intro to bikes Print E-mail
Written by Amy- Roxburgh   

On the 13th of October I had the class intro to bikes. In this class we learnt about how to maintain a bike. We also learned how to use the attack position while going downhill. My friend Tyson and I had some great fun. We had the funniest time while learning about the attack position, because we had to ride over to pieces of wood and I almost fell over!!  After we did a few exercises that helped us use our brakes and which gears would help us more while going uphill or downhill, we then went for a little ride around the campus. While doing this we rode uphill. This was hard for me because I’m really bad at going uphill! But later on everyone had a laugh when we played the slow race, we had to race to the line but the slowest person wins. I came second in the first round and third in the second round. But overall it was a great class.

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.
