Last week, the VCE 3+4 Outdoor Education students travelled to Queenscliff for their final camp. Here, they participated in a variety of activities to support their learning in the lead up to their exam.
Monday was a visit to the Marine Discovery Centre were students learnt about specific architectural features that make a sustainable and ‘green’ building design’. They then participated in a Mud Flats workshop exploring the seagrass beds of Swan Bay.
Tuesday was a trip with Sea All Dolphins out to Popes Eye and Chinaman’s Hat to swim with the seals. This was followed by a plastic recycle workshop where they created pens from bottle lids. After lunch students visited the Port Phillip Heads Marine National Park where they spoke with a Parks Victoria Ranger about management strategies, they use to build biodiversity in the park.
Wednesday the camp finished up with a hike at Edwards Point, key habitat for the endangered Orange Bellied parrot.
