2A's Gnarly Pounders! Print E-mail

2A for the past two days have been getting out and about and doing some great outdoorsy activities. Yesterday we got to go surfing. Wooooh! It was such a good day for it, the sun was shining, the weather was warming up and there was hardly any wind. Everyone was pumped and ready to go. We were so enthusiastic that we decided it would be a good idea to leave early. So before lunch we got all our gear ready and as soon as we had eaten we got into the bus and drove down to East Cape.

2A's Gnarly Pounders

We had the windows down and the music pumping as we came into the car park at East Cape. Everyone got out as soon as the vehicle stopped and ran over to the edge to check out what was happening in the water. As soon as we saw it our mouths dropped… The waves were TINY, there was barely anything to surf. We were so hyped for something really gnarly, but all we got were these piddly little waves.
Everyone slowly walked back to the van to get out all our gear. We all got our stuff out and walked down to where the boards were on the beach. We practiced our technique on the beach for five minutes in the sweltering heat. After we finally could not stand the heat anymore everyone grabbed their boards and ran for the water. The water looked so inviting until we touched it. The water was absolutely freezing! As soon as we put our toes in you couldn’t feel them. Everyone jumped on their boards so that their toes wouldn’t freeze anymore and paddled out.

Although it was small we all got some sweet rides and as the afternoon went on the waves got bigger. Everyone caught lots more waves as it got bigger and we all cracked up laughing with everyone’s stacks too. There was about half an hour to go when the water started to get way too cold for my liking. I and pretty much the rest of the Timboon crew couldn’t stand the cold anymore so we wimped out and left the rest of the crew to have another half an hour in the waves. It was such a good day, to be out in the water with everyone and having some awesome wipe outs.

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.
