Year 13 Biology Field Trip 2012

Year 13 students visited the rocky shore near Portaferry on Thursday 20th September to complete field and coursework.  They used ecological sampling techniques to study the distribution of seaweed species.  Following the hard work in the morning we visited the Exploris Aquarium for guided tours.  It was an enjoyable experience and everyone learnt a great deal about the diversity of marine life in Strangford Lough.  All of the boys and staff seemed to thoroughly enjoy the time out of the classroom and they were all relieved that the weather stayed fine!
