Bush Dance Night. Print E-mail
Written by Kiah and Kelsey, Snowy River Campus Students, Term 2B 2013   

We had a Bush Dance and had a lot of fun. We danced to many unheard of songs and learnt lots of new bush dances. Some people were really passionate and displayed that in dance moves! The Nut bush was the all-time favourite and had everyone up and dancing apart from the few injured students. To top the night off we did some meditation with Miss Patterson to calm us before we were shipped off to bed!

The bush dance was probably the most enjoyable night I have had since being here at the Snowy River Campus. Doing the country dances was so fun, it was a great way to talk to people as we were only in our second week and didn’t really know everybody. A few people had to sit out because of injuries, which was pretty disappointing but they enjoyed watching everybody else attempt to dance. By the end of the night everybody was cooking in their flannies and were exhausted. That was possibly the best night sleep I have ever had!

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.
