A Very Rainy Day Print E-mail
Written by Mimi and Ebony, Snowy River Campus Students, Term 2B 2013   

Hi, I’m Mimi from Melbourne Girls’ College!
Today 1A had the half day bike ride, we started on Mimdogs’ track and we rode towards Marlo Plains. We started with cloudy weather but a few minutes in we were putting our trusty Gortex on and getting soaked! As we rode, we changed partners and we all got closer as the ride progressed. We stopped for morning tea (seeking cover from some trees) and met our new horsey friend, who we fondly named, ‘Pascal’, who we fed some treats! As we turned around and headed back to campus, Ash and Tyanah had a crash as they were looking for ducks and Tyanah came back to campus to rest and have a nice warm shower! Overall, a great day and I can’t believe that we have a week and a half left here and I really don’t want to leave!

A Very Rainy Day...

Hi! I’m Ebony and I’m from Kyneton Secondary College!
1B was inside all day today with a morning class working on our CLP presentations and afternoon class learning about conflict management in Peer Skills. The rain poured down the majority of the day so even in our breaks we were trapped indoors! However, our classes were made enjoyable by the teachers and even though we were all slightly restless, we got on and finished our work. I learnt that my conflict management style is comparable to a teddy bear in the way of being accommodating. In the afternoon, we had our community walk which is a good way to mingle with people you don’t generally talk to whilst also staying healthy with two laps of the running track. It was heaps of fun!

So, a great day overall for both groups as well as having a great time yesterday being student leaders 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.
