Term 2 2015



Dylan and Leah's Day Print E-mail

Today we had CLP4 (Community Learning Project) and that was good to complete more of our CLP projects. Colac didn’t do as good as they could have but still completed a decent amount of work and planning. Hopetoun went reasonably well and completed most of their work without much worry.

This afternoon we had problem solving, in this class we learnt how to properly address personal issues. We also played a few problem solving games to finish off, it was good to play games because it relaxed us at the end of the session.

Yesterday our community goal was to get people active and outside, we achieved this goal by playing a community game of capture the flag. Everyone had fun playing, including us, which meant it was a success.

Bo's Surfing Adventure Print E-mail

I am doing my blog about my surf on Friday. It was very fun, I got up on my board several times. It was so funny to watch Josh falling off of his board but he finally got up on his board. It was a great day for surfing as well I think we all got up on to our boards at some point of the day. I had lots of fun and at one point Josh, Connor and I got the same wave and we all went under. It was fun because I did a flip under water and stood back up on my feet. I went under lots of times, I was funny. Some people got very good waves and it was cool to see them trying to get up. That was the first time in ages since I got up on a board it brought back so many good memories from when I was in grade 5. It was the best time ever for this term so far. I hope to have lots more fun like that on at this campus and at home when we all go to our own homes again.

Aboriginal Walk Print E-mail
Aboriginal Walk

Yesterday I had the aboriginal walk; it wasn’t really a walk but more a presentation. First the guys went to Buzzy and Jade where we learnt all about the different tribes and weapons and the best kind of stones for weapons which are bluestones. He also told us a bit about his traditions and how close we’re to some of their burial grounds and eating spots. Once he had finished we had morning tea then went to Ms. Wade where we learnt about how she made baskets as well as eel and fish traps and some tools and tricks that made it easier to catch the fish in them. Once she finished that we went for a little walk and she showed us some plants that we could eat, some were actually alright. Afterwards she told us some dream time stories. Once all that was done we went to the buses for the ride back to campus while contemplating all that we had learnt.

Will's Memories So Far Print E-mail

Being at Snowy has been amazing the memories, the friends, the experiences it’s been so worth it going surfing, a Point Ricardo the 3 day exposition and share that with people I hope will be in my life forever, riding the bike tracks built by past and present students, celebrating ANZAC day with the town of Orbost, even waking up at 6:30am has its perks. But what the best thing about Snowy is that when the ten weeks are up you know that you’ll have everything you need to active what you want to do in life whether it’s a brain surgeon or a netball star the next one direction or the next Tony Hawk an amazing dancer or a punk rock legend. Being at Snowy is the best thing that could happen to anyone…

Marlo Challenge Print E-mail

Today for afternoon class we went out into Marlo and went hunting for certain objects around Marlo. We had to memorise the pictures from the start and find the same object and take a picture of it. There was nine teams all walking around the town of Marlo in pajamas, Fluoro colours, formal dress, pirates costumes and black outfit. We all topped it off with our bright blue Gortex jacket as it was windy, raining and hailing! We all looked ridiculous but it was great fun.

School for Student Leadership - Student Equity Fund The Student Equity Fund enables people who share our vision of transformative education to contribute to this outstanding program and help ensure it is affordable and accessible for all students in the public education system.


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.
