Pearson Island Sea Kayaking Trip

In April a group of Westminster Staff and Old Scholars visited the remote and ruggedly beautiful Pearson Island group, seventy kilometres out from Elliston on the wild western side of the Eyre Peninsula.

Former Outdoor Education Trainees Fraser Darcy ('12), Sam Ferguson ('10), and Will Mildren ('09) were accompanied by Geoff McCaul and myself to kayak out to these rarely visited Isles, that are teeming with native flora and fauna, untouched by introduced species or other threats.

Visiting the islands is akin to stepping back in time to what our wonderful landscapes used to be like.

The three Year 12 Outdoor Education classes will be undertaking a coastal sea kayaking trip later in the term, and will acquire the skills to undertake these journeys in the future.
