Chloe's Rest Day Print E-mail

Today at Snowy River it was a rest day. Everyone was all pumped for a day of relaxation or ready to go out and do some activities. In the morning a group of 22 went out to Orbost and went shopping. Many had fun trying on clothing and buying a few things for a bargain. Others decided to work on the bike track and were hard at work for a few hours but much progress was made and with many hands it made light work.

In the afternoon a movie was chosen, Mamma! Mia the sing along with many joining in on the songs. Even Miss Holloway, our cook, danced with a few of the girls. Some of the boys went out for a bike ride instead and rode around the local area.

Our community goal was to play a game of silent Ninja which to begin with didn’t get much support from the community but after a bit of time and a bit of persuasion everyone came together and much fun was had. Evening class was Music and many showed of their musical talent and livened the community’s spirit. Many sung, played the guitar, bass, flute, saxophone and bass clarinet. Many enjoyed the return of a familiar face, Mr Francis, who we haven’t seen in a very long time.

All in all this was a great day and even though there were a few hiccups throughout the day we got through this as a community.

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.
