Today I went for a half day bike ride with my group 2B. It consists of two schools Lakes Entrance and my own school Maffra Secondary. I took on the role of leader and led everyone along the road, it was daunting at first but I soon got the feel of things and ended up having a good time. When I got back I ate some cake because it was Taylor and Busta’s birthday and it was good. The two schools in my expo group are getting along really well, almost feels like they are part of my extended family.

Today I had my CPR exam, in one word, it was daunting. I was scared when I got there even though I knew I could just keep doing the exam until I got it right, I still felt like I had to succeed the first time. It’s weird, when you’re doing it, you don’t really think of it as a practice, you think of it as though you’re actually helping someone. I hope I never have to use first aid, but it would be an amazing feeling to save someone’s life.

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.
