Personal Prep Day

This week we had Personal Prep, where we had the choice to do a range of different things such as; cleaning our rooms, packing our bags, finishing class work, working on presentations, downloading photos onto USB’s and having some relaxing time to yourself. We had two and a half hours to get as much done as we could, as we don’t get much spare time to complete these tasks. I chose to clean my room and pack my bags. I started off just packing away a few things and I ended up packing almost everything I didn’t need away. Laura chose to finish her passport, download photos, work on her presentation and clean her room. Except for the interruptions during the day, it was pretty successful and we got a lot done, although packing our bags and cleaning our rooms made us sad even thinking about leaving, so we came to a conclusion… we’re not leaving, sorry Mum and Dad!

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.
