With no ex-hurricane in sight, Year 13 Geographers headed north west to Magilligan Field Centre to complete AS Level fieldwork.  The evening before fieldwork the students attended a skills and techniques lecture in QUB, though not before a quick pit stop at Belfast’s Continental Market!

Their fieldwork task involved collecting primary data from the Curly Burn river, a tributary of the river Roe. Students worked in pairs to measure river width, depth, discharge and load characteristics etc.  Upon completion, they returned to the field centre for a well-deserved lunch, to collate their data and to complete their fieldwork report (a requirement for the AS3 examination).

A big thank you to the students who all worked enthusiastically!

It is with extreme sadness that the Portadown College community pays tribute to our esteemed Principal Simon Harper who has passed away.
