1A Expo Prep Print E-mail
Written by Staff   

BradenOn Monday the 15th of February 2010 1A is going on an overnight hike.
But before that we had to get prepared. We had to get into our cooking groups and get a trangia, get into our sleeping groups and get our tent and sleeping equipment and finally we had to get all hiking packs. After all that we had to go inside and get our clothes, toiletries, medication and other essentials which that morning had already been packed into big orange garbage bags. We had to then walk all that over to the big sheds and be taught how to pack a hiking bag. It’s a very complicated procedure. After about an hour or more we went inside for a well deserved lunch break. After our well deserved break we had to assign food for people to carry. Because I had the trangia I had to carry the tomatoes and capsicum, along with the milk powder and my breakfast.  I realised that the trangia (which is a small cooking object used by campers/hikers) which was to have the tomatoes in it was at the bottom of my pack, meaning I had to unpack it all. I wasn’t very happy. I was also given the role of Hygiene on the first day and that meant I also had  to carry a roll of toilet paper and a small shovel. I’m not going to say what the shovel is for because it’s quite obvious. Above all today was tiring.

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.
