About 2 weeks ago a dead grey whale washed up on shore at East Sooke Park, about 20 minutes away from campus. Our magnificent Marine Science teacher, Laura Verhegge, took us on a field trip to see it and learn about marine mammals up close and personal. Pearson College is one of the very few (if not the only) place in the world where Marine Science is an official IB science course (Laura developed the curriculum). It's a wonderful class full of hands on learning in this unique environment.
