Environmental Study Insights

During a recent excursion to the Kenwyn River, 3rd Year geography pupils had the opportunity to apply their classroom knowledge in a practical setting. Over two days, all 3rd Years participated in their river studies at three different locations along the Kenwyn.

Pupils measured the width and depth of a river transect and used an orange to gauge velocity, showcasing impressive dexterity to prevent the fruit from being swept away by swifter currents. This process was repeated at two additional sites, followed by thorough evaluation and analysis to draw meaningful conclusions from their observations.

These hands-on experiences serve as invaluable supplements to classroom learning, fostering a deeper understanding of the subject matter. A huge thank you to our Head of Geography, Mrs. Wormald, and the dedicated staff whose efforts made this enriching experience possible.
