Grace's Report on Expo 2 Print E-mail
Written by Grace, Snowy River Campus Term 3 2013   

We (2B) started our journey half way up Mt Raymond. We reached the top to find the other expo group, 2A waiting for us. Today was our first day and also 2A’s last day. We stopped for a quick hello at set off through the bush. We walked in the heat and finally made it to Lake Curlip, where we found our canoes. We paddled to our campsite in the middle of a paddock and stayed the night. Stories were told around the camp fire. The next morning we paddled out onto the Brodribb River and glided across the water as a group for the whole day until we reached our second campsite. This time we stayed at the Slips. It’s just across from The Marlo jetty. We explored the dunes in the afternoon. In the morning we crossed the river and walked through Marlo until we got back to Snowy River Campus. It was challenging for many but everyone had a great time and will never forget our experience. All up we travelled 24km. We had so much fun and learnt on the way!

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.
