L6 Field Trip to Portaferry

On Thursday 26th April, 2012, 56 boys and accompanying staff embarked on the annual field trip to Portaferry as part of their AS Biology studies. The poor weather failed to dampen spirits and the boys carried out their tasks with great enthusiasm. Specifically, they were investigating the distribution of seaweed, limpets & crabs on a rocky shore near Lee’s Wreck by means of a transect and shore profile. Once their work on the shore was completed, the boys were given a guided tour of the Exploris Aquarium.
