Sport's Day at Cann River Print E-mail
Written by Eddie- Reservoir District   

On the 21st of October it was our Interschool Sports team’s day when we travelled to Cann River College and so did Mallacoota College.  Well before we left we’d been put into random teams and 1 of our teams had to be on the opposing team.
There were 8 teams and I was in team 1. Everyone had to participate in every sport which included Basketball, Volleyball, Netball and Soccer.
First up I had Cann River in Volleyball. They had a good start but we came back and took over destroying them by like 7 points. It’s not my favourite sport but I enjoyed and played quite good.

In our second game we played Mallacoota in Netball and we just dominated again. I had NO clue of what I was doing and how to play the game but we still were the victors.
The surprising game 3 was played against our own school which was playing for the opposition and we ended our two winning streaks by drawing the game. I had few opportunities just like everyone else but I had the most and didn’t put the damage on the scoreboard.
Last but not least we played Basketball, the one I was looking forward to playing. Surprisingly I didn’t play that good when I should have taken control. But anyway my team just absolutely conquered the game without trouble.
Our win/loss ratio was 3-1-0. This day was an enormous day to meet new people and ask them questions about what it’s like for them living in the country. I’ve never done stuff like this before, playing those sports besides Basketball. I was trying to convince the teachers to play football but it didn’t work out.

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.
