Merrinda's Day Print E-mail
Written by Merrinda- Red Cliffs SC   

Merrinda and Co.On Saturday the 23rd of October I was student leader with Caleb Westhead. Everybody gets a chance at being student leader, and it’s a big role to take on because it keeps the community flowing and it’s a big responsibility. I believe I have become a more confident person from taking on this role and I will respect teachers more from now on because I know that it is quite difficult to run a class. 


Last week we had bush dance night. We learnt the heal toe, barnyard and bush dance. Everyone was nervous and we looked really silly dancing but I think everyone enjoyed it. We got to know everyone better and overall it was a great night.
Today we had Marlo Challenge, which is where you dress up in weird outfits and my group were called the Unco Tourist. We looked really silly but it was funny and unfortunately it was raining so our outfits couldn’t be seen. We were shown photos that were places or objects around Marlo and we made notes to try to memorize what the photo looked like and we had to go find that object or place somewhere in Marlo and take a photo of it. Points were allocated depending on how close our photo looked to the real photo. Our group was surprised to come second; it was a really fun 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.
