Snowy Lessons - Rockpool Ramble Print E-mail

Rockpool RambleAs part of the environmental program at Snowy River Campus, all students undertake a half day of coastal exploration. Heading down to West Cape Conran, students delve into the intriguing world that exists within the intertidal zone.

With a Rockpool Ramble the highlight of the day, the students explore the many critters and creatures that reside along the picturesque East Gippsland coastline. Cavorting with crabs, selecting shells, playing with pippies and mixing with mini mussels, the students get up close and personal with the fascinating adaptations and behaviours of rocky shore wildlife. 

Collaborating information from research and observation, students develop a brief presentation on a topic related to their findings from the session. This practical class combines research and observation skills together with presentation skills and team work to develop knowledge and understanding of marine and coastal ecosystems and the organisms that reside along the shore.

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.
