Our Caving Experience - Eamonn and Maggie Print E-mail

Yesterday the group of core one went caving. Our caving experience started off walking through the Royal cave. It was really interesting to experience what it was like down in the caves. We started off walking through the main cave learning about the way the cave was formed and how stalactites and stalagmites were made. After lunch we went down to the Wild cave. Once we arrived there we split into two groups and then headed off down into the caves with our instructor.

Our Caving Experience

Being down in the caves was a really enjoyable time. It was frightening at times crossing some of the obstacles but we all faced our fears and made it through safely. Our guide explained to us the different types of caves and caving techniques once we were down there. The caving experience was one of my favourite times at Snowy River Campus.

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 three 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".

We pay our respects to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, their Elders past and present, and especially whose children attend our school.
