Georgia's Day of Caving Print E-mail

Last Friday Core 2 had caving. It was an hour and a half drive to the caves and we had One Direction on really loud the whole way and we all sang along, it was really fun.

CavingWhen we arrived at the caves we split into our Expo groups and 2A went to the wild caves and 2B went to the show caves. The show caves were really pretty and I loved seeing all the stalagmites and stalactites. I now know which stalagmites are and what stalactites are. Stalagmites might reach the ceiling one day and stalactites are hanging on tight to the roof. After the show cave 2B cooked a barbeque lunch for everyone. After lunch the groups swapped over and I went to the wild cave.

For the wild cave we had to wear helmets with lights and CFA uniforms. The opening to the cave was really small and it was funny to see the tall guys in our group; Harry, Jammo and Hayden fit through the hole. The wild cave was really fun and I did a lot better than I thought I would. It was really fun and I would definitely do it again.

On the way home we sang One Direction again. Jammo and James sang it at the top of their lungs and by the end of the bus trip Jammo had lost his voice. It was a great day out of campus with Core 2.

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.
