Year 12 Geography students have just completed three days of 'real Geography' at Aoraki Mt Cook. The trip brings to life the scale of interacting natural processes/natural features and the subsequent human impacts in this large natural environment. We wish to acknowledge all of those that helped to make this trip such a great success. This includes experts from the Department of Conservation, Mr Ross Ivey (Glentanner Station), Glacier Explorers, The Hermitage and Meridian Energy.
Regan Stokes, an English teacher at Burnside High School,
will be running free night classes in Te Reo Māori next term in
