Peter's Second Expo Print E-mail

 

Hey it's Peter again,
A few days ago I had expo 2.
We walked from the school to the beach and walked to Frenches Narrows.
There we met 1A and got their canoes, as they were dropped off on Mt Raymond and had to walk back to SRC and paddled to Corringle Beach where we stayed at a campsite and played a few games.

After dinner we walked over a sand dune to Corringle Beach and did review and had the king tide nearly washing over us.
When we woke up we jumped into the canoes after a quick pack up and paddled down the Snowy River.
After a few mishaps and lunch we arrived at our second campsite and made the cow fence and setup our tents.
We relaxed as it had been a long day, but dinner was a strong want for everyone and we soon had everything cooking.
My Green Thai Curry was too spicy for me and I ended up not eating dinner because my throat was on fire.
After 5 bottles of water, I ran review, incorporating a dance at the end of review.
The next morning we woke up at around 5:45am and left by 7:35am to get back in the canoes and paddle across Lake Curlip and drop off the canoes.
After a short break we headed off towards Mt Raymond.
Mt Raymond was a challenge because it was mostly uphill and really steep.
But we made really good progress and ended up climbing Mt Raymond in 2-3 hours and had lunch on the peak with a beautiful lookout across Marlo and some of Orbost.
By the end we had canoed 20kms and walked 10kms, so a massive effort for 1B.
After an hour long drive back to SRC, the real challenge began.
Clean up.
But surprisingly we got that done fairly quickly and got to have nice, hot showers.
Peter

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.
