Canoeing Expedition. The Tassie Tigers will first be taught paddle strokes, canoe saftey and capsize drill, then they will canoe down the Kalgan River.

All students need to bring:

  • Some form of enclosed shoe (for when in the canoe) as one of the common canoeing injuries is from broken glass in the water. Reef shoes and sneakers are good, however thongs and scuffs are not.
  • Shorts and t-shirt that you are prepared to get wet
  • Wide-brimmed hat
  • Water bottle
  • Packed lunch
  • Towel and snacks, wrapped in 2 plastic bags to keep them splash dry
  • Wetsuit, if you have one
  • A plastic bag for wet clothes
  • Light spray jacket, if you have one
  • A complete change of clothing, including warm clothing for afterwards.

The school will supply sunscreen, which will be as needed.
