Reflections on Rest Day - Indigo & Brandyn Print E-mail

REST DAY by Indigo

Despite being confined to campus, we still had a fun-filled day.
Passports and CLPs were worked on and the Passport art is starting to look good. Food was prepared for tomorrow’s Mexican night and birthday cakes were made. Yum! : )
Today brought lots of rain and some big thunderstorms. We all enjoyed jumping in puddles and slipping down the mini rivers, or at least watching.
Today was our second-last Rest Day and we sure made it count. 14 days to go, but we all wish it would never end.

REST DAY by Brandyn

Today was a very wet and rainy day. We were kept inside most of the day until Jake and Ryan suggested the idea to go outside. I know I was out there straight away and most other people were to. We played in puddles and slid down miniature rivers. It was the most fun I’ve had in a long time. Most people went feral once they had their first slide until afternoon tea was announced and it was cake time!
We made a fair mess inside but we had to fix it if we wanted to eat cake. Before all of this fun most of us were doing Passport work or writing emails.
We were then watching a movie and eating beautiful lunches which consisted of bacon sandwiches. It was a fun day and we all unleashed our inner-child again!

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.
