Year 8 Immigration and Urbanisation Excursion

As part of the Year 8 current Encounter study involving Migration and Urbanisation, students visited the Southbank precinct of the city in order to study how urbanisation has affected Melbourne.

IMG_4849IMG_4850IMG_4855Students walked around the area completing research tasks on the liveability of the Southbank and north banks of the Yarra River.

IMG_4835The highlight of the day was to place an old Braemar lock on the walk bridge across the Yarra.
