Marlo Challenge Print E-mail

On the 13-5-2010 everyone from the SRC dressed up in their teams theme and got ready to head into Marlo for the annual Marlo Challenge. It started off with everyone sending up one member from each team to write down some hints about some of the pictures the teachers had taken. The pictures had been given a scoring system with the harder ones being given a score of ten and the easier ones were given a one and the others were put in the middle somewhere.

With each team prepared with their piece of paper with the notes of the pictures on it, the race began with different teams splitting up trying to make sure they don’t give away any of the pictures to other teams. My group (The Extreme Footy supporters) picked one of the three zones to work in and worked around that area. We also had people in our team who had been in Marlo before and that helped our group. We then got stuck and each team had to go back and return to the home base at least once to show that they were ok. We decided that we needed more information on some of the pictures so we ran back quickly. We got more information on the pictures but it didn’t really help us and it showed in the results because we came second last. Apart from what the scores were, I’m sure everyone enjoyed themselves in the Marlo Challenge because I know I enjoyed the challenge. I hope the ‘Pirates of the Snowy River’ enjoyed their well earned victory.

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.
