Noah and Bridget’s Day as Student Leaders Print E-mail

Hi I’m Noah and I was student leader for the second time yesterday with Bridget VD. My goal was to project my voice better and stop distracting myself, I did that goal and I think I did well. My leadership wasn’t always good but I think I made and impact on our community by doing so.

I had CLP 3 yesterday followed up by LLP1 in which prepared ourselves for the Lakes Entrance children making an appearance in the forthcoming days. Our CLP is coming along great and we are almost finished the master plan. My highlight so far was going caving today, especially the wild cave, and the Royal cave was very interesting but you couldn’t touch anything, which didn’t make it as kinaesthetic as the wild cave was.


Yesterday I was student leader with Noah. Our community goal was to get everyone out for a game of 40/40 home which was relatively successful, although not many people knew how to play everyone had a lot of fun! For morning class I had LLP and my team and I are organising our presentation for the kids that are coming on Wednesday which is a game show. Which we finished finally! That afternoon we went down to the beach for coastal environment which was really interesting! We learnt so much about the coastal environment and I had a lot of fun catching sand fleas. We did a walk along the board walk which was really cool and I learnt heaps about aborigines lives in this area. So when we started watching ‘rabbit proof fence’ for night class everyone was really moved by the true story.

My highlight so far has probably been 2A’s ‘Pretend Campfire’ for night class. Since it was raining we couldn’t have a real campfire but we made do and we all really got to know each other a bit more and had a bit of a laugh!

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.
