In Term 3, Year 7 students visited Cotter Dam for an excursion that arose as a collaboration between Integrated Humanities and Integrated Maths and Science. Students looked at the Cotter and surrounds from a number of perspectives, learning about and examining links between the history, geography, ecology, water chemistry and water management of the area.
