The Kokoda Challenge

The Kokoda Challenge is an annual fundraising event. The spirit of Kokoda demonstrates that when we work together, look out for each other and show commitment to a task, things that at first seem impossible suddenly become achievable. We have students from Year 4 all the way through to Year 12 participating in the Kokoda events each year.

The challenge

Our passionate teachers support and encourage those students who enter the Kokoda Challenge in all their preparation and training for the event. Training starts in Term 1 and continues in Term 2, even during the school holidays. Strict attendance and disciplinary standards, physical conditioning and social service leads to self-discovery and the realisation that you are capable of far more than you ever thought possible.

The Kokoda Challenge Gold Coast, is hailed as the toughest team endurance event in Australia. Teams of four tackle 96km (the distance of the Kokoda Track) through the Gold Coast hinterland within a time limit of 39 hours (in honour of the 39th Militia, who were the first Australian response unit at Kokoda).

This event is not for the faint hearted – it’s all about supporting each other through to the end, pushing yourself beyond your limits to get you and your team across the finish line, and achieving something you thought you could.
