Snowy Lessons - Caving Print E-mail

CavingAs part of the Snowy River Campus outdoor program, each term we make the journey to the famous Buchan Caves approximately a 45 minute drive from the campus with each core group.

We get the opportunity to see active show caves to learn about stalactites, stalagmites and other cave features. The Fairy cave and Royal cave provide much natural and human history and many beautiful photo opportunities.

‘Wilsons cave’, the wild cave provides students with opportunities to get out of their comfort zones and work together to accomplish physical and mental challenges. Students are geared up with overalls, helmets and head torches for the challenge. Students spend about 1 hour underground climbing through small spaces, coming face to face with mud and bats while exploring the cave system as a team.

The day is a highlight for many students; being one of their favourite days of the term. Caving provides an exciting, rewarding and challenging learning environment.

School For Student Leadership

School for Student Leadership is a Victorian Department of Education and Training (DET) initiative offering a unique residential education experience for year nine students. The curriculum focuses on personal development and team learning projects sourced from students' home regions. There are three campuses in iconic locations across Victoria. The Alpine School Campus is located at Dinner Plain in the Victorian Alps. Snowy River Campus is near the mouth of the Snowy River at Marlo in east Gippsland. The third site is adjacent to Mount Noorat near Camperdown in Victoria’s Western District, and is called Gnurad-Gundidj. After consultation with the local aboriginal community, this name represents both the indigenous name of the local area and an interpretation of the statement "belonging to this place".

Our school community acknowledges the Gunaikurnai, Bidawel and Gundijmara people as the traditional custodians of the land upon which our school campuses are built. We pay our respects to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, their Elders past and present, and especially whose children attend our school.
