Community Goal Print E-mail

For our community goal yesterday, we decided to unify the community once more after not having everyone here for nine day- or since expo started. Because the final expo group got back it was perfect timing as well and we wanted to have a little bit of fun. So what better to do then having a dress up for dinner. Everyone was asked to wear a costume of something they wouldn’t normally wear to tea- and be ready by six. We had a fair few people come in onies and their dressing gowns and pj’s. Others dressed up in whatever they could find- which meant we had a few pirates and even a few boys that dressed up in a dress and heels. I just clashed the whole time- with a green spiky wig on and a red woolen overcoat, boots, green top and blue shorts- I was hot and sweaty but it was so worth it. Everyone had a great go at it and even though we had people come back from expo, everyone was really energetic about it and had a lot of fun. My favorite part was coming into the common room and seeing everyone, because half an hour before hand they were wearing a t-shirt and a pair of shorts- now they wore a dress with heels or a pirate costumes. I do think it was nice to do something like that though because I was a bit of fun and it wasn’t too serious.

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.
