How to catch a wave

Our names are Tali and Callum and we were student leaders on the 1st of May 2013. Today we had Passport and Surfing.

In surfing we went down to East Cape beach to meet the instructor. He taught us the correct way to stand up on the board by lifting your knees up, putting your feet on each side and attempting to stand. He also taught us how to catch a wave by arching your back up and riding the wave all the way to the shore. At the end of the class we were allowed to go out and have a normal swim. The waves were massive and everyone kept getting dumped. It was the funniest and most exciting time we’ve had while being here!

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.
