Marlo Challenge Print E-mail


Our teams name was the Lucky Aces, we walked around half of Marlo hunting for the different clues and signs to complete the challenge. There was a local dog that followed us and even led us to one of the clues. We tried to figure out its name but we didn’t have much luck. In the end we came 3rd out of about 9 teams, which was a good effort.
The community vibe is friendly and very welcoming and everyone is getting along although we are almost in week 4 and I’m starting to really miss my family and friends. Tonight we’re having Mac and cheese woop woop!! Tomorrow is our rest day and a few of us are planning to go and have a hit of tennis, it should be a really good day, I hope the weather is nice.

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.
