As part of our Term 1 unit of work “Caring for our Environment”, students have studied the impact of littering and pollution on our beaches and marine life. We went on excursion to Bondi Beach to examine the wall murals and the advertising campaigns to promote environmental efforts to keep beaches clean.
In Year 9, students learn to apply Newtonian physics by experimenting with balanced and unbalanced forces. One such activity is using paper planes to investigate lift, thrust, drag and gravity. Year 9 are also experimenting with magnetic and electrostatic forces.
