T.O.A.S.T Print E-mail

On the 15th of June, I was Student Leader.  For me it was a great day to be Student Leader, not only because we had a music work shop with a guy called Nick, but we also had T.O.A.S.T all day. T.O.A.S.T stands for Teach Others A Skill or Talent. So as you can guess we lessons ranging  from Taekwondo to Knitting to things like Basket Weaving and Photography. It was great because you didn’t just have the teachers teaching the skills to the kids, but you had the students teaching the class. At first it was a bit different, but then once we got used to it, it was quite great. I enjoyed doing different classes and learning new skills, and I’m pretty sure other kids did too.


I want to go back to Robinvale and be able to organise a day just like T.O.A.S.T  because we have a lot of talent back home , and I’m sure a lot of the students and teachers would enjoy it. So overall it was a perfect 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.
