COMMUNITY NEWS & EVENTS
80 year 8 students and 6 staff rocked on Monday at the Glasshouse Mountains. The excursion began at Hanson Quarry which was much soggier than usual after 120 mls of rain, but manager Craig Stevens still managed to blow our minds talking about the ignimbrite rock that has been excavated there for 22 years so far. We were glad that our vehicles do not cost $1m, and that our tyres are not $10,000 each. With only a 2% silica content, Glasshouse material was used to line the Clem 7 tunnel because it does not burn.
After the quarry and a short stop at the Glasshouse Mountains information centre, we walked around Mount Tibrogargan and enjoyed the National Park beauty. It was a terrific day with lovely sunshine and fabulous students. St Eugene students are excellent and received thanks from Mr Stevens for being such a co-operative group. See photos on the front of this week's newsletter.
