Course Description

Teacher in Charge: L. Martin

This course is designed for students who have a passion for outdoor activities.  There are no entry requirements other than a willingness to take part in physically demanding outdoor activities which are a compulsory part of this course.  

Using a range of local resources this course would allow students to gain 16 credits in a range of outdoor settings.  Students would learn a range of life skills such as teamwork, leadership, self-management, self-responsibility etc.

The course will involve some co-construction with students and therefore activities and standards cannot be predetermined.

Possible activities include tramping, camping, navigation, ABL, rafting, mountain biking, sailing, rock climbing, fishing and shooting.

This course does not lead to a University Entrance approved subject.

Field trips: to be confirmed.
