Beach Day Print E-mail

So, today for 2A’s Elective session, we chose to spend a nice, relaxing afternoon at the beach. Some people decided they’d like to try and catch the pretty significant waves whilst others chose to just have a swim around, enjoying the chill, sunny afternoon.

We all had a pretty chill morning, nothing too much happening, so heading down to the beach and mucking around was a fantastic way to get us out and about. Body surfing was bliss and seeing Oskar’s “sea weave” was a sight to be seen. It was an enjoyable time, being out in the sun. It is days like these that are going to be the ones I miss the most when I leave. But there’s this saying; don’t count the days, make the days count and that’s exactly what I plan to do to continue to get the most out of the tremendous opportunity. Hopefully with my new found love for not only the beach, but the marine wildlife, will enhance the way I see the world and all it has to offer, because in the end, the world is your oyster….

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.
