A Day with Hazelwood North Primary Print E-mail

Yesterday was Local Learning Project (LLP) day. We had 17 year 6 students come from Hazelwood North Primary School so we could teach them a twenty minute class.

We were split into 12 different groups to make classes. Most groups had between three and four people in them and they all had to think of something that had to do with the area around Snowy to teach about. Some people talked about camping and some people talked about the beach. All the year 6 students were put into 3 different groups. Two groups of 6 and one group of 5. They all went to four different classes each. The LLP Committee had everything set up and organised. They did a great job at that.

A Day with Hazelwood North Primary

The day started off with everyone setting up their classes. There were streamers and Blu Tack everywhere. At 10:30, the children arrived. We went out, greeted them and showed them the way inside. We started off with chocolate cake as morning tea. We think they loved that. The first set of classes took place at 11:35 and ran until 11:55. Our groups talked about Beware Reef and native mammals. The Beware Reef group covered the topics of sea creatures and shipwrecks. The native mammals group talked about mammals in the area and also had a good game to entertain the primary school students. For lunch, we had tacos and we had tours of the wings along with a game of chicken run. After lunch there were two more classes. When those were over, we had a name game. That was really fun. Then was time to say goodbye to the kids at about 3:30. We cleaned up at the end of a great day with primary school kids.

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.
