Year 11 Tourism Students Entering Capricorn Caves

14/03/2013
YEAR 11 TOURISM STUDENTS ENTERING CAPRICORN CAVES
 
Year 11 Tourism students were given an insight into the workings of an effective tourism operation when they visited the Capricorn Caves last week. After experiencing firsthand the intrigues of the caves (20 000 bats and all), they were given a talk by the Caves manager Amanda, on how to successfully manage and operate a popular tourist business. Students found the talk informative especially noting how many national tourism awards the Caves have won.
Term Overview
Year 7s have studied how not to get lost (studying mapping) while Year 8s have learnt how to successfully torture people Medieval style. Year 9s understand why Asian trade is so important to local industries and Year 10s know that the soldiers sent to fight along the Kokoda Track were not really there to play cricket. 
 
Our senior students have settled in for hard work and large assignments; which brings me to the current situation. Students in the Social Sciences are currently undertaking assessment pieces including exams and assignments.
This will be an opportune time for caregivers to make sure that their child is on track to complete a successful term.
