Doncadown Pirates!Yesterday Doncadown had our last team activity ‘Raft Building’.

It was a lot of fun,  we made our last time together as a group fun and exciting. We all got dressed up as pirates.

Once we had completed our raft off we went to sail the seas to our destination where the treasure was.  We made it the whole way there without breaking the raft. Once we hopped off, we followed the map to get our treasure and found there was also a note! It was really good.

On the way back sailing, our raft started to break and sink. One by one we all fell off, but I was the last one left on and I was dry. Then all of a sudden all this water gets splashed on me and I was wet. Over all, 1A has worked really well and I am going to miss them all.
1, 2, 3 DONCADOWN!

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.
