1Amazing Expo

Last Monday 1Amazing went on our first expo! We all set off about nine o’clock, excited and ready to get going. The packs were huge, but no one complained, and we all supported each other along the beach, the wind whipping the sand against our legs. At one point the tide came in so far that we could no longer go along the beach – so we had to climb a dune. We all hauled each other up and continued down to the beach, finding many odd little things along the way.

On day two we rose early and headed back along the power pole track in the hot weather. We saw two snakes along the way, laying on the track, and not moving until we came close. We walked about 6km the next day, and cheered as we got back to our starting point – we had completed our first expo!
Everyone worked really well as a team for our fist expo, and all stepped up to the challenges offered. It proved just how well we could work together and brought us all closer together as a group. #1amazing

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.
