It’s the halfway point all ready and so far everyone is having so much fun! Parent visiting weekend was so good. I think everyone enjoyed seeing their family and eating LOTS of junk food!
So far we have been surfing, canoeing, we have been on our first expo, we’ve been on an indigenous walk, we’ve been swimming in the Yeerung, we have been bike riding, have done two HDTV link up’s with the other two campuses, but most of all we have been having fun!
Another activity we have done is the Marlo challenge. We were very enthusiastic about the whole thing. There were some pretty crazy outfits and some pretty crazy group names but overall it was a lot of fun...First, second, third and fourth were really close. 4th: The Nerds 169; 3rd: Fluro Emo’s 170; Fluro Hippiez 171 and 1st place was the Funkidichopz on 172...

I have learnt so much in the past four weeks my head feels like exploding, but I am coping. When I first walked through the doors I didn’t know how I would go doing things I had never done before, eating things I never usually ate and having to live with 38 people I had never met before...But i’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’m loving it. My roommate is so cool. Her name is Georgie and she is from Bairnsdale, which means after this we’ll only be an hour away from each other. This has been one of the greatest experiences of my life, and I will NEVER forget the amazing people I have met, things I have learnt and things I have taught...

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.
