Tolga and Hannah report on being Student Leaders Print E-mail

A couple of days ago we both had CPR and Thinking and Learning. It was funny to see how much a group of people learn together and needed each other to get anywhere for the ‘Zooley’ challenge, and how diverse thinking styles work far more effectively than if it was a group of students who all thought the in the same way.

Hannah - My goal for the day was to sort out my room, unfortunately I didn’t achieve this goal because it was a busy day being student leader, so I could have managed my time better.

Tolga - My goal was to be more organised and get to headcount 5 minutes earlier. I did very well with my goal and I got to all my headcounts 5 mins earlier.

Our community goal was to get all the sporting equipment packed up after people used them. It did not go very well because we didn’t follow through with it at the end of the day.

Being student leader showed us that we had to be responsible and we had to use our time wisely. It also meant that we couldn’t rely on others to do our jobs for us.

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.
