Senior School News
This term, Year 8 Science students have been engaged in learning about Geological changes in our world. In particular, students have investigated the topics of weathering and erosion and seen how Scientists use this information to benefit society. 8S Science took the opportunity to add to their knowledge when they embarked on a geological walk in the local Shellharbour area. The walk was skillfully led by Mr Sven Barter who is Head of Science at the College and has particular interest and expertise in Earth and Environmental Science. Students were shown examples of different types of weathering and were specifically encouraged to utilise the observable evidence to distinguish between them. An exciting part of the walk was where students could observe signs of a river that is thought to be 260 million years old. The evidence was visible because it was exposed by works during the construction of the new highway. Other observed sites included evidence of a previous earthquake in the region and signs of an ice age.
