Outdoor Education is a NSW Department of Education Approved Elective Course

Course details are not included on RoSA

Course details are included on School Report

This course is based on experiential learning and provides students with the opportunity to explore and gain a deeper understanding of their surroundings through participating in a wide range of outdoor experiences. Students will develop a range of interpersonal skills, self-management and specialised movement skills and work together to be active and safe in a variety of outdoor environments.

Through studying outdoor education, students will develop personal wellbeing and a sense of place and connection as a result of a greater understanding and appreciation of the local natural environment. Students learn skills that encourage them to minimise their impact on the environment and understand why this is so important. The course will prepare students for pathways into further high school studies and subsequent career pathways such as outdoor leadership and guiding, environmental planning and ecotourism.

The content is organised in modules reflective of five focus areas:

• Outdoor activity and exploration skills

• Environmental awareness, conservation and sustainability

• Personal and social skills, growth and development

• Connecting with the natural environment

• Health, safety, and wellbeing in the outdoors
