The Mighty Marlo Challenge

On only the third day of being here at the Snowy River Campus we were faced with the mighty Marlo Challenge; a challenge so grand that I had to add a 'mighty' to it which barely grasps its magnitude. Most of us dressed up for the occasion. I for one had to focus on the intimidating task ahead. We were told to bring our cameras and it was left at that.  We were taken in buses, some of us had to wait and play ping pong. But when we all got down there we were given the task of taking pictures of things one of the members in our group had to remember. We all ran around franticly searching, endlessly searching for the most points but at the end of the day the worthy winners were…were…the Warriors at a legendary score 208!

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.
