Surfing in Term 3 Print E-mail
Written by Caitlin, Snowy Student Term 3 2009   


Hey everyone :)
Today our group, 2B, (Red Cliffs and Gladstone Park) went surfing.
It was absolutely freezing but definitely worth it. Some of us were lucky enough to be able to stand up. Yay!

That was for the morning and in the afternoon we had ‘Intro to Bikes’.

We had to do activities to prove that we could ride a bike, so we could get our license. We all got them although I think some people should still be on their L plates. Haha.

Overall today was pretty fun, my highlight was surfing, being able to stand up made me feel good. Kate and Rhianna also stood up, they really enjoyed the morning at the beach. It was a good experience for us because it’s a lot different to skiing on the river but still loads of fun.

Bye for now.

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.
