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!

Snorkelling Print E-mail

We go snorkelling twice while here at Snowy. Most groups go to the mouth of the Yeerung River for their first class- which is where you learn how to do it- but my group was lucky enough to be able to go off the boat ramp both times!  The first time we went, I was partnered up with Rose. We practised in what they call the bath, which was filled with a marine plant called “Neptune’s Necklaces” and was sheltered from the waves by the rocks. Then we swam around into deeper, open water for the second half of the lesson. I found it really easy to get the hang of it because I’ve done snorkelling before and I was very eager to go into the less sheltered water straight away.  We saw a lot of marine life while on our snorkel, including sea stars, abalones and lots of fish, but my absolute favourite animal which Tom and I saw on the swim back was a 2 metre wide sting ray! Snorkelling has been one of my favourite activities so far, and I hope to do a lot more snorkelling once I’m back home.

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….

Beach Olympics Print E-mail
Beach Olympics

Quote of the day; "you cannot build a reputation on what you intend to do": Henry Ford

Beach Olympics: Today was our last proper rest day so the sports committee took advantage and held our first Beach Olympics. The rotations that we covered were beach soccer, beach cricket, beach volleyball, touch rugby, capture the flag and of course surfing. I think the day turned out to be really enjoyable day as the whole community got involved and supported this day. For this day to happen we had to push everyone to complete all six drafts of the passports. The whole community responded to this very well as everyone got to enjoy the sunshine and have a good time.With our SRC experience coming to a close it’s great to see that the whole community has become one big family. I still can’t imagine what it would be like without 44 other brothers and sister always by your side.

Two Weeks Left Print E-mail

Today marked the eighth week mark in our journey here at SRC. Core 1 had CLP and started preparing for the presentation on CLP day. 2B put their snorkels on and went down to Mots beach for a splash, shortly followed by 1B. 1A got busy setting up the poles on the running track, while core 2 decided they ought to get onto their CLP as well. Both the student leaders for the day ran the evening class, which was Intro to POL (Presentation of Learning) They both enjoyed the night and it ran smoothly. The weather was less than pleasant, as there was quite a large thunderstorm that night. All round, it was a nice day.

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.
