NCEA Level 1 Outdoor Education

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mrs H. Simm

Year 11 Outdoor Education is our entry level to the senior Outdoor Education program. Students will participate in a variety of assessment opportunities all of which have a theory and practical component. The outdoor education course is taught in the following modules:

  • Complete rock climbing and abseiling sessions
  • Participate in adventure based learning activities
  • Participate in mountain biking
  • Participate in an overnight camp and tramp in the bush
  • Participate in Paddle boarding and rafting

Students will complete a variety of standards listed following co-construction with the teacher. The expectation is that students will attend all scheduled field trips as well as show enthusiasm and passion for the subject. 

A student will be withdrawn from a standard if the teacher is not confident that the achievement of the standard is within the reach of the student or there is no evidence of the student attempting the assessment.
