Expo Skills

My favourite activity from this week so far would be our first lesson of Expo Skills.

We had a talk over our past experiences and were preparing ourselves for the upcoming actual expedition that is going to be happening in a few weeks.  We got geared up with our hiking bags, tents, food and were being sun smart with our hats and sunscreen all over ourselves. Just before morning tea we took off. But before we took off, everyone in the team was given a role to take control of. Xavier was our navigator and he did a great job of guiding the team through the bushes and around.

Overall, everyone worked well together and helped each other out and had a great time. We all learnt something new, like how to set up a tent. We finished our lesson off with a mini concert that we all very much enjoyed on our way back.

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.
