Community T-shirts

Today was such a relaxing and effortless day for everyone. It was the perfect day for the t-shirt committee to begin dip dying our shirts. Everyone played a role in the day, it was hard work trying to make the top half of the top stay white but things didn't exactly go to plan…  although the shirts turned out great in the end. Through trial and error we were all able to make some crazy purple dip dyed shirts. In the end we were exhausted but the perfect way to end our hot day was a water fight!! Everyone enjoyed themselves and put in 100% effort to make our t-shirts look cool and the end result will look just as great.

Day Before Expo Print E-mail

Well tomorrow we have our second and last expo. I’m excited because we aren’t just hiking we are also canoeing. I think our expo group is going to be fine with all of it we get along pretty well and we haven’t really argued that much yet. During the paddle we have sorted out we are going to have a strong canoer and a not so strong canoer together so we don’t separate too much. I’m a little nervous about it because it’s 3 days but I will have a great time and I think it will all go well. I think we will all work really well as a team. One thing I am scared about is leaving something I need here at campus.

Bike Carnival Print E-mail
Bike Carnival

Today was our rest day and this is possibly the busiest rest day we had so far. We had the bike carnival in the morning which runs races and time trials. It was a great day and everyone was getting involved in the racing. It was held at 10 o'clock and went for 2 hours. There were 6 teams who signed up for the race and there were two people in each team. There were a total of 12 people who raced today. It was great to see some of the finest bikers getting themselves involved today. The prizes were a bike frame for the top 4 finest bikers and they get to keep it as a trophy.

Will's LLP Day Print E-mail
Will's LLP Day

LLP day yesterday was a big success. Everybody had a great time and all the presentations went well. I would like to thank Kayla, Jennifer, Sonya, Johari, Anie and Xavier for their great contribution to the LLP committee. The day ran smoothly thanks to them. The kids themselves were amazing; they listened respectfully and they persevered through the whole day with the same amount of energy. I know that I made some new friends within the Marlo and Orbost communities and I hope that they got something out of it. I learnt that kids have a really short attention span and that they never stop moving. So if I did it again I would keep the presentation short and to the point with a few games thrown in to keep them interested. But all in all, a very successful day.

Unrelenting Walls Print E-mail
Unrelenting Walls

1a ran as fast as they could but their limbs were light and stiff. They found it hard to move in the slightest and the constant walls moving through them, pushing them back and every so often they would flail around but to no avail. They were thrown back to the start to get all the way back there was no finish that I could see. They would only move forward a few meters then get thrown back ruthlessly by the unrelenting walls. But there was something wrong, they were smiling as the walls exploding around them. I must have hit every wall there was no end to them. The walls kept forming around them but only in front of them. An unrelenting force of transparent walls, they finally gave up with shards of the walls falling off them. I still don’t understand what they were doing even after they announced the name of this supposed sport; they said "it's called surfing"!

School for Student Leadership - Student Equity Fund The Student Equity Fund enables people who share our vision of transformative education to contribute to this outstanding program and help ensure it is affordable and accessible for all students in the public education system.


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.
