Port Of Geelong Tour

Port Of Geelong Tour

On the 5th of May, the Year 11 VCAL classes went on a boat around the Port of Geelong where the history of the Port was explained, and we had the opportunity to see the Port from the water – which was new to most of us!

The boat ride was an eventful experience for both boat crew, teachers and students and seeing the ships up close was quite daunting.

After the boat trip, we walked to Royal Geelong Yacht Club for a brief presentation about the history of how Geelong became one of the biggest ports in Victoria, and of the different job opportunities available working in, and around the Port of Geelong. Overall, we had a lot of fun and enjoyed the experience of being out on the water.

Thanks to Mr Martschinke and Ms Purnell for taking us out for Work Related Skills.
