On Mayne Island, on a fine Wednesday in May, students explored tidal pools and local history guided by teachers Megan Cameron and Fiona Morrison.

As a school we spent the afternoon at Georgina Point with Rob Underhill from Mayne Conservancy and Annette Witteman, Artist in the School. We engaged in exploring the tidal pools and painting the lighthouse with watercolours.
