Year 12 Higher Level Geography - Tourism in Extreme Environments

Year 12 Higher Level geographers have been investigating how human activity can impact extreme environments. They have specifically looked at the how tourism can be utilised in hot and cold areas. To do this they focused on the town of Chamonix and the city of Dubai. To make the process more exciting the group were asked to create a presentation that would convince their teacher to buy a holiday home in one of the areas. The presentations that were created were interesting and they provoked a lively discussion. Well done Dubai.

The Business students researched the benefits of a student lounge, proposed a design with furniture and a room layout, and presented their ideas to school administrators. We hope to have a relaxing and beautiful space in the next year.
