Geography students visit Muriwai Beach

Posted on March 25, 2020

NCEA Level 3 Geography students visited Muriwai Beach last week to collect data for their geographical investigation.

Favourable weather conditions allowed the students to undertake a range of geographical techniques including longshore drift measurements and beach profiles.  These techniques enabled the students to answer a hypothesis which was set in the classroom.

The students also enjoyed a walk around Otakamiro Point to view the gannet colony and tectonic landscape.
