Geography Field Trip
Leaving Certificate Geographical Investigation 2014-2015
This year Leaving Certificate Geography students did their Geographical Investigation at the Easkey River, Co. Sligo. This investigation is worth 20% of their Leaving Cert Geography grade and involved looking at the erosive powers of the river so as to compare erosion in the upper course and middle course of the river. Students got hands on experience using all the different Geography field study equipment and collected data on the river’s width, depth, velocity, discharge and particle size. Students will now write up their investigation in the classroom. Students really enjoyed the day and getting to experience Geography in the great outdoors.
