Event description

Description

The ‘Ready to go Orienteering’ Park Event is for schools who have attended the RTGO Teacher Training Course.

The event will have a variety of orienteering activities including;

  • Map Walk
  • Maze Orienteering
  • Cone Punch
  • Star orienteering
  • Cross Country Orienteering courses

It will be a fun and activity filled day. The activities are aimed at students who have been introduced to Orienteering by their teachers, and this will bring them to the next level of skill. Taking them to larger and less familiar grounds.

The teachers accompanying the students will also have a busy day. For most of the activities the teachers will be the instructor for their classes. The event is open to Primary and Secondary schools from 4th class upwards. Each activity will be set up for Teachers to run for their students. So at least one teacher per group of 30.

The day will run from 10.30 to 1pm. As your group arrives at the venue they will be directed to an activity. When your group finishes an activity, they can move on to the next.

One week in advance of the day we will need the names of students attending so that we can set them up on the electronic timing system. The results will be available to the schools afterwards.

What to bring on the day:

Suitable outdoor clothing - Have a look at the forecast the day before and advise your students accordingly. They should expect to be outdoors on grass and paths for 3 hours.

Lunch and Water - there will be time between activities to have a break for a snack and some water. It is really important that all traces of litter is gone afterwards.

Enough adults for your group - there will be coaches and others to help on the day, but each teacher should expect to be instructing their own group. We will help you get started.
