My Reflections Print E-mail

My Name is Kacey. I’m from Elisabeth Murdoch College which has over 1,600 people.

During my time here at the Snowy River Campus I have created so many great memories and so many great friendships. It’s the day after Parent Visiting weekend and I ate so much food I still feel sick. It was really good to be able to see my family and catch up on everything back home. Today my group, 1B, stayed at campus while all the others went out on expo or caving but I didn’t mind because I enjoyed today’s classes. In the morning we had First Aid; I now know what to do if someone seriously injures themselves. We also had our 3rd Peer Skills class, we basically discussed what type of leader we are and how we can use it reasonably. For instance I am opinionated and assertive; this is good in situations when a decision needs to be made quickly and effectively.

My Reflections

That’s all I really have to say for today’s classes. I am really enjoying my time here at SRC!

Yesterday was mine and Jake’s go at Student Leader. I think Jake and I did a really good job. We conducted a game of tug-o-war throughout the community which was successfully won by 1B. It was our last full rest day so I decided I would get all my work completed so I could head out for the afternoon and go swimming with a some of my friends. I am greatly appreciative that I am able to experience these magnificent adventures with some of the best people I could possibly ever meet. There is 2 weeks left of my time here at Snowy River and I am pretty sad that it’s all coming to an end. I have made strong relationships with many people here and I have created really great memories.

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.
