Marlo Challenge and Coastal Environments Print E-mail
Marlo Challenge

Yesterday Kat and I were student leaders. It was a really fun day because we had the Marlo Challenge in the morning. In the afternoon Core 1 had Coastal Environments and Core 2 had POL prep.

We had Marlo challenge in the morning and that was really fun getting off campus for the morning. We had to walk around Marlo to take photos of the certain things that we saw. You had to write a description or just memorise the pictures then go walk around Marlo find the object and take a photo from the same angle. Dean was in the ‘Smarties’ group and Kat one of the other teams. Kat’s team was a bit better than the Smarties because they didn’t come last. The Ninja Turtle’s team won the day taking the victory by less than 10 points. So congrats to the Ninja Turtles.

POL prep was really fun because we were able to work on and almost finish our POLs and that is really handy because they are due on Friday. I didn’t really know what to do and how to present it but I just got all of my information together then I will work out how to go from there, I hope before it is due. The class was really relaxed because everyone knew that there wasn’t very much time to complete them so they had to do as much as possible. My goal was to work really hard and to get most of my POL done and I think I did that really well because that lesson was really fun.

So in the afternoon I had Coastal Environments, we went to East Cape Conran and we built sea creations from the sea weeds, shells and sticks. Some people did a sand fish and some just did their own creations but it’s about originality anyway, it’s really fun and a good creative afternoon.

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.
