Water Watch and a Guest Speaker Print E-mail

Yesterday I was away at Water Watch all day checking out the critters in the river to gauge how healthy it is. Anyway, the time I did have at SRC as student leader was pretty good, except for morning headcount at breakfast because Nadine and I just suddenly forgot what to say and there was an awkward silence for a bit. Evening class was really good; we had Jill Redwood in to talk to us about sustainability and how she lives a sustainable life. I think everyone got heaps out of her as a guest speaker because she answered all our questions and was good to talk to. Overall, being a student leader for the final time was a great experience and it really helped build my leadership skills and confidence.

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.
