Ride to Marlo

Today saw 2B do a 16km bike ride into Marlo and back. They broke into two groups consisting of six people each. The ride into Marlo saw the group battling a fierce headwind, but the group persisted only stopping for a quick photo at one the lookouts. On arrival they flew down the hill towards the jetty in order to take a group photo. It was only after the photo that they realised that the hill was a lot steeper going up than it was going down. They eventually got to the top and with sore legs they decided to crash at the local playground. With renewed enthusiasm the group played merrily on the child sized play equipment. After recouping each group set of towards home, with the promise of afternoon tea awaiting them back at Campus, the groups quickly pushed on. With the tail wind behind them they made excellent time, making it back with ten minutes to spare. The group quickly put away the gear and moved inside to dine upon freshly baked, still warm banana muffins. Mmmmm.

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.
