Geography Key Stage 3 Geology and Tourism Fieldtrip

On Wednesday 13th October 2016, 50 Year 10 students and their Geography teachers travelled to sunny Co.Antrim to complete an investigation of the formation of the Giant’s Causeway basalt stones and a tourism impact study of Portrush. In the morning the students were taken on a guided tour of the Giant’s Causeway visitors centre followed by a geology walking tour of the stones. After lunch the students completed a transect study of the services in the nearby settlement of Portrush. A very enjoyable day was had by all, with prizes being awarded to students based on a quiz and survey completed on the day. Well done everyone!
