Senior Geography Students in the Field
Senior Geography classes have taken to the field in recent weeks to collect data which will be used to form recommendations for future management of the issues they have been investigating.
Visiting Port Noarlunga, the Year 10 students observed the impacts of cliff erosion on the local environment. Seeking to decide whether coastal management practices reflected an understanding of natural coastal processes, the students had a great time in beautiful weather and even saw a number of dolphins swimming close to shore.
Year 11 Geography students visited Belair National Park to map and assess the level of bushfire risk in the area. Students undertook their own assessment and analysis in what was a great day of outdoor learning.
Brownhill Creek was the destination for the Year 12s who undertook a field investigation in preparation for their own individual field studies which form a major assessment task. Despite long periods without any rain, the students managed to find a puddle of water that we could use to test water quality.
It is great to see students applying what they are learning in real world situations outside the classroom and we look forward to hearing what is next for our budding Geographers!
