Bridge Building Print E-mail

We were all excited to see if we were going to achieve the goals we set as a team to accomplish for bridge building.  Those Goals were Co-operation and Patience with both of our goals I reckon we went really well especially Co-operation because we communicated together really well and everyone’s ideas were getting heard.While we were building our bridge the boys Tom and Noah were keeping us entertained at the same time as working by put on hilarious Scottish, Jamaican and Irish accents.

I reckon the best part was when we finished making the bridge even though it took some hard work and lots of thinking. 1B got our outstanding bridge standing and staying in the water and even better reaching the kayak. Luke and Noah pushed it into the water and tied everything so it was safe for the rest of the team. One of the main things we had to do was to fit our whole group of 11 on our bridge and one at a time reach in to the kayak and get a little treasure out.

My Highlight of the day would have to be having all the group working together and having heaps of fun at the same time as working so hard to finish the bridge in time.

Bye for now

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.
