Enviro Bike Ride Print E-mail
Jayden - Enviro Bike RideToday we started our day with a drive out to a logging coupe near Cabbage Tree Palms. We got to our destination at the logging coupe, we got out and heard the birds whistling and chirping. We went for a little walk to the middle where we had a talk. We set off to explore the coupe and saw lots of charcoal and dead trees.

We answered a few questions about the environment there. We also had a discussion about whether logging was good or bad. We got our bikes then off we went on a 26km bike ride. The first few kilometers were hard but we got the hang of it. Then we stopped for lunch. After lunch we set off again on our massive ride. We got to the end of the Cabbage Tree Palms road; none of us were willing to give up. We traveled the next few kilometers on a rocky dirt road until we hit the main road where some of us were in a bit of pain but kept on going. We hit the dirt again at Marlo Plains road. A few big hills came upon us, some were really tired but kept on going. We reached the main road again. We were on the main stretch and saw the sign that said 300m to go till we hit the drive-way, 1km up the drive-way we go, we touch home base. We emptied the trailer and cleaned our bikes, packed the trailer back up and hit the showers.

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 three 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".
