Expo 2 to Mt Raymond with 1B and 2A Print E-mail

EXPO 2: Mt Raymond

2A had a bad start to their expo due to weather reasons. The first part, walking down Mt Raymond, went well but that’s about all that did. We canoed on the first day to our first campsite where we slept right next to a group of very loud cows. The second day we canoed all morning in perfect weather but then it got windy. We had to go back on land and walk to Marlo. The second day we attempted to canoe what we didn’t yesterday but it was still too hard. In the end we had to walk from Marlo back to Campus. It wasn’t what we planned but it was an amazing expo anyway and 2A really enjoyed it.

1A had a great start to their expo. We were told that we weren’t allowed to canoe on the first day because of wind but it turned out to be great because we were able to grow closer as a team and we became even better friends.  We ventured on and had a good time. The second day we canoed all day which was great and everybody was having a great time. On the last night we had a great time watching the stars at night and we also woke up to see the beautiful sunrise.

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.
