Geography Port Hills field trip
by Bernadette Shaw - Monday, 23 March 2015, 10:19 AM

Year 11 Geography students have been developing their spatial awareness by studying the links between natural and cultural environments in our local surrounds.  In Lyttelton students conducted field observations on the impacts of the Canterbury earthquake and the future of the Lyttelton Port Development. At the top of the Christchurch Gondola we were treated to amazing views! Here students were able to develop a range of skills, including mapping, filed sketching, collecting photographic evidence and developing understanding of the key Geographic concepts. At Corsair Bay students collaborated in groups, building 3D islands to scale.

To Mr Bond’s class……don’t worry you have not been forgotten. We are just awaiting the perfect weather window!!

Our Senior lawn bowls students Emma Lloyd, Jake Bevan  and Jake Lafaele placed 1st and 3rd= in the Canterbury Secondary School Lawn Bowls tournament.  This led to the students being asked to represent NZ at the WW1 centenary celebrations at the Burnside Bowls Club.
The request was also made that if we had a school choir would they be able to sing. Of course this was an amazing opportunity for the BHS Senior Chorale - which is an audition only choir that has been well-represented in competitions throughout NZ - and they quickly learnt the national anthems for both Australia and NZ in 4-part harmony. The feedback from the chairman of the Canterbury RSA was that it was "the best rendition of the Australian National Anthem" that he had ever heard outside of Australia.
