Biology Field Trip

On Friday 22nd March, the Year 13 Biology students spent the day at the Oroua river in Feilding, for an ecology field trip which forms part of their NCEA Level 3 assessment programme. The students worked hard all day collecting data on the macro-invertebrate (insect larvae, water boatmen, leaches, snails) life in the micro-habitats of the river bed.

It’s always good to get out of the lab and do real data collecting activities, and what could be better on a beautiful summer’s day than to explore NZ’s natural environment? We all really enjoyed the day and finished off with ice cream from Feilding’s ice cream parlour!
