Alpine School Life

We are the Teachers - Finlay and Travis

Teaching English at ZengCheng No1 High SchoolWe began our day teaching English language classes at the Zengcheng No 1 High School. All of the Alpine students paired up in groups of 2 and taught classes of between 40 to 50 Chinese students! We played games, sang songs, danced and of course spoke English with the students. This experience was really enjoyable and made everyone culturally aware of the differences between Chinese schools and Australian schools. The students varied in their level of the English language and knowledge but they were all highly respectful and all had a smile on their face.

After lunch back at Utahloy, we looked at the bees and worm farms on the property which taught us how bees are important to the environment and the worms help clean our soil.

Bee Keeping

That night we watched a traditional Chinese doctor demonstrate some of his traditional medicine practices. He used massage, acupuncture and cupping on some of the staff here. It was also interesting.

Overall, the day was really fantastic and enlightened everyone’s experience here in China.

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.
