Orienteering & Rogaining
A number of students are involved in navigation sports at NPBHS.
Whether it is a one-off event (TSSSA Rogaining/Orienteering), or the regular Term 1 Monday-night sprint series, or the monthly club events (see the Orienteering Taranaki website), or the North Island and National competitions, there are opportunities to get involved at every level of commitment. Navigation skills are also essential for Adventure Racing, a sport that NPBHS is heavily involved in.
Navigation is also available as a SCP option, where training and experience can be gained on a weekly basis for Terms 2 and 3.
