Rainforest Walk

Today we had a rest day, this is where it’s up to the students as to what they want to do. These activities might include a range of different things throughout the day but what I did today was in the morning. A large group of us travelled to Orbost and played a game of netball and football. It was a lot of fun and we all enjoyed it. Then in the afternoon I went with a smaller group to the Bemm River Reserve and we did the Mckenzie rainforest walk. I thought it was amazing! It was streaming with ferns and native trees and the ground was covered in green. There were also two bridges we crossed overlooking small creeks, it was really pretty. We took real notice of what we were walking through as we are using the Bemm River Reserve as a topic to teach the Orbost primary kids as part of our Local Learning Project (L.L.P). I had a great day and can’t wait to go on another walk through a rainforest.

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.
