Naomi and Morgan's Caving Blog Print E-mail

On the 15th of August, 1A (our group) and 1B went caving an hour’s drive from campus. The first cave we attended was the ‘Wild Cave’.

It was awesome down there and we all really enjoyed our time, helping encourage each other when needed and all of us completed the journey with smiles.

The ‘Show Cave’ was next, and the amazing rock formations and stalactites and stalagmites were simply beautiful.

We learnt heaps about the caves through our guide and learned that a 10 cm stalactite/ stalagmite takes over 100 years to form, by calcium gathering and freezing at the end of its tip.

All in all, caving was absolutely amazing and we would like to thank all the teachers and our guides for making it possible.

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.
