COASTWATCHERS 2012 has included a series of week long adventures for some lucky schools. Here's a glimpse of the Jordan River Learning Federation's trip to Recherche Bay with Andrew, the Tasmanian Land Conservancy, and the crew of Magic Miles.

This year Expedition Class and Skullbone are combined in an epic coastal trek around Tasmania that primary schools and high schools can join for different legs of the journey. An examination of marine debris in each area will be one of the main topics, as well as other issues relating to the coastal management and history in each of the areas visited. Schools are invited to join Andrew and supporting experts for a day on the coastal leg closest to them, and the four Skullbone schools (this year Scottsdale High, Smithton High, the Jordan River Learning Federation and Ogilvie High) will be joining Andrew for a week to visit some very remote coastal places.

Over 2,000 students will participate. Teacher curriculum guides and student activity books are available, and the information each school collects with Andrew will be added to an interactive online map to compare between areas. Interstate schools are also participating, with schools joining the program online from Darwin to Geraldton. See www.expeditionclass.com to learn more.
