Environmental Bike Ride Print E-mail

Yesterday Jacqueline and I and the environmental bike ride it was a 30 km journey that spanned the whole day. It started off with a large hill that was amazing even though the weather wasn’t that great we still had a good time and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.

We ended up in a place called Cabbage Tree Palms National Park. It had a rare species of palm tree and Cabbage Tree Palm National Park is the southernmost point that they grow. We also visited a logging cope which is supposed to be sustainable although in comparison to a normal forest it is utterly destroyed and will most likely never hold as much life as it used to. Anyway back to the bike ride, we had lunch and then finally made it to sealed road. I tell you now I embraced the change. The biggest let down for the journey was just before the sealed road there was a smelly rank carcass that made me dry retch.

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.
