Course Description

Senior Level, Outdoor Education Course. 


Our full-year Outdoor Education course will fine-tune your abilities and core skills for operating safely and successfully in the outdoors and include multi-day adventures. You will be applying your weather interpretation skills, navigation, trip planning and preparation skills to undertake tramping expeditions that will include river crossings. 


This course includes three days and five-day tramping expeditions. Fine turning core skills will also be through the contexts of advanced rock climbing, mountain biking and orienteering.   As such you will need to provide your own serviced mountain bike and helmet that is fit for purpose. 

 

Please note this course will involve regular offsite trips in the afternoon after school finishes. The dates and times will be confirmed when the course starts.
