Katie's Productive Day Print E-mail

Today I was Student Leader with Ethan. Ethan is in 2B and I am in 1A. This was my second time being Student Leader and this is my second blog. We had a really good day and I had CLP 4 and Passport 5 so I worked on the "create" parts of my Passport because I have already finished all the criteria.

In CLP 4, our group of 4 girls from Bellarine Secondary College worked on our CLP which is to raise money to purchase a beach wheelchair and some rash vests for the DSAA. The DSAA is the Disabled Surfing Association of Australia and we have contacted the Ocean Grove branch to see if we can help them in any way. They said they are trying to purchase a ‘Sand Piper’ which is a beach wheelchair and they have already raised $2000 towards it.

In total, Sand Pipers cost around $4,200 so the DSAA would love our help to raise around $2,200 to contribute to buying it.

We are all very excited about our CLP and can’t wait to start the fundraisers and working on it when we get back home. We originally were going to do our CLP for the children at the Geelong Hospital in the Children’s Ward but it backfired so we had to think of another CLP. This one is awesome though, it’s achievable and exactly what we were hoping to do!

In our Passport class we were allowed to go and work in our rooms but I decided to stay out in the Common Room with Brianna.

I started pasting things into my Passport book and made it look pretty. I am really happy with what it looks like now and can’t wait to finish it and take it home!

It was great being Student Leader today because we were the first to talk about the Leadership Alliance which is where the Student Leaders from Friday to Saturday come together and make up 4 rule type things to keep the campus running smoothly. We came up with:

  • Do you know where your washing is?
  • Getting to headcounts, class and duties on time.
  • Are you wearing your right shoes?
  • Is the last door you walked through shut?

Everyone around the campus is respecting these 4 questions and everyone seems a lot happier because there is less dirt when we sweep the Common Room and it’s not ‘fly central’ now. I really liked being Student Leader today, it was really fun.

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.
