Bec and Jamaine

Yesterday Jamaine and I were student leaders. Our group did Peer Skills 3 and Passport 4. In Peer Skills 3 we learnt about conflict; what it is, why it happens, how it happens and how to deal with it. I helped run the class so I could complete my ILP Leadership Goal.

In the afternoon we had passport 4. We discussed the criteria (leadership) and went on to work on it on our own.

For evening class we did Intro to POL (Presentation Of Learning). We were told about how we were going to present our learning to our groups at the end of term and we made a start on it.

Jamaine and I feel that we completed our personal goals for the day successfully. Mine was to not get distracted during passport and have a productive lesson and Jamaine’s was to make sure everyone was on time to class. Our community goal was to get everyone calmed down before bed by reading aloud and then for everyone to settle in to bed quietly and on time. Yesterday was the only day that everyone was on time to class and went to bed quietly and on time.

Overall, we both had a successful day, learnt lots and did a good job as 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.
