Expo Skills with 2A Print E-mail

Carlie having a blast on Expo Skills DayHi everyone,
Today my expo team 2A went on expo skills. We are from Werrimull P-12 and Fitzroy HS. It is basically a mini expo so we have a rough idea of what the real expo is going to be like. We all had to take on different roles in the team. I was the group orgainser so I had to make sure everyone stuck to the tasks they had to do. For example, the time keeper had to tell us how much time we had to have lunch or to get back to the campus. If there was a decision that had to be made I would have to do a vote to see which way we would go, either the short or the long way. We decided the short way since we have had a pretty active week already and we were all feeling a little tired. We had to choose a campsite where we were going to set up our tents so when we got our real campsite on expo we would know what to do. We put them up, it was easier than we all thought it would be. We all had a really good time and thought it was a good experience and can’t wait to the actual exp. It will be a challenge but a challenge worth doing if you ask me.

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.
