Caving Adventure Print E-mail

Term 3 - Caving Adventure

We went on a caving adventure! The day started with an 8:00 start (is this school really trying to kill us?). We went down towards the caves and split into two groups. One went into the wild cave where we would climb through small holes and slide down along walls in pitch black darkness (again are they trying to kill us?). Whilst the other group was taken on a tour through a lovely and DRY cave that had spectacular, breath-taking stalagmites and stalactites. We first went into the wild cave where we were filled to the brim with wombat poo and mud (seriously?). Although that happened we had an amazing time that we will never forget. It was so much fun and was a great way to engage our yellow quadrant. We squeezed through spots we never thought were humanly possible and slid down places whilst thinking we were going to die (oh my gosh please help us). The show cave on the other hand was clean and not muddy (Thank God). It had beautiful and shiny stalagmites and stalactites that were thousands of years old. Overall the whole day was unforgettable and we would give anything to do it again.

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.
