Catch Up at Snowy River Campus Print E-mail

Well today was very eventful, we had 2A on the Enviro bike ride which was a lot of fun. The Enviro bike ride was 28.5 kilometres so it was a fair way but 2A came out with high spirits and sore legs after a hard day bike riding but it was very enjoyable.

Back at campus, 2B had first aid as one of their classes. We learnt all about how to treat people with injuries such as; serious burns, fractured limbs and spinal injuries. It was a very informative class and we had some fun with role playing. Today was also the day that 1A came back from expo 2 and 1B set out for their turn. 

Our student leaders today were Jessie and Jaicob. They have been doing a great job and are going to be running our evening class tonight which should be interesting. Everyone is having loads of fun and we are going to make the most of the last 3 weeks. Thanks for reading!

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.
