Bush Dance

Last night was Bush Dance Night. We all crowded into the common room, me in my overalls and flannel shirt, and awaited our instructions. Ms Beck got some eager volunteers to show us the steps to some good ol’ country dancing. The steps did seem simple enough when the demonstrators did it, but we soon found out that it was not as easy as it looked. Brimming with enthusiasm, we all linked arms with our partners and attempted to copy the dancing… minor chaos ensued. A lot of people left the night nursing broken toes but laughing as we remembered all of us uniting to do the Macarena at the end of the night. It was so much fun, we all agreed, and created memories I am sure we will remember for a long time to come.

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.
