Orienteering requires students to use navigational skills with a map and compass to navigate on foot between points in usually unfamiliar and diverse terrain.
The School fields teams from Year 7 through to Opens based on player numbers. Training is held twice a week and all games are played on Saturdays against GPS schools.
