Visit to Newmerella Primary School Today at the Snowy River Campus we had a rest day in which we planned a trip to Newmerella Primary School since they had attended our LLP Day and wanted us to go to their school this time and look at their projects.


The drive was long and beautiful because it had rained in the morning so everything was so green and wonderful as we drove alongside the paddocks.

We had arrived to find the students anxiously awaiting our arrival by standing on the fence waving and shouting. We were then greeted inside where we watched the Newmerella student’s projects which they had prepared for the day.

After they had finished their presentations, we all had recess in which they provided food for us and we all played basketball. We then went back inside so that the students could finish their presentations and take us out to play a game of soccer. Soccer was really fun because it was SRC vs. Newmerella and everyone had fun playing the game in the mud. We then packed up, said goodbye to the students and drove the bus back to the SRC.

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.
