Year 9 – Humanities
In 2016 students in Year 9 undertook an excursion to Hanging Rock, a State Park in the North West of Victoria. Students were there to examine the Geographical features of the area, such as the large Granite Outcrops and the native vegetation of the region. Students collected data and photographic evidence to support their Portfolio Task.
Year 7 Shanklands Gardens
Students in Year 7 undertake their first excursion to Shankland Gardens, which is within walking distance to our school. Students examine how people use the park, look at the features of the park and explore how the gardens play a critical part of the water management in the local area. Students examine how water flow from the street, into the storm pipes and ends up in Shankland Garden, and all the steps that it goes through before ending up in the ocean.
