Time Flies when you’re having Fun! Print E-mail

Josh tackling the human knotThe third week is almost gone and it feels like it has only been a couple of days. This is probably because I have been having so much fun and time has just been flying past.

We had a rest day a couple of days ago and I definitely love rest days now because we are always so active and it’s nice to have days were you can have a rest. You can do other things if you want but I decided to take the rest option considering the day before I had my first Expo and that was one of the most exhausting things I had ever done!We had a guest speaker by the name of Sgt Jo Lomas to come in and talk to us and the other two campuses last night about Cyber Bullying and how to be safe on the internet and it was really interesting. I think everyone learnt heaps and will be a lot more cautious now. It was also pretty cool how we involved the other campuses via the HDTV’s!

So far I have loved the experience here at Snowy and I have already learnt so much and it’s only been three weeks!

I can’t wait for my second Expo, because I know it will be a huge challenge for me and I like a bit of a challenge so wish me luck because I will probably need it!

See Ya!
Joshua, Yarrawonga

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.
