Aoraki/Mt. Cook treated the Year 12 Geography students to three days of exceptional weather this year! This trip rounded off a busy term for the Geography Department.
Students focused on working through the research process for their NCEA studies. The main aim was to research the extent of human impacts in the Mackenzie basin and Mt. Cook National Park.
Highlights of the trip included working with the Department of Conservation, visiting the Sir Edmund Hilary centre, Glentanner Station seminar, Kea Point walk, Hooker Valley walk and the Glacier Explorers boat tour. Thanks to staff and students for making this such a memorable trip.
