Ride to Marlo

Yesterday I was student leader and it actually wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be. My personal goal was to be more organized as student leader and to get everyone to headcount on time. I think both Hamish and I did a very good job at managing our time and getting everyone early to headcount.

After morning headcount 2B headed out for a bike ride to Marlo, we rode along the main road and went through some of the tracks on the side of the road. When we got into Marlo we stopped at the playground for well-deserved morning tea. We all enjoyed ourselves and had a positive outlook on the day, and everyone was grateful for each other’s support.

After we rode back we did CPR with Mrs Francis and learnt all about DRSABCD which was interesting. I’m a little nervous about the exam coming up on it but with a bit more practice it should be alright!

Yesterday I was student leader and my personal goal was to be patient when we went on our bike ride in to Marlo. Our ride was really good fun then after that we had CPR. Which was a bit boring but it is a good thing to have in a job resume and it could come in really handy. My favourite thing to do is to work on the push bike track that is around the campus when I’m not working on it or in class I’m riding it and having a ball.

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.
