B) Support for Schools
Support is available in a number of forms:
- An orienteering map can be made of of your school (or updated if one is already available) and training provided to enable you to use software to plan & print your own courses. Basic information about orienteering activities suitable for schools will also be provided. Schools need to be prepared to contribute towards the cost of a new map. The amount will vary depending on school size (Primary School, High School, R - 12 Campus). A quote will be provided when a mapping request is submitted.
- For the schools with an orienteering map - see this SCHOOL MAP. Note that some maps may require an update in order to be used for orienteering activities in the school.
- Subject to availability a coach will be able to work with you with an in school activity using the above map. Cost: $50 per class for a one hour session or similar including gst. . The cost for maps where supplied by OSA will be advised. Please email below to discuss your requirements and the costs.
- Primary schools are encouraged to apply for Sporting Schools funding to cover costs of in school sessions and production of a school map.
