Red Cliffs SC - Week in Review

Term 3, 2016 - Red Cliffs SC - Week in Review

  • This past week we went on expo and we all loved it! It was so such fun and we all got to learn a little more about each other. Even when it was raining, we were all smiling. We now feel like a better team and we know we can take on anything with the help of each other.
  • This most interesting class was Food for Thought. We were all in different classes and had to eat different meals; some of us had to eat rice from the ground. It was so much fun though and opened our eyes to what some people have to eat every day.
  • We are all excited for our CLP day each is coming up in a few days. We have been working very hard and we believe that we will present really well.
  • We believe the quote “united we stand, divided we fall” by Aesop really suits our tem this week. We believe this because during expo, when we all worked together we got a of things done; but when we didn’t work together, not a lot was done.

Term 3, 2016 - Melbourne Girls' College Media Release

  • In the past week we really enjoyed Expo 2 because it was a great experience and we learnt a lot about each other. We also enjoyed the formal dinner because it was a fun night when we got to dress up nicely and talk to new people.
  • The most interesting class this week was Innovation. We got to create an active game and play off against each other until we found the best one.
  • We are really excited for surfing on Wednesday, it will be our second time surfing so we should get more time in the water and have heaps of fun.

Our quote is: “We must be the change we want to see in the world.”~ Ghandi. This relates to us because we are nearly finished our journey here and it is time to step up and make a difference.

The Alpine School Campus

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.
