Resources for Teachers

Orienteering resources for teachers provided by Orienteering Western Australia include:

  • The Orienteering for Schools booklet aimed at teachers interested in developing their own orienteering programs.
  • Lesson plans from Mike Sibbald, an orienteering coach and teacher, whose school (St Brigids PS) has consistently achieved success at inter-school orienteering competitions.
  • Permanent orienteering courses, updated recently and now promoted as Anytime Orienteering; plus a range of other maps.
  • Our Orienteering Shop can also provide equipment for schools.
