Year 3 Visit Local Marine Park

Year 3 Visit Local Marine Park

As part of their topic ‘Our Tropical City’, Year 3 students recently enjoyed a field trip to the island of Sapi.  The first activity was to look at how city life affects the islands, with a particular focus on cleaning up the detritus  that had washed up onto the beaches. The students filled a total of fifteen bags with the rubbish from the shore. The second activity of the day was to explore the TARP marine park’s habitats, in order to understand the impact of pollution and other activities on the coral reefs. As well as learning important information to support this topic the students also had great fun. When asked, one of the students said: “It was the best school trip ever!”
