Saying goodbye to the beautiful Pak Lap Wan beach - Emma and Steph

Emma:

After our final night at the beautiful Pak Lap Wan beach we had to rise early to pack up our tents and bags for our short hike back to the boat. Because of the eventful couple of days everyone was exhausted and there was hardly any talk about the amazing experience we had all just finished. Going through customs was easy, as we have now done it more than a couple of times, and the bus trip back to Utahloy was even more uneventful than the boat. When we got back, for the first time in days everyone was clean, but the stench of our clothes made up for it. Even though the entire trip was so tiring, it was probably one of the best experiences we have had so far in China, not only making us stronger individuals, but stronger as a group.

Beautiful beaches of Pak Lap Wan

Steph:

Today we had to wave good-bye to the beautiful white sand beaches and kind welcoming staff of Pak Lap Wan. As we made our way back to Utahloy, it's fair to say everyone benefited from our 3 days stay, many of us conquered our fears, or even moved a few steps closer to our goals. Our trip back was different to when we arrived because the group vibe was absolutely exhausted. The crossing of boarders was a breeze, we were in and out in 10 minutes if that. It's so nice to be at our home away from home, even though we have only been here for a short while we are all very comfortable in our new environment of Utahloy.

Emma and Steph,

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.
