Orienteering is a competitive sport that combines racing with navigation, using the geographical skills of map reading and the physical activity of running or walking. Orienteering develops many transferable skills and links with both the Primary and Secondary PE Curriculum. Orienteering is surprisingly easy to implement and school grounds are often the best choice for a first-time, outdoor experience. It can be done both indoors and outdoors (making it a weatherproof adventure activity!) and without having to leave the school. The ‘real life’ problem solving skills experienced in orienteering can help make geography, maths and science much more relevant for students, whilst also helping them build on their confidence, communication and social skills.
After this training day your school will be Ready to Go…Orienteering!!! Get your school mapped out and receive a resource pack and equipment. Participants will also receive a Certificate of Participation from the Irish Orienteering Association on completion of this training.
Cost: €50 without school mapped or €70 if school also needs to be mapped
