Water Journey

Today 1B had Water Journey; this is when we go down to the Victoria River and conduct tests to ascertain whether or not the water in the river is clean.

We discovered in our “Journey” that the Cobungra section of the Victoria River is indeed quite clean and has low levels of salt and acids ECT. After we had conducted tests we tried to catch bugs so as to identify whether or not the river was supporting life. We caught a variety of Insects therefore informing us that it was indeed quite vibrant with being, we then went about learning of the effects of certain industries and recreational activities  possible effects on river systems.

After all this we had a barbeque and went back to school, all in all the day was most enjoyable and I would personally give it an 8/10.
