Dance Night! Print E-mail
Written by Taylor and Karli, Snowy River Campus Students, Term 3 2013   

On the 30th of July, the students at Snowy River had a dance night for evening class, where we learnt about ballroom dancing which was held by Mrs Herbert.

We first all met in the common room and had to help out to prepare the room. Once we moved all the tables outside, and we split into a boys side and a girls side. We were told to get a partner and to get into a circle. Once everyone had a partner and was in position, the teachers began to go through the moves. It was quite interesting watching people trying to learn the moves, and also trying to learn it ourselves, as some of them took a bit of getting used to, but eventually most of us got them.

There were three songs that we learnt the dances to, one of them which was Candy Man, which some people named as their favourite, and two others which could be classified as classical songs which were still good. After we finished the third song, the teachers decided to leave the songs on shuffle and let us do some free dancing, where people just danced however they wanted to which was very fun. Most people say that they were all quite fun to do so some of the students might even plan for a second dance night which would be interesting.

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.
