On Tuesday, 11 May the year 13 Geography students got close to nature whilst studying waves, weather, and beach processes at Muriwai.
Experiencing the outdoors firsthand is an essential part of NCEA Geography research. After conducting longshore drift experiments on the beach, we walked up onto the headland, Otakamiro Point, where we were able to identify erosional landforms such as blowholes, stacks, and wave-cut platforms. We also observed the few Gannets left behind for the winter. For a few of our students, this was their first time at Muriwai.
