Half Day Ride Print E-mail
Written by Megan- Tyrrell College   

Today we had the ‘Half Day Ride’ and it was good although the steep hills and the sand were very tough and challenging. We departed the Campus at about 1:40 and rode down to the main road we then took the Power Line road just off the main road.

For the first km the track was not too bad because of the rain we had recently. When we got past the Aerodrome Road the conditions quickly changed, all of a sudden we had some massive hills to go up and down, we got to practice our “attack” position down one of the big hills. We went past the protea farm, it had lots of different types of flowers and it was very beautiful. We also had to go past a Bee Farm. Shortly after that Miss Van Dijk broke her chain meaning that we had to head for home (the CAMPUS). It was a nice trip back and we were almost to the front entrance when we found an echidna. That made my day because it was beautiful. We then got to go from the front entrance to the shed at our own pace and it was fun because we all went super fast from the hill. Overall, it was a great day.

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.
