Level 2 Outdoor Education
Teacher in Charge: Ms R. Bouterey
This exciting and energetic course focuses on introducing students to Risk Management planning, Social Responsibility, Leadership skills, Trip Planning and understanding Recreational Activities. These concepts are applied through the contexts of bouldering, Mountain Biking, Tramping and Bushcraft. Students will have many trips throughout the year and also attend a week long camp at Hillary Outdoors on Great Barrier Island. The course consists of both theory and practical lessons.
Students must be aware that some camps and trips will be during school time. Students will be selected based on their ability to cope with this and their participation in Year 11 PE. Course endorsement is achievable. Total cost for the year is approximately $990.
