On Thursday 10th June, the Year 11 Geography class were given a firsthand experience of what university study is like, when they participated in a geography workshop run by Adelaide University’s Arts faculty. Throughout the workshop students were asked to reflect on the role geography plays in identifying issues within communities and the environment and how geography can provide solutions to these issues through active research and fieldwork. The Workshops introduced concepts of global environmental change, and how individual actions can impact humanity. They debated how public policy is created and the effect it has on our everyday lives.

Students were encouraged to see university studies as a lifelong commitment to learning and as a means of promoting change both for their future selves and for society.
