Alanna and I are in 2A and we have recently come back from Expo!

Our experiences on the expo were amazing but difficult weather-wise. Our expo group was dropped off at the Yeerung River and we headed off to Dock Inlet where we were camping for the night. The first leg of the journey was going through a mildly habitable track followed by a long walk on the beach in the RAIN! Once we saw that white pole that indicated our track towards the camping ground we all cheered in happiness as we were almost there. Once we got to the camping site, we set up our tents and had Milo’s and Cup-a-Soup’s which warmed us up. Following from that we made our dinners on Trangias and the meals were actually quite good. Before we went to bed, we went on a short night walk back to the sand dunes of the beach. We reviewed our day there, went back to campsite and slept.

The very next day, we all woke up knowing the walk was going to be easier than the day before. We packed up everything and headed off for home. Once we saw those two buses at the end of the track everyone screamed out in joy. It was challenging but overall, it was an awesome experience. Everyone in our expo group is looking forward to the next one.

This is Alanna and Sean signing off.

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.
