Amazing Expo

I have just gotten back from expo and I have to say I was of the great experiences of my life. I walked about 8 kilometres a day for two days, had the scale a wall of sand and had to sleep in a small tent with three people. But it was so amazing to be doing it with the people I now consider family. Before expo the team bickered and argued while doing small activities but at expo everyone had their roles and everyone knew what they had to do so we just clicked as a team. We gave each other space when needed and supported them when they needed. Many people were pushed to their limits both physically and mentally, all they wanted to do was give up but they kept going strong. I believe I have gotten closer with the boys from Portland, sharing a tent and hearing about what each other have been through and our own separate experiences just opened up the relationship immensely. I am so happy to be facing the rest of the experience with a group like this and I can't wait for the next expo.

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.
