Orienteering Print E-mail

Today, everyone competed in the orienteering challenge. Everyone got their gaiters on, wore their best shoes and got ready to go. People formed up into teams, and then had the tricky task of thinking up a team name. Then after each team chose a course to complete, they set off into the wilderness. Soon after heading out, people discovered what can only be described as a swamp, and in said swamp lay many hole-punches, and then it became apparent that wearing ones nicest Nikes may not have been the greatest plan. However, after a few snakes were fended off and some tears were shed over destroyed shoes, everyone returned with at least a slight smile on their faces. But, alas, our efforts were in vain, because one team completed all of the courses in close to record time, and we all wore our mud with pride. It was a fun afternoon out and I had a great time.

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.
