Year 14 Geography  study of  sustainable settlements.

As part of the unit of study of sustainable elements, students examine the use of leisure areas, sports facilities, open space and urban parks in creating sustainable settlements.  The geography lesson this Friday was delivered in Bachelors Walk, our own urban park.

Students examined the importance of open spaces for providing areas for children to play, supporting wildlife in urban areas, allowing people to have a daily experience of nature and promoting biodiversity education.

The lesson emphasised to students that Geography is all around us and extremely relevant today!

Unless you have already been contacted by the College, all new Year 11 students should be able to study their chosen subjects. Any student wishing to amend subject choices can post a private message for Mrs McGuinness on the subject choice assignment or send an email to info@pc.portadown.ni.sch.uk.
