1B Bridge Building

It’s Jenna and Emily here, we are in 1B and today we did bridge building.

Bridge building is when are required to build a bridge out of a certain amount of materials such as wooden polls and ropes. Then you have to put it in the water without anyone touching the water. Everyone  has to then walk across it and reach into a canoe and pick out an object and climb back to land.

Before we started to build we got taught how to tie different kinds of knots and how to construct a tripod. Our group had some pretty weird and brilliant ideas, which sort of failed but was really fun to try. We made a few mistakes along the way, but learnt how and why we went wrong in the reflection.

Since being here at Snowy River Campus everyone is forming close friendships, which we think have been formed for life.

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.
