INCURSIONS

An ASC accredited orienteering coach (with current WwCC or Teacher Registration) will attend your school and run a series of orienteering activity sessions.

These sessions form a strong basis for entry into and participation in club events and school championships.

Unit plans, assessment criteria and suggested reporting comments are provided.

Due to the limitations of campus size, coaches will work with one class at a time.

Incursion Fee Tiers

1-2 Lessons on the same day$188
3-4 Lesson on the same day$255
5+ Lessons on the same day$355

All fees inclusive of GST. Fees are subject to change and may vary due to coach availability and travel. Contact the OV office to confirm current pricing and services.

 

Mapping

The map is our competition arena. You will need a detailed orienteering map of your school grounds to complete orienteering activities.

The map is a useful tool that can be used in a variety of teaching contexts and subject areas: maths, geography, science, outdoor ed. and H&P.E.

Maps are produced to international standard where possible.

Mapping usually takes between 2 and 4 weeks to complete and will involve the mapper visiting the campus a number of times to complete fieldwork. All mappers have a current Working with Children Check and will liaise with you to arrange appropriate times to be on site.

Fees range from $350 – $800 depending on your campus size and complexity as well as travel. Most small primary campuses will be $350. Contact the OV office for a quote.

From parks and streets to bush and forest - there is an adventure for you.
