12OED

Level 2 Outdoor Education

Course Description

Contact Person: A. MacDonald

Year 12 Outdoor Education

Four expeditions spread throughout the year will be planned for and run by the students. There is a big emphasis on planning and evaluation of the details of trips, and responsibility for decision making is placed upon students individually and as a group. Learning to roll a kayak and living in the snow are just part of the high level of challenge included in the course. Outdoor pursuits skills are focused upon in practicals as preparation for the trips away. Students are encouraged to grow in their leadership and risk management skills during the year. Commitment to a lunch hour and after school each week is essential. Assessment is practical and written. There is a relaxed atmosphere to learn, and a chance to enjoy the outdoors. Students will be given class time to catch up on any work missed due to trips away. Some weekend days may be scheduled to reduce days away from class.
