Expo 2   Expo 2

This week we have both completed Expo 2 which goes for 3 days and 2 nights. We were driven up to Mt. Hotham and then skiied 12km back to the school campus. Over the first day its 4.5km, the second 6km and the third 1.5km.

For the first night we stayed in Biathlon Hut which was at a shooting range, which we both enjoyed the environment as it had snowed quite a bit and at some places knee deep. The second night we stayed at JB hut, 2A (Sam’s Expo group) suffered windy conditions so it was a challenge that they all had to face as a team. 2B (Ellen’s expo group) weather conditions were slightly less challenging but it was still difficult to set up tents and the site in the cold.

The skiing at times was difficult as we had 20kg packs on going up some steep hills and downhills, there was also the job of keeping a look out for other skiers that were on the track. Cooking with the trangias can be difficult at times when you either have to cook in the dark or wait a long long time for the food to actually be ready to eat.

We both enjoyed the experience as it shows us just how much we can achieve in a different climate and with other people. But we are glad we are back at the alpine school as it feels like a home for most of us 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".

We pay our respects to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, their Elders past and present, and especially whose children attend our school.
