YEAR 7 and 8 CHINESE EXCURSION
YEAR 11-12 GEOGRAPHY EXCURSION
On Tuesday 17th May, the Year 11-12Geography class went on a field trip to Flying Fish Point. The purpose of the excursion was to record data and make observations of the erosion of the shore and the control methods which have been implemented to data. This information will complement class analysis of the coastal processes operating at Flying Fish point. This analysis and their field observations will enable the students to explain why the erosion is occurring at the Point and what can be done to control it in the future.
YEAR 10 RETREAT
Last week all of our students attended a successful Year 10 Retreat at Mareeba. The group was split into two groups to allow students a greater opportunity to engage with the program and experience real growth as they prepare for work experience at the end of this term, and in preparation for their SET Plans that they will undertake next term, to put them into a position to achieve success in their senior years of schooling. From all reports, both retreats were successful and I thank Mr Peter Dryden and the staff that gave of their time freely to attend, some of whom attended both retreats taking them away from their family and friends for an entire week.
