Geography in Charlestown

 

On Wednesday, Year 7 Geography students visited Charlestown to investigate the hypothesis: Charlestown is no longer a village for locals but is now a tourist resort.

Mr Buse explains: “We explored the historical value of the area and completed land use surveys, mapping of key buildings and even came up with our own ideas of how the derelict chapel is best used.”

“The students were amazed to find out there were many buildings geared up for tourists, but also started to explore the positive and negative impacts that they were having on the area. The research will then be used in class to complete a geographical report.”
