Pax Hill Orienteering

IMG_0765Today the Outdoor Ed group travelled to Pax Hill to have a go at orienteering in the bush. The boys had to use maps to navigate their way around the Pax Hill bush in small teams and find the hidden markers. After completing the orienteering we were lucky enough to explore the site and have a go at the challenge course and the mine.
A great morning had by all!

Boys, a few questions:

1. What was the hardest part of orienteering in the bush?
2. What did you enjoy most about orienteering?
3. What was the most enjoyable thing you did at Pax Hill?
4. Who do you think demonstrated good leadership skills at Pax Hill and why?
