Project Work in the Utahloy Library and Dinner at ZengCheng No 1 High School - Ronan

Today we did project work in the Utahloy library for the morning and then went for a walk in the afternoon. We then started our touch rugby program where we volunteered to help teach some of the boarders how to play. But the highlight today was tonight when we went to the local high school, ZengCheng No 1 High School and had a look around the place. We were introduced to many friendly new people who showed us where to go and what to do and included us in all of their activities. We spent the first hour doing fun games and activities to help develop their English then our group went upstairs to their canteen for a meal. This was soon followed by numerous photos with the students who were quite shocked by our ages (thinking we were 17 and not 15). We all received post cards and gifts, even lollies but one of the girls I sat next to gave me a present which was a bag of food that I haven’t opened yet, as it is written in Chinese. Today was a really fun and enjoyable day and I hope the next 4 weeks are the same.

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.
