Shae's Day as Student Leader Print E-mail

Today I was student leader with Yioti, it was my second time so I had the general drift of how everything happened and such, so it was pretty easy. First up we had our second NAPLAN test, it was the comprehension. I think I did well enough although pretty sure I got a few wrong.

We had a ‘food for thought’ activity at lunch time, which was really interesting. We had four randomly selected ‘privileged’ people, four guards and two waiters. The rest of us were very poor and got a bowl of rice to share between the four or five of us. The fancy people, the guards and the waiters got a massive meal though, finished with dessert. It was really interesting to see that pretty much the second they started eating we were running up to them and stealing whatever we could grab before the guards grabbed and took us to ‘gaol.’

Then for our second class we had orienteering. That was a heap of fun. Sierra, Adele and I found a massive mud puddle and were literally rolling around. We were brown. All over! It was so much fun though, definitely worth the cleaning process. Then when we were showered and dressed we got our afternoon tea, the most amazing mud cake (seemed appropriate) ever!! It was fantastic.

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.
