Our Year 11 Biology class went on a combined schools camp to Stradbroke Island in the last week of Term 3. Students joined other biology classes from Nambour Christian College and Jubilee College to explore the island and investigate some of its beautiful habitats.
We dug our hearts out on the tidal mudflats to find small organisms, climbed sand dunes collecting data on plants and their living conditions, canoed through mangroves and explored areas affected by bushfires to investigate regeneration.
The best part of biology camp was the food; the wonderful staff of Seashells Café at Amity Point provided all our meals, which were very welcome after a long day of fieldwork.
Overall, our students were given a unique opportunity to mix with other biology students and staff and experience what it is like to apply biology skills in real life situations. We look forward to the experience next year.
