Fun Day Out

Year 9 Heatley Stars had an end-of-term excursion last week to celebrate their hard work and commitment during Term 2.

The day began with a visit to the Rowes Bay Sustainability Centre, where students learnt more about the hidden secrets of Townsville’s wetlands and the positive impacts of sustainable living.

A tour of the wetlands and boardwalk gave the girls an insight into the native plants that live in the wetlands and the role healthy wetlands play in protecting our precious reefs.

They also had a look around the house and garden, which showed them how a sustainable home can help reduce your environmental impact, save water and energy, and use the natural resources on site.

After a great session at the Centre, our Stars finished the day off with some laser tag and ten-pin bowling!
