Juanita's Raft Building Experience Print E-mail
Written by Juanita- Roxburgh College   

The 1B PiratesJuanita and AmyHey I’m Juanita from Roxburgh College.  Yesterday on the 21/11/10 1B had raft building. Basically your group is given a bunch of rope, logs and barrels and instructed to build a raft that will carry you all (ten people) to the other side of the water in order to find a map and get the treasure!






1B were the first group to have raft building and we did well until the raft got in the water. The barrels we had tied underneath had popped out and floated away making one side of the raft sink. Ben and Jack were kicked off the raft so that they could save us all by pulling the raft to safe, dry land. Once on land we found the maps with great navigation from Delaney and recovered the sweet icy treasure.  It was quite fun especially because we were dressed as pirates including the beard and makeup. People walking past thought it was quite funny to see. Not only did we sink but we were also shown up by eight year olds. Kids from the local cubs were there also and had made a raft too. They made it across and back with no problems. Oh well 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.
