Thursday the year 11 Aquatic Practices jarjums, along with Miss Maja and Mr Blade, experienced a day of fishing and cultural learning on Stradbroke Island under the guidance of Andrew Watego from Pulan Pulan Fisheries. It was a fantastic day with everyone catching at least one fish! We will be going out for a second day next Thursday, so stay tuned for more photos of our adventures! #LearningOutsideTheClassroom #country #excellenceineducation  #careers
