Our First Downhill Skiing Lesson

On Friday alpine students had their first downhill skiing lesson. We had a quick check in the morning to make sure we had the correct gear, then headed down to the road in wait of Christians bus line.  45 students, 7 teachers and the public all cramped onto the bus.

Once we arrived at Hotham we were split into different skiing skill levels and went to get our ski gear.  We had a quick morning tea then had our ski lesson with Hotham instructors.  We went over the basic moves to begin with, such as snow ploughing, turning to completely stopping.  After a quick turn at that most groups were on the chair lift headed up to the top of the hill.  At the top of the hill we practiced our snow ploughs and turns.  We finally reached the bottom and had another quick go before our lesson ended.  All the students were looking forward to lunch, because Mrs. Hannah had ordered sausage rolls and meat pies. 

After lunch students took the chairlift up the hill another 20 or so times.  We put what we learnt into action and I could see some improvement from my fellow peers as I watched them ski from the chairlift. 

We had all had such an exciting day and wanted to keep skiing, but had to eventually return our skis.  At the end of the day everyone had huge smiles across their faces that wouldn’t leave.  Students chatted about their time and we all can’t wait till our next downhill skiing lesson.

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.
