A Spectacular Day - Abseiling and Cloud 9 Cooking School - Lizette

Wow. That’s the only way I can describe today. My breath was taken away quite a few times, by the wonderful abseiling experience and the majestic mountains, my taste buds were enlightened with amazing food.

This morning I was excited to experience zip lining and abseiling. There was a small hike but the pain and shortage of breath was definitely worth it. At first the view was beyond anything I could imagine, but I know I’ll never forget it. The nerves finally appeared a moment before I had to jump, it felt like I was jumping for my life but as soon as I took off adrenaline was rushing through my body. Then once I got to the rock I had another totally different experience of lowering myself about 35 metres to the ground.

That afternoon, I learnt so much in the cooking school, I never knew that eggs could be made into dumplings and how my taste buds could explode from flavour. The cooking school was called “Cloud 9 Cooking School”. They treated all the Alpine students and staff members with such respect I was astonished to be able to cook Chinese cuisine in a room with 12 of my peers.

All in all this day was spectacular and will be a highlight of my trip.

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 three 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 school community acknowledges the Gunaikurnai, Bidawel and Gundijmara people as the traditional custodians of the land upon which our school campuses are 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.
