Beach Sports Carnival Print E-mail

First off, we hosted the morning headcount and afterwards we linked up with Gnurad Gundidj. The final rest day the sports committee organised an event for all students to participate in. It was a beach carnival at Cape Conran. There were events such as wade, swim and sprint. Everyone was split up into 3 groups of fifteen and we competed against others in our own group. We believe everyone had a great time and we would also like to thank the sports committee for putting this on for our enjoyment.

When we got back to school at 1:30, most people wanted to work on their passport so it was very quiet throughout the campus. It was good though as we thought everyone advanced a lot on their passports and got that little inch closer to completing them. It also helped us with our community goal which was for everyone to have a productive day and complete more work on their passports.

The evening class was called the battle of the quadrants. It was run by 2B who did a fantastic job. This was basically a debate of which quadrant of the brain was better. The quadrants of the brain are; blue (rational), green (safekeeping), red (feeling) and yellow (experimental). So, the four teams had a representative to answer questions about their quadrants. At the end, the most popular quadrant was the red quadrant.

We both believe that we did a good job throughout the day and we both had a lot of 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.
