Josh and Demmi's Day Print E-mail
Josh and Demmi - Caving

Josh: Well, today 1A had their last day of surfing for the whole term.

It was a great time surfing with everyone and learning something new. We also had CLP. It was a great team effort from the Brentwood team this lesson as we got a lot done and had barely any conflict within the team. We got filming or most of it out of the way and then we wrote all our scripts for what we are going to say on the day. Also last night's evening class was run by Demmi and I. It was the 7 pillars of health and I think we did a very good job of making it a fun and enjoyable time and getting everyone involved.

Demmi: This week has been fairly eventful! On Monday Core 1 (1A & 1B) went caving in Buchan we slit up into all girls and all boys. The boys attacked the wild caves first while the girls went through the show cave to start with. The show cave was really amazing to see all the different formations of rocks and the history of the cave. We all met back at the park and had lunch before then heading off to the wild caves. The wild caves were definitely wild, with many small holes we thought would be impossible to climb through! It was great to see everyone get involved in the caving and have such a great time. There were some really great challenges and some great sights to see. Overall the caving was a great day and everyone had a really fun day!

Dress Rehearsal Print E-mail

Today all groups got together to finalise their CLP presentations. Each school group had a run through with two teachers and then we all had a final dress rehearsal. There has been a lot of organising, preparation, and hard work put in to everyone's Community learning projects. On Friday we had our CLP presentations day where all school groups’ liaison teacher and school principal come to see what we have achieved in the last 8 weeks of our CLP classes at SRC. Today's dress rehearsal was a final chance for all of us to have anything we need to prepare and analyse before Friday's event. We are all really excited for our CLP presentation day and we hope we can display what we have learnt in our CLP classes in an enthusiastic and entertaining way. We have all put a lot of hard work into making our CLP the best they can be and we are all looking forward to seeing all our efforts pay off.

Coast and Community

Today we had an action packed day, with Core 1 having CLP 7 and Coastal Environments and Core 2 having their last surf lesson and CLP 7, With both of us being in Core 2, it was a fun and exciting day but also daunting as we began to realise that we have 12 days left at this amazing place, we took on everything headfirst (including the waves :P) and made the most of what we have and lived life to the fullest! We were all preparing for CLP day on Friday and it is coming fast, most school groups are making significant progress in their presentations and it is great to see everyone getting along and making informed choices when representing themselves and their school. We have CLP classes for tomorrow and a full dress rehearsal of the CLP day on Wednesday!

Another Awe Inspiring Day Print E-mail

CLP rehearsals have been completed and we're all set for a great CLP day, full of lots of entertainment, education and fun. Today was a bit out of the ordinary for us as it was a rest day on a Thursday. There were lots of activities going on today including Surfing, Basketball and watching Shrek 2. The surfers had a great time down at the beach, with the waves getting up to a height of 2 meters. The Basketballers went down to the Orbost stadium for their games and had an awesome experience, shooting hoops with the soon to be NBA star Liam Pashos. Others chose to stay at campus to finish off their passport, me included, although I can reveal that I also used up a bit of my time watching Shrek 2 with the lads. Overall, another great day.

From The greatest student leaders the world has ever seen.

Aussie Dinner Print E-mail

The cooking committee decided to run a Bogan themed dinner party. Students were to come to this dinner with the best Bogan outfit and their roommate. You were then partnered up with another pair of roommates of the opposite gender, who you sat and dined with. Overall the evening was a roaring success, with ACDC and all the Aussie classics blaring in the background as we ate an entrée of garlic bread, chicken Parmas for mains and a pav with berries for dessert, yummy!

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.
