This course offers learners an introductory experience into the world of Outdoor Education.

Do I have to do all the standards in the course?

  • YES. You will be entered for all standards in the course and are expected to give your best effort in all of them. The only exceptions will where an individual learning plan is approved by the specialist subject leader after consultation with your parents, tutor and student services.
  • This will only be approved where students have attempted the external topics and find them too difficult, in which case alternative internal standards may be included in their curriculum where able.
  • Students and parents must ensure that the individualised learning plan will still meet the entry requirements for tertiary study.

Frequently asked questions:

How much does the course cost?

The previous cost of the level two outdoor education course is $475 for the full year, however, the course outline has changed for 2017 and the cost will be lower than this. This is all inclusive and will cover the expenses associated with trips and camps such as transport, accommodation, instructors fees and equipment etc. Please note that this fee is less than half the actual cost of the course as it has been heavily subsidised by the school and the STAR funding. Application to the Course Due to the special nature of this course, applications must be approved by the head of department and numbers may be limited.
