The IELTS Prep. class went on a bush walk as part of an environmental studies unit. During the walk they had an opportunity to observe both the water and carbon cycles in details which they later were required to draw diagrammatically and write about as required as an IELTS writing task. On the walk students also had an opportunity to discuss and learn about native flora and fauna. They were fortunate enough to see turtles, dolphins, sea eagles (brahminy kites), many bush turkeys and perfect waves. The ‘green classroom’ proved very beneficial for learning, interaction and thought processes.
