Marlo Challenge by Oisin Print E-mail

Yesterday we did the Marlo Challenge which was really fun. We got to run around Marlo and take photos of stuff that has already been taken and we got points on how difficult the object was to find and if it a was good shot.

We came back for lunch and then it went to the afternoon class which was passports so we got to sit in our rooms and go on our laptops. Over all, the day went really well and most of us had lots of fun. For tea we got to choose who people got to sit with because some people always sit with the same people over and over again. I think the night went really well and I enjoyed it.

Later for evening class we watched a movie called the ‘Rabbit-Proof Fence’ it was a really good but sad movie because it was how the white people treated the black people in the older days in Australia. We have not finished the movie and we are going to watch the rest tonight which is going to be good.

Well that all I have to say about yesterday, I hope the people reading this have a good 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.
