Coastal fieldwork

Year 11 Geography students recently toured the Bondi to Coogee coastal walk as part of their course fieldwork.

They researched the different types of waves, sand sediment and vegetation and compared beaches along the walk, complementing their growing theoretical understanding.

Student reflections:

Tully: “It was fascinating to learn how to use new equipment in an already familiar environment.”

Fadi: “I hadn’t been to some of the smaller Eastern Suburbs beaches before, and it was really interesting to see the differences between them.”

Madison: “I also enjoyed seeing some native wildlife in our own backyard.”
