Byron Bay – Historical Walk – 26 February 21

Historical Walk

This morning the school went on an excursion along the coast to learn about the history of Byron Bay.  They had to follow a map which took them to some locations.  At the location there was a QR code which led to information about the spot they were on.  Fio, and others pictured, got to the Pass and had to cross through water to get to the QR code location – the water was us to her hip!  Bonus points for not giving up!  They returned to the school and discussed what they found out about the Bay.

Check out the Byron Bay Historical Trail here!

Some information they found was that the Pass was a refuge (shelter) for boats in storms and hurricanes, and that it was a fishing base in 1926.  They farmed prawns there, too.

Thanks Kathleen for organising such a great outing where the students can enjoy the sunshine and listen to / read the English language together.
