1B Bridge Building Print E-mail

Bridge buildingToday 1B (Princes Hill SC and Echuca High School) had the bridge building class.

At the beginning of the day, we were all very excited because we had heard that bridge building is lots of fun. After packing all our gear and loading the bus, we headed off to Orbost Angling Club to start the class.

The briefing was simple and we started soon after. At first, we thought that building a bridge would not be too difficult but as the day progressed we realized that we were in for a challenge. Nearing the end of the day, assembling the bridge in the water became problematic but with perseverance and determination we eventually created it. Before leaving, we reflected on the day and loaded the gear back on the bus. Everyone enjoyed the day and were pleased with their efforts.

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.
