On Wednesday 15 March students in 8B and 8E went to Hanging Rock to complete fieldwork for Geography. This was a culmination of their studies of landscapes, volcanic in particular. Their aim for the day was to investigate the land use management strategies in place at the rock and evaluate their effectiveness.
Students spent the day learning about the history of the rock and using skills they have developed in Geography classes in Year 7 and 8 such as line drawing, notetaking, mapping and effective decision making. Once back at school the students will learn new skills pertaining to writing geography fieldwork reports, which will be built upon over the coming years in geography.
