Year 9 Humanities students this week learnt about the landscapes, landforms, tourism and conservation of Antarctica.

Guest speaker Professor Luc Delriviere, a local Perth surgeon, gave the boys a real insight into aspects of the geography of Antarctica as well as information on wilderness tourism and conservation which are components of the Year 9 Geography course.

In 2018 he undertook an unsupported expedition to Antarctica to raise money and awareness for liver disease research. He and a team of adventurers spent 30 days pulling a 70kg sled of supplies through previously unexplored areas.

“Professor Delriviere shared magnificent images and an incredible story which combined geographic, humanitarian and philanthropic messages for the students,” commented Humanities Teacher, Jon Wyllie.
