Maclean High students visit Heron Island

Thirty six students from Year 10 and 4 staff recently visited Heron Island.

The five island days and nights were filled with amazing and educational experiences.

The most memorable included: Early morning and afternoon harbour snorkels, snorkelling in front of the resort and afternoon swims on North Beach; they also snorkelled from the research boat, “Chromis”.  The students observed and swam with a plethora of marine life; adult turtles laying above the high tide zone, turtles, white tip and black tip reef sharks, sting rays, shovel nose sharks, clams, sea cucumbers and star fish…..just to mention a few.

This year was another fun and successful excursion with all involved enjoying their time on the island.
