The Year 12 Geography classes had a great time experiencing
physical and human geography in the field at the Mackenzie Basin
and Aoraki Mt. Cook.
As part of the large natural environment topic - students learn
about glacial,climatic,tectonic and vegetation processes and
consequently, the landforms. Furthermore, geographers factor in
the change caused by humans. Students consider the impacts of
activities such as farming, tourism, recreation, settlement and
hydro-electricity production in the region.
Highlights of the trip included walking the full Hooker Valley
track and the 'Glacier Explorers' boat excursion.
Thanks to the accompanying staff and students for making this
such a fun and rewarding experience! Huge thanks also to all of
the experts that helped us in the field.
