    On Thursday and Friday (22-23 March) Mr. Rodkiss took over 100 students to visit the EPIC Center in the city.

    “EPIC gives Christchurch and New Zealand an opportunity to establish an innovation hub where leading high-growth resources and facilities will live together. 

    – Hon Steven Joyce, Minister for Economic Development and Science and Innovation

    Burnside students were able to look through and talk with some of New Zealand's leading game development software companies. Students were introduced to concepts like Agile software development, MVP, and iterative development within a gaming context.

    Geography Field trip
    by Bernadette Shaw - Wednesday, 21 March 2018, 2:17 PM
     



    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.
