Raft Day CLP Print E-mail

Tyrrell College CLP - Raft Race DayOn the first of November 2009 Callum, Erica, Blake and Sheydin held and ran a Raft Race Day at our local recreational lake, Green Lake.

The idea of the day was to help celebrate and show how much the filling of Green Lake meant to the community after it had been dry for the past 10 years.

In preparation for this day we had to organise posters/advertisement, funding from many local businesses, raft race rules, setting of the day, activities, food and drinks just to name a few things that we did.



The day ran very smoothly from the help of classmates and various other people helping us in making the day work. There was live music entertainment, food/drinks van and also a raffle. There was also entertainment such as a jumping castle, dunking machine, face painting and also the lake to cool down in on this hot day.

After the day had finished, we managed to raise $859.80. This was donated back to the community with half going to the Green Lake community and the other half going to the Sea Lake Hospital.

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.
