Exploring Caves and the Town of Yangshuo

For the first morning in Yangshuo we had breakfast at a local restaurant before leaving for our caving adventure. While Core Group 2 did orienteering around the streets of Yangshuo, Core Group 1 went to blue moon cave and explored the caves beneath the mountain. We were taught many useful things about rock formations like stalagmites and stalactites and the way caves are formed, we hiked up stairs which lead us to a mud pool in which we all hopped in and got covered in mud then moving on we walked through the river that flowed through the cave to the top exit. After reaching the end we had a short hike back to the start and we all cleaned off in the freshwater pool.

Caving at Yangshuo

After changing into clean clothes Group 2 joined us for lunch at the cave. We took the bus back to the hotel before heading out for orienteering through Yangshuo. We were given a quest that involved finding different places and things around the city. We split up into groups and set off to explore. Some of the groups (including us) shopped whilst doing the actual set task, but we answered most questions. We also ate a delicious traditional Chinese dinner at the local restaurant, before going to the light show performance on the river. The light show was really enjoyable even though we couldn’t understand the singing.

The whole day was really good and we all had lots of fun exploring both caves and the town of Yangshuo.

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.
