Quote of the Day:

"If you are going through hell, keep going" by Winston Churchill.

Today I was student leader. It was a silly day to be doing it because we had to leave at 15 past eight for caving.

It was good to see different country and to go in to caves. Even though I had already been in a cave it was good to see a different cave and the beauty it had inside. We went to the show cave first which had pretty things in it such as a water fall. Even though it had no water flowing it still looked cool because it had made a formation as if there was water flowing. Further along in the caves there were two huge holes that you couldn’t see the bottom of without a torch. It was crazy to think that that hole would have been filled with water.

The next cave was called the “Wilsons cave” it was an exploring cave which was quite exciting. Once we had got our overalls on, and our helmets, we set off. We started walking in a paddock there was an entrance. It was only one-meter-wide so the people with claustrophobia were a bit scared at the start. Once you had gone through the small space you could stand up. The rest of the cave was exciting. A highlight was doing the wombat burrow. It was a small space that we could crawl through if we wanted to. It was fun. I was the first one to go through it. Some people didn’t go through either because they were too scared or they didn’t fit. Another highlight was the post box. It was a small 30cm gap that you posted yourself down head first, it was cool sliding down. There was a groove that had been made from people going down there so often. When we got out we walked up a hill to get to the buses. It was quite steep but 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.
