Geography Trip To Muriwai

Collecting data and a surprise viewing of baby seals made this a fantastic day trip.

On Monday 22nd, the Year 13 Geography class went on a trip to Muriwai. The purpose of this trip was to collect data for their research assessment and observe the natural processes that they will discuss in their external exam.

The students were eager to commence their data collection which involved a lot of group collaboration and patience. We managed to avoid the lunchtime rain by hiding in the vans.
Our walk out to the end of Otakamiro Point was met with the familiar stench caused by the Gannet colony, but also an amazing view of our coastal processes in action. We then went to Maukatia (formally Māori) Bay where we collected more data and were pleasantly surprised by 3 baby seals warming themselves on the rocks.
