Merri Creek Excursion Thursday 21st May

edweeklogoweblogoMerri Creek Management Committee (MCMC) received funding to run some activities for Education Week 2015 and we have been fortunate enough to have been asked to participate in the program they are offering.

All students in Grades 3-6 will be involved in the program.

We will be visiting Merri Creek at DeChene Reserve, Coburg on Thursday 21st of May.

Students will perform waterway experiments using mathematics to examine and calculate waterway conditions. Each group will undertake 3 hands-on sessions that explore a different aspect of creek health.

-flow; how fast the water runs and its impacts

-life; what the number of waterbugs can tell us is

-clarity; how clear the water is


We will be walking to DeChene Reserve. Departing school at 8:45 a.m. and returning at approximately 1:00 p.m

All students will need to be in full school uniform and bring along a coat and appropriate footwear for visiting the creek. Shelter will be available if it rains on the day. They will need to bring along a snack and water bottle.
