Year Thirteen Geography Fieldtrip to Magilligan Field Centre

On Thursday 12th and Friday 13th October twenty seven Grosvenor pupils along with staff members Mr Young, Mrs Rea and Miss Knox made the lengthy but worthwhile journey to Magilligan Field Centre, where they undertook important fieldwork necessary to the completion of their AS studies. 

On Thursday 12th the pupils’ fieldwork was carried out on Umbra Nature Reserve, with pupils studying a psammosere by collecting data along a transect, from the youngest to the oldest dunes. The following day, meanwhile, saw students complete a questionnaire in Coleraine - assessing the impact of out-of-town shopping centres on Coleraine’s town centre, as a necessary requirement of their AS3 examination.

Many thanks to the ever-helpful members of staff at Magilligan for their continued assistance – in particular Mr Michael Cross who never fails to disappoint through the help and expertise that he so willingly provides. Compliments also to the pupils who were exemplary in their conduct and interest: we now look forward to their diligence being ultimately rewarded when final AS examination results are published next August.
