We had a really fun time building the bridge: ‘first half was really good because everyone was cooperating, but the second half was chaotic’. Alisa

Yesterday I was student leader with Alex S. After a breakfast of toast and juice, Alex and I went into the meeting room to talk to the Gnurad Gundidj campus and the Alpine school campus student leaders for that day.

I was nervous getting up in front of everybody, even though I was only reading out the programs for that day, some ‘students of success’ and my goal, which was ‘to be more confident when speaking in front of others’ but I think in the end I faced my fear and succeeded in my goal.

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.
