9999 Steep Steps - Rory

Today we went on a hike up one of China’s most iconic waterfalls. It was a beautiful waterfall with exactly 9999 steep steps. We only went up about 4000, but there still was an amazing view. It was a great feeling when we made it to the point that we stopped, and it was when we knew that all of those steps were worth it for the view. I was up front for most of the climb, with a few others, and we were chatting and cheering each other on.

Before we started the hike, we passed through some markets. All of the markets were selling a wide range of strange things, from plastic toys, to gutted duck carcasses. There were even some bags of very large wasps. It was definitely one of the stranger places we have been to on this trip. The highlight of the day was definitely taking that final step to where we stopped and began admiring the view.

That’s all for today,
Rory

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".

We pay our respects to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, their Elders past and present, and especially whose children attend our school.
