Being student leader - Bridget's and Alec's report from May 31st Print E-mail

It’s been pretty quiet back at campus over the week, with half the group on expo. They took a three day trip to and from Mount Ramon, walking and canoeing a total of 30 km over three days.

This week has been pretty busy, we’ve been getting outdoors a lot too, with our expo teams going bike riding on an all-day 27 km ride, caving in the wild caves, squeezing through tricky rocks and getting extremely muddy. We’ve also been surfing and everybody seems to be getting the hang of it now, as well as going on Waterwatch – we learnt about macro invertebrates and the water quality of the snowy river.

We’re both pretty pumped for our turn to go on expo next week, and hoping the weather will be nice and sunny.

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.
