Mt Feathertop Walk

feathertop-t2-2010

Yesterday on our rest day, a group of 17 students and 2 teachers set off to attempt the 22k Mount Feathertop walk.

Normally an overnight or 2 day walk, we had to leave at 7.30 to allow enough time to complete the hike.

The whole walk was filled with amazing scenery, but the very top of Mount Feathertop was the most amazing view I have ever seen.

Standing on top of the giant mountain looking over the layers of hills to the point where we started all those hours ago was a great feeling that made all the sore spots, hours of hiking and blisters totally worth it.

Everyone did really well on the walk, and should be really proud with their efforts. For me, it felt like a huge thing to overcome, and now I know I can do that, I feel as if I am prepared for anything TAS might throw at me.

Although there were hundreds of photos taken to attempt to capture the pristine scenery, nothing can compare to that feeling when you finally reach the top of something you never thought possible. TAS is all about making the most of every opportunity and experience and I am so happy I spent my rest day completing the hike; it is something I will remember forever.

Thank you to all the organisers, staff as well as the students who took part in the walk, everyone should be really proud with their efforts.

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.
