A Walk in the Paddock Print E-mail

Yesterday we had an awesome day as Student Leaders, even though we were at Enviro Bike for the day. We rode 30 km through Marlo Plains and had a good look at logging coups. We learned about leaf debris and how it affects water flow, and logging procedures over the years. We mixed things up a bit at Community Walk, and walked through multiple paddocks, which was interesting and an adventure. At dinner, we split our peers into tables grouped with people from the same birth month.

The highlight of the day was running Core One’s ‘Minute to Win it’, which we did successfully. We did different activities, such as eating dry Weet-Bix and whistling and throwing bean bags into hoops blindfolded. Overall, our day was really successful, and everybody had a good time.

It was a perfect second-time at being Student Leader for both of us!

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.
