Dock Inlet Expedition Print E-mail

Ben: During the past week 1A went on expo to Dock Inlet. It was a great experience because it was my first camping trip that I been on and it was fun. The highlight of the expo was when we were walking along the path and we came across a fallen tree because we had to scramble around this up the dunes and find a place to get back on track! This was a highlight because it was a little challenge for us and it was fun to climb over and tackle the obstacle. We walked 7km along the beach the first day and 7km back through the bush on the second.

Amy: Last week 1B also went on Expo to Dock Inlet. We had to carry 10kg packs 7kms along the beach. As we were about to leave for lunch at the beach we spotted whales in the water it was pretty amazing. When we got to Dock Inlet, we set up our tents and the toilet there, no funny stories like Bens. We swam in the inlet, it was really cold but the sun was nice. On the way back from Dock inlet we saw more whales and a goanna swimming.

Yesterday we were student leaders and we completed our community goal to get everyone early on time for head count, which we were very stoked about.

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.
