Enviro Bike Print E-mail

 Today 2B had Enviro Bike. We got driven down to a dirt road and we went into an area where the logging used to happen. It was full of dead trees that had been burnt and the ground was all wrecked from the heavy machinery constantly driving over on it.  

 

 

We discussed our initial feelings of the place and we talked about the logging industry and what their effect is on the environment. After that we geared up with our vests and helmets and jumped onto our bikes. My bike’s name was ‘Binky’. Probably the greatest bike in the bunch too. We rode down the dirt track and it started to rain. The mud flicked up the back of us and we all had this strip of dirt down our backs! We stopped at the Cabbage Tree Palms Reserve and we walked through this really cool rainforest type track. Everything was so green. When we’d finished the track we hopped back on our bikes and kept on riding until lunch. By this time we were only a few kilometres in and still had a fair way to go! The ride got easier from then on, we started to ride on roads and it became less uphill so we got more time to really enjoy the ride. We rode through all the puddles and it flicked up in the face of the person behind us which we thought was hilarious. When it came to the end of our ride we packed up and took a well needed shower. This was one of the best days I’ve had here at Snowy. It was awesome!

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".

Our school community acknowledges the Gunaikurnai, Bidawel and Gundijmara people as the traditional custodians of the land upon which our school campuses are 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.
