Michael's Yoga Session Print E-mail
Written by Michael, Snowy River Campus, Term 3 2013   

My Group 1A and I went to the aerodrome just behind the school and did some yoga because it was quiet and there were no planes going. So when we first got there we put some mats down and did some yoga stretches. Then some people in the group were playing around so they went back to school and there were only eight of us left. We did some more stretches but they were more intense. When we had all done enough stretching we did some yoga ningra and that’s just relaxation yoga. So we got our own comfortable spot in the room and listened to a CD telling us some stuff to try to relax us, then our teacher came around and put a lavender pillow on our eyes. I felt like I was losing it a bit because of the fumes from the lavender. And when we took the pillows off and got up I didn’t really know what to think because my mind was a bit messed up. And that’s my yoga session.

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.
