Intro to Bikes Print E-mail
Written by Scott, Snowy Student Term 3 2009   

Today 2A had a class in the afternoon called ‘Intro to Bikes’.  The name says it all, it was an introduction to the bikes and paths at the Snowy River Campus.

First of all we were shown where all the equipment was kept and then how to put the helmet on then adjust them so they fit. Once we got all the safety stuff out of the way we had a slow race (a race were the last person wins). Then we had to demonstrate that we had the skills to ride a bike well in all kind of situations and scenarios some of these were turning in tight corners, riding over a log, weaving through obstacles and riding over a see-saw.

After we had all shown the teachers we could do these skills we jumped back on our bikes and headed off on to the bike track through the scrub. Some of the track was a bit hairy but we only had one person fall over which was a plus. It was a great day and it was enjoyed by all.

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.
