A Quiet Day at Snowy Print E-mail

We got off to good start at the morning head count then we both had First Aid. From start to finish we were learning about all sorts of things like how to treat someone with severe bleeding and how to manage someone with a spinal injury. Our community goal was to get everyone to participate and concentrate well in head counts. We came up with the idea of instead of saying numbers, saying an interesting fact. This worked really well!

Riley and I then had Peer Skills, we did many trust exercises like having someone lead you around an obstacle course when you were blind folded, it was really fun and we think it brought the whole group closer. After the trust exercises were finished we came inside for a relaxing game of dead fish! Miss Moore organised for our group 2A to call the Kids Help Line to ask some questions. Four people asked a question decided on earlier in the lesson by the whole group. They were questions such as: "How many calls do you get a day?" We were astounded that they receive around 400 calls a day!

Riley and I think that the community did a good job at trying to achieve the goal although we think they could improve on not talking during head counts and being more alert. It was a quiet but productive day at Snowy and we think we did a fantastic job at being student leaders.

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.
