Friday Blog #2 - Sam Print E-mail

Hi my name is Sam. Some of the highlights from my week would be Bike Intro for an outdoor class and for an indoor class would be Weebly Intro. On the Bike Intro we went through the safety rules, ABC (air in the wheels, brakes are working and the chain are on and are working). After that we did some tests to see if we can use the bikes and get a feel of them. We rode down the drive way to see if we can do singles and doubles. After we could do that we went down one of the bike trails to get a feel of the bikes and put what we just learnt into action. After we finished the trail we went back to the shed and cleaned down the bikes with a cloth to wipe down all the water and dirt.

In the Weebly Intro we got on to the Weebly site and started to set it up. There were a few things to do like getting all of the tabs right, and picking a theme and a layout. Once we did that we could just get the feel of it. In our own time we have to do a website that shows our time here and we write a reflection for each day.
Something new that I have learnt is that teamwork is key because if there is no team the job can’t be done. In order to complete tasks you need to use communication, respect, patience and make group decisions. I felt I achieved my personal goal. How I did this was to make sure the team was working together.

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.
