Year 10 Geography: Port Melbourne Field Trip

On Wednesday 4 May, Year 10 Geography students and teachers Amy Lee, Louis Turner, and student teacher Connor Millsom travelled from St Albans to Port Melbourne to investigate environmental change on Melbourne’s coastline. We were a bit worried that it was going to be rainy but luckily it turned out to be a beautiful, if chilly, day.

Students took part in a range of fieldwork activities, such as field sketching, and surveying people to gather data. They were able to identify some of the issues that Port Melbourne faces, and discuss what problems may occur in the future due to climate change and global warming. They discovered some of the management strategies that are currently being used there, and considered how Port Melbourne is used by the people who live, work, and visit the area.

We finished up with a delicious lunch at Melbourne Central before returning to St Albans.
