Third letter home to parents and guardians of Snowy River Campus,
Term 3 Students - 2nd September 2016
Snowy River - On Campus Program
Hello again from the community of the Snowy River Campus! We’re still flat out here and going strong. By the time you read this, the first expedition groups have headed-out and returned. They have biked, hiked, paddled and camped in, on and around the beautiful Snowy estuary system. The students were well prepared and so full of excitement, apprehension, “coolness” and worry, all mixed into one! I know, however, that what they will learn through their undertaking will put them in great stead. One of the concepts we use in designing our type of education experience is to move from the known to the unknown. In moving to, and living at, the Snowy River Campus, students initially are in a much unknown environment (socially, physically, emotionally, geographically and so on), which they soon become comfortable and familiar with. I am sure this is conveyed in correspondence, and will be obvious at the visiting weekend. The expeditions are another move from known to unknown, from the known existence of the Snowy River Campus into the wild coastal environment and with lightweight tents.
Mark Reeves (Principal) & Robyn Francis (Campus Principal - Snowy River Campus)
