Our Great Day at Pak Lap Wan, Hong Kong - Jas and Jordan

On Monday the 10th, I along with Jordan were student leaders for the day. Being student leaders on Monday was quite different, seeing as we were camping on the beach in Pak Lap Wan. (Hong Kong)

Abseiling - Pak Lap WanDuring the day, all students participated in numerous activities such as Abseiling, Hiking, Sea Kayaking, and Raft Building. All activities pushed all students to a degree, regardless of any previous experiences, given the location we were in.

Abseiling was amazing! We abseiled off of a cliff in the ocean, which was amazing in itself! Jordan had abseiled before, but Jas hadn’t, but we both thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Hiking was, at times, quite challenging, especially coming back from the beach! There were a lot of stairs! The hike was around 7km long, but we all learnt a lot about the land structure of the area we were in. (thanks to Uncle San!)

Although Jas didn’t quite enjoy Sea Kayaking, we both found the experience to be both mentally and physically challenging, of course in a good way! Raft building was fun and challenging in a group and individual sense, however past experience from bridge building did contribute to team successes, whether that was getting the raft into and out of the ocean or successfully working and contributing as a team.

We both thoroughly enjoyed the day, along with the whole Pak Lap Wan experience!

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.
