Students will study a variety of primates to further their understanding of primate, and hence human, evolution. This work will directly relate to Unit 4 Biology Outcome 2 and parts of the data gathered on the day will be directly assessed in the School Assessed Coursework for this Outcome.
Students need to meet their teachers outside the Royal Park Station entrance to the Zoo by 9.45 AM. Students will be dismissed from the zoo at 2.30PM.
Students will need to bring a pen and the notes provided prior to the excursion. Students will also need to bring their own lunch or money to purchase food from one of the kiosks available. Students will be permitted to bring a small, dark-coloured backpack rather than their larger schoolbag. Water bottles and sunscreen are strongly recommended.
The use of mobile phones is permitted on this excursion as the students will need to take photographs of the primates under observation.
In case of wet weather, students should bring an umbrella and/or their school spray jacket.
If a student is running late or will be unable to attend on the day they should call Mrs Latham, Mr LaBrooy or Mrs Ball.
Full School Uniform
Students will make their own way to and from the zoo. They should ensure they have sufficient funds on their Myki’s for this event.
