The Middle School Representations of Women class is studying a unit investigating a issues faced by women in both our local and global communities. 

As part of this unit, St Kilda Mums has kindly offered to host us the class for a day to learn about the programs and services they offer to women in the local community.  

In light of this, the class is running a drive to collect urgent and essential resources to donate to St Kilda Mums on behalf of Elwood College.  

For their field trip for Unit 1 Area of Study 3, the Year 11 Biology class visited Pearce’s Beach near Rye. 

At the beach, they observed the populations and trends in populations of different plants and animals over three tidal zones using quadrats and transect lines.
