Sarah Achieving Her Goal Print E-mail

So yesterday we had ‘Busy Time’ it was our community goal to have a constructive session of ‘Busy Time’. I got involved and helped out in the vegetable garden picking tomatoes and eating all the strawberries with some of my friends. It was really fun and we got quite a lot done.

Later that evening we had ‘minute to win it’ It was really good everyone in core one really got involved. For my Individual learning project my goal was to get better at public speaking. So as a part of my goal I hosted the games. It was actually so much fun because I really got to make everyone’s tasks so much harder and really had a good time. As did everyone else, I hope so. We played five different little games; the dry Weetbix’s challenge and other really weird little games. It was really fun. I think I really worked towards my goal of becoming a better public speaker. Overall, it was a really good evening class and a really good session of Busy Time. I feel like we achieved our community goal and my ILP goal as well. So it was a really good day. The end!

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.
