Jaqui EllisAs a newcomer to Marlo I feel very privileged to have the opportunity to be a generalist teacher at the Snowy River Campus School for Student Leadership. I am excited to work and support the awesome young people through their journey here in this beautiful setting.

Growing up I was blessed to have the opportunity to have lived in many places around Australia and overseas, including Indonesia, Poland, India, Sydney, Alice Springs, Darwin, and Adelaide. Through my years of travel, I have relished in exploring the world and have a love for education, the environment and wildlife.

At university I studied Aboriginal Education and for the last thirteen years, I followed my passion for teaching and living in remote closed Aboriginal communities across the top of South Australia. In my last community, Pipalyatjara was twenty hours drive away from Adelaide. I embraced every moment working closely with students, families, communities, and rangers on country immersing myself in their rich culture.

I look forward to meeting you.

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.
