Today was the Enviro Bike Ride. In the morning, we got in the bus with 2B, who were on the way to Expo 2. They dropped us of, about 30kms from Snowy River Campus and we basically had to ride home. We rode for hours, on sealed roads and unsealed roads (and some that hardly counted as roads at all). We stopped at the picturesque Cabbage Tree Creek. Birds called from their hidden perches amongst the trees and reeds swayed like mermaid hair in the creek. We all shared something special we had found along our walk. Anie shared a frond of Maiden Fern and James just said being with us was special. When it came to my turn, I said, “I love the sounds of the forest.” And a car chose that moment to start in the car-park next to us.

Overall, the bike ride was good fun. We learnt a lot about the deforestation that has happened around the area and all felt very inspired to do something about it.

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.
