In order to deliver orienteering activities in a school you may need to obtain further equipment.
The aim is to navigate in sequence between control points that are identified by a control marker. You can make your own, or they can be purchased from a commercial supplier.
You will also need some way of confirming the correct marker has been found. This can also be homemade or you can purchase a set of 10 orienteering punches, from the suppliers mentioned above.
If you want to take your school orienteering to the next level, you should consider buying the SportIDENT school kit, with punching units, chip finger cards and thermal printer. The kids will love it and the expected lifetime is more than 10 years.
Although compasses are not essential for curriculum learning on a school site, schools may wish to purchase a set for advanced learning and off site progression.
This is the elite compass mainly used by competitive orienteers. It can also be ordered and used in schools but it's more expensive than the traditional compasses.
