On Tuesday the 8th of April, 53 year 10 students were able to travel to Newcastle University on a bus for a tour of the Campus and got to experience a sample of what uni life is like. We left school in the morning and were met by two student ambassadors at the front of the uni, where they boarded the bus and pointed out different areas of the campus as we drove around, allowing us to truly understand the huge scale of Newcastle Uni. We were then able to embark on a walking tour of different sections of the uni, and listen to a presentation in a lecture theatre, allowing us to get a closer look of what life would be like studying at Newcastle Uni. Once many of us got some food at the establishments Newcastle Uni had to offer, we boarded the bus and headed back to school, full of new knowledge and excitement about the opportunities we now know Newcastle Uni has to offer. We would like to thank Mrs Osborne for organising this excursion and giving us this opportunity, as well as Ms Patterson for also accompanying us on the day.

On the 27th March, 2014 students of Year 10 Geography participated in a coastal management excursion to Redhead beach. With the inclement weather not all tasks were completed but students did gain knowledge and hands on experience how to calculate wave times, effects of erosion and creating transects that was run by the Awabakal Environmental Education Office.
