Quote of the Day

"Management is doing things right, leadership is doing the right things."
~ Peter Drucker

Morning Class-CLP 2

In this class I think we worked much better together then yesterday. I think that is partially because we were working in pairs rather than the whole team. We rang Mrs Knight (our Assistant Principal from Geelong.) to inform her about our CLP plans and to get the all clear. Our CLP is teaching some younger kids in a local Primary School (hopefully Oberon South). We will cover a basic food chain and grow some spouts with the younger kids (grade 1 and 2) and with the older kids (year 5,6 ) we will talk about plastics and how they get smaller and poison the food web. We started writing up pieces for our CLP booklet, which is what we will present our CLP in.

Afternoon Class - Surfing 1

This was great. There is a big difference between learning to surf from some who can, compared to a professional surf teacher. I am really happy to have ridden numerous waves out at Cape Conran. On the bus ride there, there was a few bits of negativity from some people. It was great that everyone tried and that most people succeeded in standing up on the board. When we got back from surfing the core A boy’s expo team was back. It was fantastic to hear the stories about their experience, especially, when we are going to go on expo in about a weeks’ time.

Evening Class- Phone Calls

As part of helping as with our CLP we were taught the art of a good phone call. As we will need to be making some important calls for our CLP. We then went in to the staff room one by one and made a phone call to another part of the school. We were judged on speaking clearing and content such as; introducing yourself, clarifying the answer and thanking them at the end with their name.

School for Student Leadership - Student Equity Fund The Student Equity Fund enables people who share our vision of transformative education to contribute to this outstanding program and help ensure it is affordable and accessible for all students in the public education system.


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.
