Jen's Spirit Spot Print E-mail

The last few days at the Snowy River Campus have been filled with excitement and adventure. There's never a dull moment at Snowy River, we are always busy doing something like canoeing, surfing, snorkelling, having guest speakers, movie making and my favourite, visiting the relaxing sand dunes. We have Spirit Spot every Saturday where we walk to the sand dunes and do our daily DEARR there. We concentrate on our senses and enjoy the calming surroundings.
Here's one of my entries;

Senses at the sand dunes;
I am sitting on top of the slope of the sand dunes and have an amazing view above everyone.
I feel at peace with myself, very calm, relaxed.
I feel undisturbed and worry-less.
I feel the slight breeze flowing through my hair.
I see everyone spread out nicely, doing their work as they should.
I see the tree tops and beyond that is the vast open ocean.
I hear the serenading, majestic sounds of the ocean waves.
I hear the chirping of the native birds.
I smell the unpolluted, pure, fresh air.

Despite the struggle, hardship and sore legs we have to deal with getting to the dunes, it is all worth it in the end. I know I will miss going to the sand dunes when my SRC journey ends so I am making the most of every visit. Appreciating the outdoors and nature while I can.

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.
