Expo Preparation and an Expo Challenge for 2B Print E-mail
Written by Alanna, Snowy River Campus Student, Term 2 B 2013   

Today was yet another great day here at the Snowy River Campus. I had expo preparation all day as 2B are leaving for expo in the morning. It’s going to be great hiking along the beach and camping with all the students from Maffra and Red Cliffs. Despite the bad weather everyone is pumped and ready to go. It’s going to be an amazing experience and as the last group to go everyone has already told us how much fun it is going to be.

As a team we came up with a goal to challenge ourselves whilst we are away. There has already been a lot of challenging things here already such as bridge building, the half day bike ride and I even find it challenging sometimes to get out of my bed in the morning. But being here has made everyone a lot more confident within themselves and working in teams has helped us to realise our full potential. We have agreed as a team we want to hike as far as we possibly can with the weather conditions and with everyone’s positive attitude within the team we have even considered the option of hiking all the way back to campus.

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.
