Beach Olympics #latergram - Term 2 reflections Print E-mail

Today we had our photos taken and the beach Olympics! I have been looking forward to this day for ages! We officially got our T-Shirts today, even though we finished printing a week ago. We moved the outside tables down to the running track near Grandma and set them up for a full group photo, an Expedition group photo and a CLP group photo.

We moved all the tables back to their rightful places and got our bags to go down to the East Cape and have our Beach Olympics Day. We were split off into teams and had to do a range of activities within those groups. These activities included Beach Volleyball, Cricket, Football (Soccer) and Touch Rugby.

Before we broke for lunch, we all dug holes for Fox Holes. I made my hole at the back area so that I had a good starting point. We all did a headcount with our heads popping up from behind the barriers of our holes and popped down again. It was great fun!

After a Barbeque Lunch we all headed back down to our area on the beach to play Foxholes. I finished it three times, and I had a lot of fun hiding in holes, but it got a bit uncomfortable at times! We filled in our holes and got ready to leave. Even after having a shower I still have sand in my ears!

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.
