Our programs are well under way for the year – so much so that we haven’t had much time to sit down and share any of our stories and photos with you.
The Certificate III in Guiding course started in mid-February and we have 20 new students currently engrossed in their training. Our Certificate III in Outdoor Recreation program started in late February and we have 11 students currently studying navigation and teaching techniques this week.
Our Guiding students visited Mt. Field before Easter to focus on learning their alpine vegetation, geology and outdoor catering. A walk to the Lake Seal Lookout provided the perfect ‘outdoor classroom’ as they learnt about the glaciation process, right in front of them. A small team of caterers then had the responsibility of cooking a three-course meal on an MSR fuel stove for twenty of their hungry peers! They did a fantastic job and the group were all well fed.
We left Mt. Field with full tummies and a greater appreciation for our alpine plants and the glaciation process.
