VCE Biology Camp 2

Queenscliff - 11 March

 

Students from the Year 11 Biology class at the McGuire Campus travelled to Queenscliff on Thursdsay 11th March for an overnight excursion exploring the Bellarine Peninsula and learning about the organisms living on the rocky shores of Barwon Heads. 

 

 

The students participated in three sessions facilitated by the Marine Discovery Centre including rocky shore transect and quadrat sampling, a boat cruise and animal identification, and a laboratory investigation studying tube worms. Students had close encounters with fur seals, sting rays, seahorses, decorated crabs and many other weird and wonderful creatures occupying ecological niches in the Bellarine Peninsula.  

 

 

Twenty students attended the excursion along with Mr McIntyre and Miss Hunter as supervising staff. 

 

The highlights of the trip were time spent together at Queenscliff and Barwon Heads beaches, taking photos of the amazing and wonderful creatures and landscapes we saw and spending time together at our accommodation after a long day.

 
 

Special mention to the students who volunteered their expertise as DJ’s and/or photographers during the trip! Thank you to all the students that really made it a wonderful and enjoyable trip to be a part of.
