Two of the topics covered during Year 7 Science were Classification and Living Things. Year 7 students spent Monday 7 December at Healesville Sanctuary to compliment these units. A focus on endangered species and the environment drew attention to how we can all help reduce our impact on the environment and therefore minimise species extinction. Students attended an introductory session at the new Platypus Creek Arena, watched the Spirits of the Sky Bird Show, viewed the various animal enclosures then shared their ideas about minimising our impact on the environment. A very busy, productive and educational day was had by all.
