Water Journey Day

Today was water journey day for 1A. We were out all day down at Victoria River testing and assessing the quality of the water.

When we arrived we instantly went into kick back mode and started kicking the footy and throwing the netball around. We then gathered as a group around the minivan and decided what we were going to do next. As a unit we all decided it would be best to have morning tea, this decision was based mainly on the fact that we were starving. After a delicious slice of cake we got straight into testing the water. Some of the tests included oxygen, phosphate, temperature, ph, ec and electricity conduction to name a few. It didn’t take long to get the hang of it but by the end of testing we were all pretty over it. Next came our BBQ. We as a group had to make lunch and all we had was the food and a dismantled BBQ. Surprisingly we had that up and running within minutes, I guess it was that hunger factor again. As it worked out the BBQ was amazing, one of the best lunches we have had here.

After pack up we went back to kicking the footy and which reminded me of lunch time back at school. Our afternoon activity consisted of groups of three catching bugs in the mud. This too was interesting because we got to see a few different types of bugs. Finally we spoke about how what we do every day is affecting the river systems and what we can do to prevent that. By the end of our lesson we had a little bit of spare time so we decided to take a small drive to see a waterfall. Once we returned home we had to clean everything up and then as soon as we started we had to go out on our community walk. All in all it was a good day.

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".
