Relaxation Print E-mail

Yesterday 1A had a relaxation class with Miss Patterson. To do this class, we went into the meeting room after lunch. We all had a yoga mat, a bolster, a blanket and two foam blocks.

The first thing we did was learn how to meditate in a moment. We had to shut our eyes for one minute and think about our breathing. After the moment meditation we all felt ready for class.

The next thing we did was yoga poses. While we did these yoga poses we had relaxing music in the background to help us meditate. We did this for around an hour.

Next we went into deep relaxation. Miss Patterson was talking while playing relaxing music while we were lying completely still. We had eye masks on and we were lying down on our yoga mats with our blankets covering us. We did this deep meditation for half an hour all though it only seemed like five minutes. A few people fell asleep as it was extremely relaxing. All in all it was very disappointing for the class to end.

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.
