Written by Meg- Mallacoota P-12 College   

Lovely Ladies of ZincWith only four full days remaining here, we the students are busy completing work such as our passport and rehearsing our CLP presentations for tomorrow. Tomorrow is our big day where liaison teachers from all over the state come to see their schools presentation. With all this going on it’s easy to forget how little time we have left here. In this blog I would just like to tell you about some of my highlights from term 4, 2010.

Lily's POL Day Print E-mail
Written by Lily- Gisborne   

Today 2B had Presentation of Learning (POL). It is a day where we all take it in turns to do a 15- 20 minute presentation, of how we have grown as individuals and what we have learnt over the term being here at SRC.

It is full of memories about our time there and we got to present in any way we wanted to.

For my POL I made a big book, full of the things I have learnt here. Things like leadership, teamwork, my goals and personal achievements. I also ran a 10 minute lesson on karate, which was pretty fun. That was thanks to Mr Francis for teaching me in the mornings.

Other people did PowerPoint’s, movies, stories, played instruments and games to demonstrate the skills they learnt while being there, which made the day really interesting.

Over all the day went really well, tho it was a bit sad, as it reminded us that we have very little time left here at Snowy.

Richard and co canoeingOn Monday the 8th of November our expo team 1A (Irymple and Reservoir) set off on expo number 2! It was straight after Parent Visiting Weekend so I was really drained when we started! I was really excited to be canoeing again, because the first time we canoed I loved it. I knew there were going to be a lot of lowlights and highlights from the expo, but mainly highlights so I got myself pumped and ready to go for expo.

Chloe's Caving Adventure Print E-mail
Written by Chloe- Mallacoota P-12   

2A in Wilson's CaveOne sunny day on the 22/11/10 a group called 2A from SRC took a day trip into Buchan to go wild caving. We started out walking through a paddock and eventually came to a hole surrounded by rocks; this was the entrance to Wilsons cave. First to enter the cave was Brodie, followed by myself. At the start I was a bit nervous but mostly pumped.

Our communityOn the 13th of November while we were student leaders, we had our formal. It was an awesome night!! We started off with a formal dinner sitting girl boy girl boy. Everyone got really dressed up for it. After dinner we hit the dance floor, starting off with the heel and toe, the nut bush, YMCA and the time warp. We then proceeded onto absolutely busting out! Everyone showed off their moves; even Mrs Francis with the worm! Everyone was buzzing, even after the music stopped. It was a great night to let loose and have fun!

Sarah and Sarah’s LLP day Print E-mail
Written by Sarah- Gisborne and Sarah- Irymple   

Hands up at LLP DayYesterday, the 3rd of November 2010, the two of us were student leaders for our Local Learning Project (LLP) day. 21 students from the Marlo Primary School, grade 2-6, came onto campus for the day.  At first the kids were a bit shy but after a few games they got really involved and inquisitive. We were split into groups of four for the day and each of the groups watched three presentations, about thing in the local area (marine and wildlife, bush tucker and outdoor safety), that we had prepared in the last week or so.

Lucky Last Print E-mail
Written by Jo- Irymple Sc and Ben M- Red Cliffs   

It was finally our turn to be student leaders as we were lucky last. Miss Moore gave us the challenge of running DEARR and evening class- Phone Calls.

DEARR went well and we believe we did a good job of explaining what it was we were reflecting on. After DEARR Miss Moore went through what we had to do for evening class. The 3 of us decided to play a game outside but it started to rain.

At first we were feeling unsure but up for the challenge. For the first 10 minutes of the class we organised a game of Silent Ball. The game was fun although it took longer than we expected.

The class was enjoyable although at first our fellow classmates looked confused due to our explanation. We learnt how to make business phone calls and most of us did well, all thanks to our excellent teaching.

We benefited from the opportunity to lead and we are glad that we rose to the challenge. Thanks to core 1 for being easy to teach and especially Miss Moore for giving us the chance.

Merrinda's Day Print E-mail
Written by Merrinda- Red Cliffs SC   

Merrinda and Co.On Saturday the 23rd of October I was student leader with Caleb Westhead. Everybody gets a chance at being student leader, and it’s a big role to take on because it keeps the community flowing and it’s a big responsibility. I believe I have become a more confident person from taking on this role and I will respect teachers more from now on because I know that it is quite difficult to run a class.

Photography with David Tatnall Print E-mail
Written by Richard- Reservoir District SC   

Salmon RocksOn the 30th of October my expo team, 1A, had photography with David Tatnall. I was also student leader on that day so the day was really great and one of my goals was to get the most out of my photography lesson and that goal went great. Before we went out to the rock pools we were taught how to use the schools’ SLR camera. The whole camera is all manual, but it still has the same settings as a digital camera would, it’s just harder to use. We all had to split up into groups of 3 because there were only 4 SLR cameras, and there was only 48 shots to be taken. It didn’t take us long to figure out how the camera worked so before we knew it we were heading to the rock pools.

RedRox Epic Expo Print E-mail
Written by Stephannie J- Roxburgh College   

Dock InletOn the 19th of October Roxburgh College and Red Cliffs SC set off on Expo! It was quite an extraordinary expo with lots of thrills and one or two spills. Merrinda led our little team of just 10 students into a wonderful and mysterious place called Dock Inlet. Along the way we all encouraged each other and helped out when needed. There was lots of fun to be had and we had all of it! One of those moments being Mr. Quin getting his arm stuck in the sand. We tried to have sing-a-longs on our journey but it didn’t quite work as we were all puffing and could never remember many words to the songs we tried to sing.

Intro to Surfing Print E-mail
Written by Carina- Red Cliffs SC   

Surfing in the rainOn Friday the 15th of October 1B went surfing at Cape Conram. It was amazing! We got taught by Mel and Pete who were very experienced surfers. They went through each step one at a time and demonstrated it all very well. They first showed us how to catch a wave and then we copied them in the sand. We may have looked pretty silly lying on the sand pretending to swim but it was helpful to get the practice before we went in the water.

Sport's Day at Cann River Print E-mail
Written by Eddie- Reservoir District   

On the 21st of October it was our Interschool Sports team’s day when we travelled to Cann River College and so did Mallacoota College.  Well before we left we’d been put into random teams and 1 of our teams had to be on the opposing team.
There were 8 teams and I was in team 1. Everyone had to participate in every sport which included Basketball, Volleyball, Netball and Soccer.
First up I had Cann River in Volleyball. They had a good start but we came back and took over destroying them by like 7 points. It’s not my favourite sport but I enjoyed and played quite good.

Bridge Building with 1B Print E-mail
Written by Jack- Red Cliffs Secondary   

our bridgeOn the 8th of October 1B went bridge building. It was really fun and it was nothing like anything I’ve done before. We made a bridge out of wood and rope and tied them together to make four HUGE tripods! We then moved the tripods into a line one after the other to get to the Kayak. It was also even more difficult because we had to build the bridge without touching the water.

intro to bikes Print E-mail
Written by Amy- Roxburgh   

On the 13th of October I had the class intro to bikes. In this class we learnt about how to maintain a bike. We also learned how to use the attack position while going downhill. My friend Tyson and I had some great fun. We had the funniest time while learning about the attack position, because we had to ride over to pieces of wood and I almost fell over!!  After we did a few exercises that helped us use our brakes and which gears would help us more while going uphill or downhill, we then went for a little ride around the campus. While doing this we rode uphill. This was hard for me because I’m really bad at going uphill! But later on everyone had a laugh when we played the slow race, we had to race to the line but the slowest person wins. I came second in the first round and third in the second round. But overall it was a great class.
