Geography Latest News

Year 10 students recently took part in a field trip to the Mournes

Year 10 Geography students having fun in the challenging physical environment of the Mourne Mountains.

Scrambling between the granite boulders left behind by a retreating glacier thousands of years ago. Just one of the challenges during the ICD Geography Residential.

Wet bouldering on the Rocky River in the Mournes.

Chloe O’Neill 8C winner

Turlough Quinn 8I winner

Gregory Tennyson 8G winner


Thank you to all the students who entered the competition.

 

 

Our annual CEIAG event looking at a variety of jobs linked to Geography was held on the 11 November. This was a great opportunity for our Year 10 to 14 Geography students to see the relevance of their geographical skills and knowledge in a range of different professions.

We were really delighted with our range of guest speakers this year and would like to extend our thanks to:

  • Cecilia Daly Weather Broadcaster with the BBC
  • Dr Kirstin Lemon, Environment & Hazards Team Leader with the Geological Survey of NI (guest geologist on the BBC ‘Riverland’ Series in Sept)
  • Ryan Sommerville a statistician with NISRA (Northern Ireland Statistics & Research Agency)

 

Congratulations to Jamie McCann 9C who was the overall winner of the Year 9 Geography Competition in September. His detailed research project on Lough Neagh was a very worthy winner.
Congratulations also to Adele Tate who gained first place in 9I and also to Mollie-Rose Fox, Alanna Kirkland and Lee Irvine who were joint first place in 9G. Well done to all who participated.’ More Photos below
