Serendip Sanctuary - Year 7
Last week, the Year 7 students visited Serendip Sanctuary as part of their Science program.
This is one of the highlights of the semester. Students had the opportunity to make links between classroom theory and the real world. The trip included a nature walk, guided by the park rangers, where students were able to explore indigenous but threatened habitats.
One group was lucky enough to see two Brolga birds engaged in their daily mating dance. The couple have performed this dance to each other every day for the 31 years they have been together! The students also participated in some hands-on learning, investigating the invertebrate life in the pond.
Overall, the trip was a great success and the students will take away a deeper understanding of their local environment.
