Community Service - Planting Fruit Trees Print E-mail
Written by Mikaela, Snowy River Campus Term 3 2013   

For today’s classes Core Two had community service in the morning and CLP 8 in the afternoon. I wasn’t sure what we would have to do for community service and didn’t know whether it would be good or bad. The tasks that we had to complete today were planting some fruit trees in the garden, cleaning out the chook pen and moving the wood pile. Today Mr Den Otter showed us how to plant a tree properly and then we all had a go at it. We planted a different variety of fruit such as apple trees and cherry plants. After completing that we all went and trimmed the bushes on the bike track.

Community Service - Tree Planting

Our CLP lesson was very productive today and we have pretty much finished everything. With a few adjustments and run throughs we should all be confident and ready to present on Wednesday!

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.
