Year 11 Geography students visit Numinbah Valley

On Thursday 4th to Friday 5th May, the Year 11 Geography class headed to Numinbah Valley to take part in the annual camp. The students visited a number of places and took data for their upcoming assessment in the Managing Catchments unit. They looked at the importance of catchment management both environmentally, socially, economically and politically.

The students enjoyed visiting the three sections of the river over the two days; Upper, including the World Heritage Listed Natural Arch and the famous glow worm caves, and the Hinze Dam, Middle, Wheedon’s Crossing and Lower, visiting the observation desk of Q1 and the spit where the Nerang River enters the sea. It was a busy and fun-filled two days, finishing with the traditional fish and chips at the spit. The two days were run in conjunction with the staff at the Numinbah Valley Environmental Education Centre.
