Enviro Bike Ride with 2A Print E-mail
Written by Tayla & Will, Snowy River Campus Term 3 2013   

Today 2A had a day of riding, also known as ‘Enviro Bike’.

Throughout the day we looked at varied landscapes and states of foresting around local plantations. In the morning we stopped at a few different places to find out about the history and backgrounds of these areas, some dense forest almost rainforest like, scrubs and the devastation caused by tree clearing, as well as farming lands. And we did all this while riding our bikes. The bike ride was approximately 27kms and we began at Cabbage Tree Palms Track and finished back at the Snowy River Campus. All throughout the day there was a lot of positive discussions as well as a range of encouragement from the team.

A big thank you to Will who stepped up even more as student leader whilst I was away on Enviro Bike. Will and I were very happy with our community and personal goals.

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.
