Battle of the Sexes Night Print E-mail
Written by Hannah, Snowy River Campus Student, Term 3 2013   

On the 10th of July it was a rest day so we all did different things during the day but for night class we were all brought together to play a game that 1A held, it was a battle of the sex’s trivia night. We were split into two teams, boys vs. girls. It was an extremely competitive but fun game that everyone got involved with and had a great night. Sadly the girls lost by only 1 point but the game brought us all closer together and created trust between us all. We all had a great night chatting, getting into the game and getting to know each other better that the score didn’t even matter. In the game there were different sections; Music, Sport and History. Some teams did well depending on their strengths and other teams depending on their weaknesses. By the end of the night we just sat in the common room talking with each other or singing together. It was the most fun and many students hope we get to do it again.

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.
