Ricketts Point Excursion

8C, 8D, and 8E spent today down at Ricketts Point, where they participated in snorkeling, rock rambling and a biodiversity coastal walk. The water was warm, visibility was excellent and students were able to see many marine organism in their native habitats. During the rock ramble, students carried out quadrat sampling of the exposed reef and rockpools. On the coastal trail, students saw the effect of erosion on the sandstone cliffs and got to taste some native bush food. We were also joined by two Environmental Scientists from the CSIRO who shared their knowledge and expertise with the students. Overall it was a fantastic day!!
