Harry's PV weekend Print E-mail

Hello there Harry here! I was the student leader for PVW (parent visiting weekend), because of this I was student leader for 2 half days since everyone here at SRC was away with their families enjoying some time with them.

For parent visiting the students here got to spend the night with their family at motels, hotels or caravan parks. For me I had Jamaine come and stay with my mother and father, this was extremely enjoyable. We stayed at a small motel in Lakes Entrance where, sadly, a lot of the other guys and girls stayed so we didn’t get to get away from everyone. There was this pool at the motel that was freezing cold but it was so much fun messing about in it. Anyway my dad, Jamaine and I went fishing near a pier, we didn’t catch any fish but Jamaine somehow managed to catch a crab that was pretty big. We then went more into the town where we played some pirate mini golf. I, being as amazing at everything as I am, won by a single point because you know I’m awesome.

Harry's PV Weekend

I loved having the weekend away from the campus because I had a meat pie, a proper parmigiana and indulged in clinkers and homemade cookies my sister made. The next day we went fishing again but my mummy came along and we caught only two fish this time one spiky looking fish and a smaller fish ( I have no idea what either one was). We then had to drive off towards the SRC again but we stopped off at an old bridge that we looked at for a while, sadly we arrived back at campus but I am glad to say I really enjoyed the weekend, partly because I spent some quality time with my family and partly since I got some presents for my birthday.

Everyone here really enjoyed the weekend away with their families and being able to chill out. Well I’m off to enjoy the next three weeks left and to hang out with my mates.

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.
