Shaun's Rest Day Print E-mail

Today was a rest day. In the morning I got up and had Special K, it was delicious. After breakfast and headcount I got my gear ready for surfing. After 9:00am headcount we headed for East Cape.

When we got there we took all the surfboards, sports equipment, leg ropes and helmets down to the beach. Down on the beach when we were ready we were split up into two groups. One group had to wait on the sand while the other group was in the water. We were surfing for 35 minutes. I was in the first group so I got to go out first. I caught a few gnarly pounders and stood up a fair bit. After our time was up I went and had some morning tea, Saladas and they were ok.

After that my group played fox holes. To prepare for fox holes we dug some trenches. After we dug the trenches we lined up and Miss Merritt had to catch us out. She would put her hand up and when she closed her fist she was about to turn around and you had to hide in the trenches. The objective of the game was to try to get the drink bottle behind Miss Merritt without getting seen. After a few rounds of that we all got to go for a swim together and it was so much fun.

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.
