MEDICAL EMERGENCY

Students will complete both a basic and advanced medical emergency course, with special attention given to emergencies in an outdoors environment and less-accessible locations. This will be a very practical orientated course with scenarios applied closely resembling real-life situations. The medical emergency course will be a fun but at times extremely serious section of the course. Students who fail this course will be required to rewrite.

As part of the Adventure and Eco-Tourism module, students will be tackling the more extreme side of sporting disciplines from rock climbing, and mountain biking, white water rafting, and practical pistol shooting. 
 

In action, each of these sports are a physical endeavour, but in achieving the goal students will be faced with overcoming a state of mind, conquering their fears, and developing a passion for life through adventure. 

Physical fitness program includes the following disciplines that are used to build general functional fitness and strength:

The physical program provides a critical role in the development of character and self belief in the young men. We are confident that Quest will provide the foundation for lifelong habits of fitness and health and also an enjoyment of various adventure sports.
