School Trips

Year 9 Ecology Day - Manly Beach

Despite overcast conditions and the occasional sprinkle of rain, the Year 9 learners ventured to Manly beach to complete activities as part of the Science Department Ecology Day.  Learners worked in groups to demonstrate understanding of food chains, energy flow and trophic levels in the marine communities.  A major focus was collecting data for the marine metre square citizen scientist project (www.mm2.net.nz) that evaluates the health of New Zealand's intertidal ecosystems. 

Thank you to all the parent helpers who came down and supervised the learners.  A special thanks to Steve from Shakespeare Regional Park, who spoke to all the learners in the auditorium about Auckland Council's efforts to eradicate introduced pest species from the park.
