IB Students Excursion to the Bibbulmun Track on Saturday 19 May 2018
The Bibbulmun Track is one of WA’s iconic heritage sites, a walk trail that stretches from Kalamunda to Albany. The existence of the track would not be possible without the helping hands of many volunteers. Our IB Geography students have adopted a small section of the track (a 5km section about 120km south of Perth, near the intersection of Albany Highway and North Bannister Road).
During this excursion, we will be conducting maintenance work on our adopted section (cutting vegetation, checking sign marking and condition of the track and the campsite) and then, time and weather permitting, walking on to Boonering Hill.
This is a voluntary activity and forms part of a CAS project, so is also open to other IB students who do not take geography. Jaromir and Katharina will be accompanying the students.
