10 OUTDOOR EDUCATION
Teacher in Charge: Ms T. Murphy
This course provides students with opportunities to become active, safe, and skilled in the outdoors and to protect and care for the environment. Adventure activities foster students' personal and social development through experiences involving co-operation, trust, problem solving, decision making, goal setting, communication, leadership, responsibility, and reflection. Through outdoor pursuits, students develop particular skills and attitudes in a range of outdoor settings. Students will investigate the importance of the outdoor environment and outdoor activities to the well-being of all New Zealanders. They will examine social, cultural, scientific, technological, and economic influences on outdoor activities, on the environment, and on how the environment is used.
