Saving the World through Community Service Print E-mail

On the 25th of November groups 1B, 2A and 2B participated in community service. 1B walked along the beach near East Cape, we picked up rubbish as we went along that we then recycled what we could. We also collected sea spurge an introduced species of plant. Everybody gave a helping hand to find the smallest to biggest sea spurges we could find. This helped the beach by delaying their spread over the sand and soon taking over. Along our journey we came across a blue tongue lizard.

Core 2 went to Point Ricardo to do community service, they walked down the beach and back collecting whatever came in their sight. Once returning from their service they sorted out what they had found on their journey. By collecting this rubbish we have helped to save our world, it only may have a small impact but at least it is a start.

Also on the 25th of November 1B and 2A had passports at different stages throughout the day. 1B were very determined to get criteria’s completed as well as working on the creative side. This was easy as there was silence and hardly anybody talked. Everybody made the most of the lesson to get as much done as possible and we believe that part of the reason was not wanting to do any on rest day. 2A also had passports and did great, whilst doing this there was a lot of talking going on about where they were at in their passports unlike the other group.

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.
