On 19-20 May, the Year 12 Geography class went on an overnight field trip to the Hunter Valley. The excursion was an exciting culmination of our work on Urban Dynamics (for which we are studying Cessnock) and Productive Activity (for which we are studying Viticulture).
We had very busy two days, visiting the local council as well as four different vineyards and winemaking facilities. Students were challenged to think about traditional viticulture practices and compare them with modern mechanised techniques. We particularly enjoyed the presentation by Ms Liz Riley, an experienced private viticulturist, who opened up a whole range of vocational outcomes for students with an interest in this area.
Praise God for the blessing of learning in such a wonderful place!
