Our Amazing Time - Harriet and Jake

Hi. Jake and Harrie here and we are going to talk about our amazing time yesterday.

A Lesson on Chinese Calligraphy

Firstly we had a go at Chinese calligraphy. We painted a picture of elegant bamboo sticks. Some pictures were better than others. Ha Ha! Next, we learned some Mandarin for our upcoming bargaining bonanza. We learned to say things like: 'too expensive' and 'how much'? We all found this very useful later on. Finally, we bartered (quite badly) for items on a shopping list. Fun, exhausting and hilariously different!

Overall, yesterday was a really fun and exciting day. It gave us all a taste of something completely new that wasn't home.

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.
