Intro to Snow Skiing

Today was our first rest day. Because the snow hadn’t melted yet, we had an introduction to cross-country snow skiing.

We broke into 2 groups of about 10 and fitted all our gear. The school provides the skiing shoes, skis, stocks, packs, all the warm clothes and gore-tex jackets.

We walked up to the Dinner Plain ski slope and started off by practising getting back up after stacking, moving backwards and forwards and spinning around. After that we went for a bit of a ski around the bush area and then we learnt how to stop. We went down a small hill to get used to going fast and slowing down. I stacked a few times but got better at it in the end. We plan to go for another ski on Saturday, if the snow is still here.

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.
