Caving Print E-mail

I had caving on Tuesday the 25th. It was amazing! Our group started off by going to the Royal cave.  It was really cool inside and the crystals were really sparkly.  Some parts of the cave reminded me of the gold mines in Sovereign Hill. At lunch all of core 1 played a game of ‘Food and Water.’ It was a lot of fun just to play a game. After that we headed to the Wilsons Wild cave. I was so excited and I could tell I was going to enjoy it! We started going through smaller and smaller gaps in the cave. I wasn’t that nervous which was good I just kept looking ahead. The mail box and the wombat hole were the best! They were literally only big enough for your body and that was it. I did have a sense of completion at the end of it and I was so happy that I did everything that we had the option to do. I would definitely do it again… No questions asked!

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.
