Fire Truck

Today we had an ALP class and my ALP group of Abby, Lachlan, Sophie Lee and I are doing a presentation on bushfires. So luckily Mr Davies gave us the opportunity to go down to Dinner Plain fire station and look around and to find out how everything works. We saw a whole heap of different things from the fire trucks down to the simplest things like the clothes you wear when fire fighting in winter or summer. It was really interesting and fun; there are so many things I didn’t know but now I do. I didn’t know that one of the duties that top of the truck is used for is to put out grass fires, also so if the crew were there they can grab a blanket out of the storage compartments and put it over them if there was a blow over of flames.

We all learnt how all of the hoses work and how heavy they were. There was a variety of different hoses one of them was a heavy duty one so that if they went over a rock or something that could make it burst it didn’t. All of us got to use the hose and it was so much fun, you don’t realise how much water comes out at once its crazy!

It was the first time I’ve seen a fire truck since being in Australia so it was an awesome day we all enjoy it heaps! Thanks Mr Davies for helping us with our ALP!

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.
