A Hike to the Aerodrome. Print E-mail

Hike to the AerodromeToday we went on expo skills   
And now my leg really kills
We went along a beaten track
Until a road, a bit more slack
Along the way we stopped for lunch
We were quite a hungry bunch
There was a view of the sea
Animals and birds all set free
There we sat on the top of a cliff ledge
Between Hayley and Grace I was wedged
We were all set a job
After that an emu bob
Half way through we pitched our tents
Teachers made sure it was ladies and gents
And straight away we packed them up
After that I washed my cup
And set off with my pack
Back down that beaten track
We turned off around the corner
Along a trail with a lot of fauna
Through the bush and up a hill
There we stood rather still
Looking at what we now call home
SNOWY RIVER CAMPUS…. A walk to the Aerodrome

Half Rest Day Print E-mail

Rest Day - FishingIn the morning, we all had classes. There was CLP, which they worked very productive with, Thinking & Learning 2, which was extremely fun and there was CPR exam with was interesting. Everyone that did the CPR exam passed and we were all very grateful for it.

In the second part of the day, was a last minute rest day. There was a group of about 10 that decided to go fishing, and they bought back 2 fish! 
Some people decided to watch ‘John Tucker Must Die’ and the some other people hung out in the west wing. A few people decided to go out to zone 3 after class and they were making a hut. Others that went out decided to be cave men and muck around.

It was a very active day and everyone enjoyed themselves.

1A First Day Expedition Print E-mail

1A on the Today we met at 8:30 am to pack our food for expo. Then after finally checking that we had everything we sat down for headcount. Straight after we all loaded on to the mini bus to get taken to our starting point, the “bridge” while listening to the ‘So Fresh” CD.

We then held a group meeting discussing our goals and what we wanted to get out of our expedition. We left the bridge at around 10:30. We started out on a track with a few steep hills until we got to the beach, where we held a team meeting and had morning tea which was muesli slice. We then kept on walking for a while stopping for a break around every km. It was so hard walking on the sand as the sets were quite high on the shore so there was no hard sand for us to walk on.

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.
