Half Day Ride Print E-mail
Written by Louise, Snowy River Campus Student, Term 2B 2013   

Half Day RideYesterday, my expo group 2B went on the half day bike ride. We travelled along Marlo Plains Road. It was harder than I thought it would be but I had fun.

We rode along the main road for a kilometre or two then we turned down another road and that turned into a dirt road very fast. It was bumpy on the dirt road because of all the big rocks.

When we stopped for morning tea a beautiful black horse came up to us. Molly fed it some apple and we all patted it but it liked Mitch the most, he’s a bit of a horse whisperer.

On the way home, we went down a huge hill to Point Ricardo. We sat there for a few minutes and then we had to ride back up the hill, not fun. Overall, the sun was shining and everyone had fun so that’s the main thing.

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.
