Year 9/10 Geography trip to Ba Vi National Park 2017

20 January 2017

Last weekend a selection of Year 9 and 10 students visited Ba Vi National Park in order to strengthen their understanding of river systems and practise many of the skills they will need when they do their IGCSE Geography coursework in Year 11.  Here is an account of the trip from Audrey in Year 10.

The Year 9/10 Geography trip was a very interesting and educational time! We started our journey to Ba Vi in the morning, with muted but excited chatter about the upcoming adventure that was ahead of us. Once we got to our destination, we unpacked and had some lunch. Right after that was the event that everyone was looking forward to most: venturing forth into the rivers of Ba Vi. Everyone was waddling awkwardly with their wellington boots, which added the fun of the trip. With our equipment in hand, we measured all sorts of things – width/depth of the river, how big the rocks were, the velocity of the river – all in order to see if Bradshaw’s theory about rivers was correct. In the evening, when we were cleaned up and our bellies full of dinner (and tons of snacks), we started to plot out how we were going to represent our data through graphs. We soon finished everything up with conclusions and were taught how to make graphs that would help aid our reasoning.

On the way back to Hanoi, I realised how this trip had helped me a lot with what to expect in my upcoming IGCSE Geography coursework and how to do it accurately. The Geography Department had given us a wonderful opportunity to explore what Geography is like in the ‘real-world’ – and I hope future Geographers from British International School  Hanoi will take on this chance to see it for themselves!
