We have had another full week as we now wrap up in Australia. We took a ferry to Moreton Island for an overnight experience of beach culture. A huge storm on Saturday created very windy and choppy sea which shaped our beach adventure. We stayed at Tangalooma Resort which serves as a dolphin education center. We learned about the wild dolphins they have been studying for decades, but sadly, we did not get to feed the wild dolphins as we hoped. The researchers surmised the rough sea kept the dolphins in deeper waters the night we visited.
Students also did more site research for their projects. Some students interviewed Australians on Moreton Island, another group visited the Queensland Multicultural Police Officer at Police Headquarters, while others headed out to Griffith University to interview a well-known Australian Professor of Special Education.
Yesterday students presented their final presentations. It was evident that each student learned an immense amount about Australian culture. Today is free for rest and last minute shopping, but this evening we will be participating the LUMINOUS Lantern Parade. Thousands of Queenslanders will attend, and Landmark College will proudly carry a banner to celebrate cultural diversity!
