Orienteering Australia (OA) is pleased to announce that it has contracted Mike McLaughlin of McLaughlin Sports Consultancy (MSC) to deliver both the National High Schools and Primary Schools Projects.

As one of four submissions received by OA , after reviewing MSC’s proposals, a panel interview with Mike, and reference checking, OA had no hesitation in awarding MSC the two projects.

Work has already started on the two projects with States already having nominated a representative with experience in delivering orienteering programs to schools to a Project Reference Group (PRG) to support MSC. The PRG will provide MSC with Orienteering specific technical expertise and context relating to the project to ensure the relevance of outcomes.

The first virtual meeting of the PRG is scheduled to take place later this week.

Based on updated project plans the two projects are expected to be delivered later this year in November.
