Orienteering In Outdoor Ed

Today the boys from Outdoor Ed had their first go at orienteering. Once the boys got the hang of using a map they did really well to complete the course set up around the school.

For people who may not know what orienteering is about, have a go at answering these questions:

1: What is orienteering?
2: What was the hardest part about completing the course?
3: Next week we are going to Pax Hill to do some orienteering in the bush. What are the 2 things you are looking forward to most about this excursion?

Good job boys!
