Toria and Niamh's Awesome Enviro Bike Ride

Toria and Niamh went on an o for awesome Enviro Bike Ride with the rest of 2B on Tuesday! First we had the environment side of the ride, which was the Enviro Class. We learnt about the logging coupe, the coupe boundary, the native habitats and different kinds of trees within the coupe and how they were all cut down for furniture, building supplies and firewood. We also learnt about the 80 year regrowth and regeneration cycle of logging. For the second half of the class we had the Bike Ride! It was a 30km ride back to campus up and down steep hills, along flat and rocky tracks and a beautiful stop at the Cabbage Tree Palms. Eventually we rode along the smooth bitumen that led us all the way back to campus. It was a tiring but exciting and super fun day and we'd love to go again!

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.
