GPS Gold Challenge

GPS Gold Challenge

Planning is well underway for this year’s GPS Gold Challenge on 3-4 October (over the long weekend). Held every two years for Old Boys aged around 50, all nine GPS schools are represented making the GPS Gold Challenge the largest Old Boys’ event in Australia.

This year’s event, now in its sixteenth year, is for the GPS Old Boys who finished Year 12 in 1981 and 1982. Teams representing each school compete in 10 disciplines – golf, shooting, rowing, tennis, cricket, basketball, touch rugby, athletics, swimming and debating. The Challenge culminates with a dinner and debate. Over the weekend, funds are raised for Red Kite, which assists children and young people suffering from cancer.
