8A, 8B and 8E @ Ricketts Point

Today it was 8A, 8B and 8E’s turn 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. 8E, through the digging efforts of Caitlyn, Naila and Josh, also found the seepage fed fresh water spring at the foot of the sea cliffs. Today we were joined again by a Felix from the CSIRO (also a former student of the College) who shared his knowledge and expertise with the students. Overall it was an amazing day!!
