Ravenscraig Park project underway.

STAG's work in North Lanarkshire continues to expand with another innovative project this time centred on the Regional Sports Facility at Ravenscraig.

Initiated by our very own NLC Education Liaison Officer, Jim McCormack a permanent resource is being installed in the local park primarily for use by youngsters associated with Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme based in the area.

Added to this STAG hope to host the 202 Scottish Schools Orienteering Festival in June at Drumpellier Country Park, Coatbridge.

Our MEGA package of resources now offers 51 different maps/courses to provide even more challenging Orienteering experiences on your own school campus.

Although each package consists of a certain quantity of maps this in no way reflects how many different times/ways/approaches can be used to deliver orienteering.

A variety of 'Organisational Approaches'' - Pairs / Individuals / Team - as well as on occasions sampling a selection of Controls from Courses and then moving from participation > performance and challenging memory all contribute to making Orienteering a valid sport to be incorporated into a PE Department's Programme or as part of an Outdoor Mathematical Experience or as Team Building through Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme.

The possibilities are endless and STAG is always keen to explore innovative ideas from Staff.
