Bridge Building

Bridge buildingBridge Building is an exercise to build the teams skills. The aim of the day is to be able to cross a little bit of the Victoria River, in Cobungra, by building a bridge that everyone could cross (even the teachers) without getting wet.

The 2 teachers showed us how to tie lashings and make a tripod. They also taught us how to make a timber hitch, clover hitch and frap. After they showed us a few things and answered our questions, we were on our own because the teachers didn’t help us for the rest of the day.

All that we learnt from the teachers helped us to accomplish the task. In total there were 3 groups that were successful in building the bridge and getting across. But sadly one group didn’t make it across.

The groups that built the bridge were so rapt that they had accomplished making the bridge, but it meant more to do it as a team, even with the added pressure of a time limit. The team that was unsuccessful still accomplished a task and that task was to become a stronger and better team. At the end everyone would sit in the circle and the teachers would ask you some reflective questions.

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.
