14 May 20 by Cranbrook Communications
Congratulations to Year 12 Geography students, Archie Hyles and Ned Hendersen who have placed 1st and 2nd respectively against hundreds of students across NSW and the ACT in the 2019 Arthur Phillip Fieldwork Competition for their Senior Geography Investigative Projects.
Archie Hyles’ project addressed the issue of to what extent has drought effected the mental wellbeing of people living in and around Jugiong. View Archie's documentary below.
And Ned’s project was a comparative study between physical and human impacts of varying levels of light pollution in the Sydney CBD and rural areas. View Ned's documentary below.
The Geography Teachers’ Association of NSW/ACT (GTA NSW/ACT) organises this annual competition for students and schools to foster an enthusiasm for Geography through engagement and rewards. The emphasis of the competition is the use of fieldwork and the gathering of primary and secondary data as core skills in students’ study of Geography.
Commenting on their achievements, Matthew Carroll, Cranbrook’s Head of Geography said “I am really proud of Archie and Ned’s success. They have worked so hard on their projects and this award recognises, and is a celebration of, their diligence.”
