Mystery at Shady Acres Print E-mail
Caving at Bucan Caves

Last night we were fortunate enough to see a play performed by Orbost Secondary College, Mystery at Shady Acres. We all jumped in the 'party buses' and drove down to Orbost to watch the play. We all really enjoyed the play and agreed that it was funny and well presented.

2A just got back from expo and currently 2B is out on expo. 1A has been busy doing passports and CLP while 1B has been out on Water Watch. On Monday core 1 went caving at the Buchan caves. A fun time was had by all and we all really enjoyed the challenges presented. Core 1 has undergone first aid tests and we are all now trained professionals in performing CPR.

CLP Presentations Day Print E-mail

The day started with the entire community cleaning the building and the grounds. After morning tea, our school representatives started to arrive and we showed them around the place and the work that we have completed during our time here. When it came to lunch time we opened the day with a speech about SRC and our CLP’s. Everyone enjoyed lunch as they got the chance to catch up with their home school liaison teachers.

After lunch, we got the room set up and had a HDTV link up with the other two campuses. The first MC’s (Millie and Maddi) ran the first half of the presentations and kicked it off by introducing Box Hill HS for the first presentation. It eventually went: Box Hill, Bright P-12, Brentwood, Shepparton, and Hume Central. After the MC’s were changed to Danigan and Chris, they conducted the second half of the presentations. It then went: Emerald, Mansfield, Mt Beauty and then finally Upper Yarra.

Everyone enjoyed the presentations and successfully presented their CLP. The day concluded with every school called up one at a time and pledged to their liaison teachers that they will complete their CLP. Jamie then concluded with a nice speech. After the presentations, the guests stayed and enjoyed a nice afternoon tea and a chat with their students. The day was very successful and everyone enjoyed themselves.

Bogans Take Over Snowy Print E-mail
Bogans Take Over Snowy

On the 30th of August, we had a rest day. The day started off with half of the school going to the beach for surf, whilst the other half stayed back and worked on their Passports. The afternoon came and the cooking committee put their theme on display….BOGANS!

For entrees we had garlic bread, mains were Chicken Parmigiana with a side of Hash browns and Veggies. Everyone dressed up for the occasion, the girls had thick orange foundation and slug eyebrows and boys were rocking the socks and thongs. We set out all the tables like a pub, and got each pair of roommates, to sit with another pair of roommates, which was a great way to let everyone interact with each other. A special thanks to the cooking committee for making it such a great night, Ms Wade and Ms Pascall for cooking us the food and Matt Shem and Helena Bishop for volunteering to lend a hand.

For evening class, we had Tony Briggs come in and talk to us about the making of The Sapphires. He showed us some photos and videos on set and it was a really fun and interesting way to spend the night.

The Biggest and Best Day Ever Print E-mail

The students at SRC held one of the biggest days the school has ever had. Nearly 200 primary school students came for a day of fun and learning. We were the MC's for the day and held the opening and closing ceremonies with the help from a megaphone that we didn't want to let go of. Primary school students learnt about the environment, the indigenous population, teamwork and arts and drama. Everyone enjoyed such an amazing day and held a big celebration afterwards for a great success!

Today Was a Busy Day All Round Print E-mail

We had 1B; the only group on campus doing First Aid in the morning, we split up into pairs and taught everyone else how to handle different sorts of painful accidents that may occur to people around them. We also had passports in the afternoon.

Whilst on campus we did a few jobs like putting away all the surfing gear for all of core 2. For morning tea and lunch the lucky teens on campus enjoyed saladas with a range of toppings and amazing toasted sandwiches made by Ms Pascall and Jess. 1A set off on their adventure, a 3 day expo of walking and canoeing. They will be doing around 30km in the 3 days. This includes 2 nights out in the wilderness fending for themselves. And last but not least we had all of core 2 hitting up the Buchan Caves.

In the evening, core 2 had a big class on metaphors with Ms Beck and 1B had passports in their rooms or common areas. Overall, we had a great day which everyone on campus seemed to enjoy.

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.
