Written by Jordan Z, Term 1 Snowy Student   

Today was a good day; we had a guest speaker, Darren Mc Cubbin come and give us a talk about thinking and learning, it was great! He is a very loud guy and a very approachable one too. We also have a night class which is going to be about Theater Sports, it should be good. Also today I was working on my big project, it is called Passport and has 8 different sections.

My time at the Snowy River Campus has been great; I have met a lot of new people from different places around Victoria. I like meeting a lot of new people because now I have made a lot of new life long friends. It has been a great experience so far and it is only the SECOND WEEK!! I have had lots of fun and we haven’t done any expeditions yet.

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 four 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 fourth and newest campus, currently known as the Don Valley Campus is located at Don Valley, Yarra Ranges.
Our school community acknowledges the Gunaikurnai and Monero-Ngarigo people as the traditional custodians of the land upon which our school campus is 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.
