Lani and Laura's Treasure Hunt Print E-mail

Hello to our dear readers! Back on the 1st of September we, Laura and Lani, were student leaders! *Cue dramatic music, mwuhahahaha!* To make our day particularly fun, we decided to make the community work for their afternoon tea. So we set up a devilishly difficult treasure hunt, consisting of four checkpoints located at various places in the school grounds. To find these checkpoints, students in four teams of nine had to unravel a riddle to send them to the next destination, written by none other than ourselves! So as the rest of the student body raced wildly around the school ground hunting for their next clue, we sat leisurely at the big shed, nibbling on our dear cook Ms Holloway’s famous peach cake.

Well done team 3 who found us first, and the whole community were very proud of themselves as they got their cake! Until tomorrow, see you later!

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.
