Portadown College’s Year 11 Geography students travelled to Newcastle, County Down on 4th October.

In class, students had been studying the processes that are at work on the coast (erosion, transportation and deposition) and the results of such processes (destruction of the coast and the human attempt to manage such destruction).

In Newcastle, pupils were tasked with completing a scavenger hunt. They had to search for and take photographs showing evidence of coastal erosion, transportation, deposition, destruction to the coast and human management.

When back in class, pupils developed their teamwork, creativity and oral presentation skills by creating a PowerPoint presentation.
