurance event. The school is highly respected within the local and Kokoda community for entering multiple teams. Each year St Andrews has had a 100% completion rate and currently holds the course record on multiple events.
Students in Years 10 to 12 have an opportunity to form teams (4 students and a staff member) to participate in the Brisbane or Gold Coast Kokoda Challenge events. The teams will train throughout Term One and Term Two to prepare for the events. Teams can choose either the 30km, 48km or 96km event option.
