2A's Adventure to Dock Inlet Print E-mail

Dock Inlet at SunsetWe all woke up early before our alarms, as we were so excited for our first expedition to Dock Inlet. We had just spent the previous day preparing for our first expedition. 

2A decided in the morning to take the first route along the beach so we would have a tail wind on the way their and the walk back wouldn’t be as strenuous. It was an easy walk for everyone as we where all very strong and committed to completing our team and personal goals. We created our own acronym to remind us of our well thought out goals P.H.E.R.P- Positivity, Helpfulness, Encouragement, Respect and Patience.

As we walked along the bush tracks Ms. Stevens would show us all amazing new plants that we had never heard of. For example, some being the tallest moss in the world and some extremely rare plants and animals that only grow in pristine environment, such as Dock Inlet and Cape Conran. Once we arrived at Dock Inlet we set up camp within ten minutes and we all rushed down to the inlet to have a refreshing swim after a hard day’s walk. After our review of the day we all hit the deck and woke up early the next day.

The whole team was packed up and ready to walk by nine o’clock and we left soon after taking our last route along the power line track. After our first kilometer we stopped to do some much needed stretches. Mr. Morton showed us some really interesting ones, which made all our sore muscles be relieved of the aches and pains. As we walked, we passed a few Duck Orchards, which was really special as they are very rare and their flower is quite spectacular. We got back to the bus at Yeerung River at two o’clock, which was quite early for most expo groups, so we felt pretty special. All in all it was a really great first expo.

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.
