Orienteering is a great sport with indoor and outdoor activities catering for all ages and abilities. On top of being an excellent physical activity, Orienteering helps develop a student’s confidence with decision making both independently and through teamwork.
Orienteering can be used in the PE curriculum but it is also a fantastic cross-curricular activity that can support subjects such as Maths, PE and Geography. Orienteering has a lot to offer in terms of meeting the physical and mental developmental needs of students.
