Hey my name’s Tess. I’m from Beechworth Secondary College. Today we had a rest day which was lots of fun. For the first half of my day I read my book outside, relaxed and hung out with friends. For the second half of my day just after head count a small group of us hired out some of the camera’s the school has and took the bus down to Salmon rocks where we walked around everywhere climbing on the big rocks trying to take good photo’s of the water and any other things we might of liked. After being out at Salmon Rocks for a while, we all grouped back together and went for a short walk just around the corner. We stayed for what felt like a short period of time before we headed back to the bus and came back to school. Once we got back to school Stefanie and I were rushed into the meeting room because the Beechworth group (my group) were doing a HD TV link up with our home school and we got to see some of our friends and a couple of the teachers from home. At the end of the day it was a very fun rest day.

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.
