Y11 IGCSE Geography Residential to Mui Ne

The Geography Department firmly believe that learning outside of the classroom plays a fundamental role in our secondary students building a deeper understanding and a stronger connection with the world around them, along with the challenges and possibilities that they may impact their lives and communities in the future.  Our recent IGCSE residential to Mui Ne proved this.

This term, Ms Archer, Mrs Cowen, Mr Cowen and myself had the pleasure of taking the Year 11 IGCSE geographers on a geographical fieldwork expedition to Mui Ne. On this adventure, the students were able to collect huge amounts of river and coastal data to help them with their IGCSE “Alternative to Coursework” paper, which they will be sitting this coming June. In addition to this, the students gained valuable contextual knowledge in relation to coasts, rivers and tourism which will ensure they are able to maximise their potential in their Geographical Themes IGCSE paper. 

The students worked incredibly hard over the 3 days and the Geography department would like to congratulate them on the efforts and positive attitudes they displayed over the course of the fieldwork expedition. In addition to working in the field during the day, the students applied their newfound skills and data in late evening presentation sessions in the hotel conference room. The impressive mental and physical stamina of our students clearly demonstrated by the staff hearing no complaints whatsoever, despite working on their data presentation beyond 9pm!  They certainly deserved their free time after the late evening work session!

The nature of these trips encourages students to work collaboratively as independent groups, think critically and be open-minded as they reflect upon a range of contemporary tourism issues and river/coast theory. It was not only a delight to see the students rise to this challenge during the trip, but also how their mindset has changed back in the classroom. The quality of work they produced was truly amazing.  

I would like to thank the parents for supporting the department in running this trip, and for all the time that our brilliant staff gave up to provide this opportunity for our geographers.

Stuart Elliott, Trip Leader
