 EPIC Expo
On Thursday 11th March 2B left to go to on a three day canoe/hike to Mt Raymond. We started at about 10:30 with our heavy packs on our backs and set out for the beach. Once we were on the beach we hiked for 3km, where we met up with 2A who had almost finished their expedition. There we swapped into canoe’s, had lunch and started our canoeing journey. We all hopped into our canoe and paddled to the Marlo Angling club where we picked up our water for the night, paddled across the river to our camping spot and settled down to a wonderful sunset.

Day 2 of our expo, we woke up at 6am and had breakfast. Then we packed up all our gear into our bags and started to head off for the day to our next destination. The day was pretty hard with us having headwinds the whole way up the Brodribb River. We stopped occasionally, switching partners to get a faster and stronger team of canoe partners happening. We stopped for lunch about 2km out of where we were camping for the night. We stayed in the middle of a paddock with cows and lots of mosquitoes.

Our last day of Expo was pretty tiring. We woke up at 5:00am and sang happy birthday to Sam and packed all of our stuff up by 7 o’clock which we were on the water, trying to beat the 30km headwinds which were coming at late morning to early afternoon. We only had to canoe for 3 and a half kilometres on the first day, past the Curlip and onto dry land. There we hiked for about 6km where we reached the top of Mt Raymond. Everyone was glad to see the bus when it came to pick us up. We all enjoyed our last expo together and it was a really great time to spend our last few weeks as a team together.

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.
