Charly and Jock's Day Print E-mail

Yesterday, Core 2 went caving. We left at 8:00 and travelled by mini bus to Buchan, where we split up and half of us went to the Wild Cave, or Wilsons Cave, and the other half went to the Royal Cave.

My group went to the Royal Cave first. We were all amazed by the story behind the discovery of the cave, as the Fairy Cave was discovered first, and the hole in which it was discovered only being 20 centimeters wide. All of the “decorations” were really pretty and it was a really great tour. After my group cooked lunch for everyone else, my group went over to the Wild Cave. To actually get into the cave, you have to get though a really small hill in a cow paddock. There are many small spaces and lots of close walls that you have to walk next to and some people had fears of heights and confinement, so it was a big challenge for them. Overall the day was a great success, and I would, given the chance, do it all over again.

Today we had expo prep. We got all we needed ready to go on expo tomorrow. Our packs turned out lighter than we anticipated which we thought was a nice surprise. We also organized all the food which we thought was very important. After that we had relaxation where we did some YOGA and breathing techniques. It was Very relaxing and really refreshed you after you had done it. Some of the positions where challenging but you felt a lot better after it. That’s all from Snowy River Campus Day 45

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.
