Enviro Bike Ride Print E-mail

Today our expo group 1A, had Enviro Bikes. We had to ride 30 km from the Logging Coupe at Cabbage Tree Palms to SRC.

At the logging coupe we discussed how logging can affect the environment and the habitat around it, but the benefits that come from logging. It was interesting to see the regrowth from the area that had been logged 5 years ago. We learnt a lot about sustainability of the earth resources. An interesting fact we also learnt today was that most of the trees we saw that were untouched by the loggers had been around for over 100 years. After we explored the area we hopped on our bikes and headed off on our journey back to campus. The sun was pounding down on us as we pedalled our hearts out along the roads. There were times when we all felt like giving up but we all pulled through and encouraged each other along the way. Overall it was a really fun day and we can’t wait to start riding when we get back home.

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.
