Rest Days - Movie and a Long Walk

Today was our first rest day.

A lot of us had been looking forward to it. A lot of activities had been planned, but the weather made it difficult. A movie was planned for the morning, and we watched School of Rock.

A walk had been planned to Carmichael Falls, on the other side of Dinner Plain. A small group went. We started by following a 4wd track, and we realised after a while that there was no turnoff. We walked back along the track, and must have walked straight past the signpost.

The weather kept changing between snowy, sunny, rainy and cloudy. The path we followed to the falls was very steep, slippery and rocky. A few of us weren’t sure how far we had left to go, and we walked past a smaller waterfall, but kept going in search of something better. Finally, after a hard walk, and a lot of slipping, we got to the lookout.

The long walk was worth it, with a really pretty waterfall on the other side of the gully. We stopped and took lots of photos, and then had the harder walk up the path. We can’t wait until the next rest day now to see what else we can do.

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.
