Week One Print E-mail

That, unfortunately was not me. We had a great time on Saturday when guest speaker Darren McCubbin, who was mayor of Wellington shire and now runs a theatre company called Murder, came and talked to us about Beliefs and Values, then we all went slightly crazy while having a go at Theatre Sports, which is a series of improvisation/acting games. All of us have finished the first category for our passports as well which a are document of ourselves and also about our time here at Snowy. Sunday was a rest day and we all hung around and relaxed except some who went to catch some fish, they caught nothing. Another interesting thing we did was Thinking and Learning which is a lot of information about our brain, our learning preferences, thinking styles and our brain colour quadrants which is basically a summary of how we think. I was Yellow, which is creative and often slightly reckless. There was also Blue which means you are very analytical and mathematical, Red meant you were a very emotional person and feelings mean a lot to you and lastly was Green which means you are often organized, punctual and are interested in self-preservation.

So all in all we have had a great first week and I can’t wait for the rest.
See ya guys

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.
