Year 11 Geography students are currently studying the Extreme Natural Events topic.  We are focusing on processes, impacts and responses to earthquakes. Students had the opportunity to collect extra supporting case study material from the Quake City Exhibition in the Cashel Street Mall. A guest speaker hosted us at the complex and students trialled a number of the interactive displays. There was time for a quick CBD bus tour before returning to BHS.
