Expo 1 Print E-mail

Today 2A came back from Expo One, that’s my expo group. On Saturday the 8th 2A left at around 9:10 to start on our journey to Dock Inlet. Dock Inlet is approximately 8km away from where we got dropped off. By the time we started walking towards Dock Inlet it was about 10:10am. 1A at Dock Inlet

With our heavy packs we left the bus and began walking, the walk was very pretty and for about 1.5km it was all grass and trees. After that it was 6.5km of beach, it was pretty tough walking along the beach and most of our group felt like we were going nowhere. I think we did pretty well as we only stopped about 10 times along the beach. We were all so relieved to see the reflector pole that lead us towards Dock Inlet. It wasn’t very far till we reached our camping spot. When we got to our camping spot we all set up camp and we got there so early that we could go for a swim, even though the water was ice cold. My favourite part of the Expo was the review under the stars, there were so many in the sky, it was mind blowing. The 2nd day wasn’t nearly as bad as the first day. On the second day we all entertained each other with riddles and putting rocks in each other’s packs. I think that we all did really well on the Expo as there was surprisingly hardly any complaining. It’s taken me a while to write this, so Expo 2 is coming up very soon. Everyone is so excited.2A IS THE BEST!

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.
