Imagine a submarine pinging its way around Lake Gillear. That's what we all thought when the rains started teeming down on the Interschool Dirtbike Teams (IDT) venue at Allansford. Officials from the Warrnambool Motorcycle Club said 'it'll be dry when its dry'. And, guess what, that is exactly what happened. Within the space of a few weeks we went from Olympic type swimming pools to, would you believe, dust!?
On Friday the 3rd of November nine schools battled it out for the honour of taking home the 'Interschool Dirtbike Team Challenge' trophy. AKA 'the headless ironhorseman trophy'...
It was the eighth year of running this event and we had students from Brauer College, Lilydale High School, Cobden Technical School, Portland Secondary College, Trinity College Colac, Colac Secondary College, Emmanuel College, Terang P-12 and Timboon P-12. We'll get to the results later.
Without exception, the students displayed the IDT values of Courage, Tenacity and Sportsmanship. This was evident during the race, after the race and before proceedings got under way. Everyone co-operated, students gave freely of their talents and skills just so other schools could have a complete 'relay team'.
We saw the sportsmanship during the race when we had two minor incidents where riders would stop to care for a fellow rider. A big cheer to Sophie who's having her knee looked after and a 'courage' award to Tayla who broke her bike, said that 'it's just my back is out of alignment, that's all' and ended up being the 'barrel girl' for our raffle.

Two weeks ago a group of students went on the school's snow camp. It was freezing, excellent snow conditions and a fantastic time for everyone. Ever wanted to ski in a blizzard? Snowboarding? You thought it was cold around the South West of Victoria? Literally freezing conditions at Falls Creek, Mt. Buller or anywhere around this beautiful part of the world.
Have you ever heard of the 'Summit Camp'? Here's a little of their blurb "..We passionately provide inspiring and life changing experiences through a combination of meaningful programs and powerful activities that build self-worth, character, success and happiness..." The students & staff that are currently on camp are already sending us very positive feedback. You'll hear more from them in Term 4.
