ANZAC Day at Snowy Print E-mail
Written by Devon and Tallara, Snowy River Campus Students, Term 2A 2013   

ANZAC DayToday was a significant day, as it was ANZAC day. We held a small ceremony in the morning to commemorate the day. Mr Reeves gave a speech about ANZAC day and what it is all about. It was interesting as he told us about the history of ANZAC day. Some fellow students also gave short speeches, and we had a minute’s silence. Mr Bourke played the last post.

Today I had beliefs and values with Mr Johnson. We talked about what we all believe in and what other religions believe in. Then we did a bit on what values that we all like in our friends and others around us. Then I had Passport 2 and this criterion was about Getting Along. We wrote some stuff about how we get along with our peers and what we like in friendships in our community. I did most of the questions but I may need to finish it off in my spare time.

My group, 2A, went canoeing today. The weather was wonderful, and we had heaps of fun. We learnt about the different stokes, how to turn and how to rescue yourself if you capsize. We canoed up the river and down the river too. We even went to shore near the mouth of the Yeerung River, and walked along the beach. Overall, the whole team really enjoyed the day, even when we had to capsize and the water was really cold!

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.
