Our Journey - Nia and Jemima

Wow this Sunday marks the start of week 9. It makes us feel like we have come so far through our experience here at Snowy. Yet it feels like we have hardly been here for long. Going home, reuniting with friends and family and especially going back to school will be really different! But we shall never forget the amazing people that we have met here.

Looking back on photos it seems like some of the activities that we have done were only the other day, not weeks ago. The next 2 weeks will be challenging as we will need to prepare to go home. We are not looking forward to saying our goodbyes.

The Snowy river experience has been an experience that none of us will ever forget. The things that we have learnt here will stay with us for the rest of our lives, as will our friends.

We don’t know whether we are ready to leave.

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.
