Year 12 Earth & Environmental Science Excursion

The Year 12 ATAR Earth & Environmental Science students investigated the metamorphic rocks of the Western Gneiss Terrane last week at the picturesque Bells Rapids Park, where the Swan River crosses the Darling Escarpment. The investigation included structural and geological mapping, geological modelling and interpretation of a complex geological sequence. The experience was a highlight of Term 1 and the team displayed excellent enthusiasm and geological skill. The experience allowed each student to apply all the theory that they have learned in class to a fantastic field environment. Well done to our young geologists!
