Tilly reflects on her Presentation of Learning experience Print E-mail

My name is Tilly and I was student leader the other day. I’m from Camperdown College in the western district of Victoria.

Yesterday I had POL (Presentation of Learning) and I actually really enjoyed it. Before I came here I couldn’t even stand up in front of my class and give a presentation without being really nervous but for once I really was looking forward to talking. I think I did much better than I would normally have done because at the last minute all my nerves left me.

Doing POL is a lot harder than most people would think because you have to answer the questions:

"What have you learnt? What has changed about you? Where to from here?"

You only have five minutes and it is really hard to sum that in that small amount of time. But it was a really good opportunity to just reflect on your time.

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.
