Rest Day - Fishing and Tennis Print E-mail
Written by Shannon, Snowy Student Term 1 2010   

One of our wacky out rested days Today was really fun we all had a rest day.  11 of us went fishing in the morning and 11 went to the tennis courts in Marlo in the afternoon and at 4 pm we have a HD TV call from the Dinner Plain Campus which is from one of the other schools for leadership.

The 11 students that went to fishing caught about 7 fish but they were too small to keep so we threw them back.  3 of the fish were skippies, 3 flat heads and 1 finger print. I caught one flat head and the finger print, I was the only one who caught 2.  It was so cool, I was multitasking. I was swimming as well as fishing.  When we got back from fishing nearly everyone was ‘emoed’ up, their hair was done and so was their makeup, they ‘emoed’ me up as well. 

After we had lunch the 11 students that wanted to go to Marlo to play tennis did.  It was fun, I can’t play tennis but I had a go. It was so funny; I kept hitting the ball to the right side of the court. We saw Ms. Howards’ dogs, they are so cute. That brightened my day as I have not seen my puppy. I can’t see him till parents visiting weekend =) We stayed at tennis til 4.  When we all came back to SRC some of us raced to the HD TV call with Dinner Plain. It was awesome. After the HD TV call we had dearr ( drop everything and read, reflect), after ate tea and then went to kick the football around. For evening class we did introduction to costal environments that was quite fun and very interesting. We talked about our costal 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 four 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 fourth and newest campus, currently known as the Don Valley Campus is located at Don Valley, Yarra Ranges.
Our school community acknowledges the Gunaikurnai and Monero-Ngarigo people as the traditional custodians of the land upon which our school campus is 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.
