The annual Year 12 Biology Camp is one of the highlights of the senior school curriculum. The students spend four days based at the 鈥 a World-Class Research and Teaching facility on the Great Barrier Reef.

‘On Thursday the 15th of February, the Year 12 Biology students travelled to Orpheus Island where they spent their days snorkelling and using transects and quadrats to collect data in a Fringing Coral Reef Flat Ecosystem. We connected with Professor Morgan Pratchett, a conservation ecologist based at James Cook University, Australia. The knowledge and skills that students acquired while working with Professor Morgan was fantastic.’
