The Elegance of Skiing

Before I came to The Alpine School I had never been skiing before and I always thought it looked like such an elegant sport - but now that I am learning to ski, my opinion on the sport has changed.

Today was the second time I had ever been skiing; I fell while going down hills, up hills, while turning and even when standing still. I fell over a total of 9 times- and they definitely weren’t elegant falls.

We have been told by the staff here at The Alpine School that we should spend as many hours of our spare time skiing as possible, because come the time when we will be skiing all day with a heavy pack on our back for our expedition- we will have wished that we had done more practise.

So my plan over the next 2 weeks is to do exactly that- go out into the wonderful world of white with my skis and I’m hopefully going to minimise those 9 falls an hour down to at least 2 (fingers crossed).

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.
