Friday Blog #3- Keishan Print E-mail

My name is Keishan Hunkar. I am 14 years old and attend Doncaster Secondary College.

This week has been amazing. We have done so many fun activities and Core 1 went on their first expo. Some of the highlights from this week have been Bridge Building and the Basic Food Hygiene Course. I really enjoyed the Bridge Building activity because it really helped my team come together to work as a team, instead of individuals, and helped us recognize what positions we take in the team. The Basic Food Hygiene course was awesome because not only did we get to learn things that we may not have known, and shared our knowledge we also had the opportunity to take away a certificate saying that we have completed the course, which we will receive at the end of our time here. We also got to go to the beach this week and had the opportunity to have a swim and take lots of awesome photos.

This week I set a few personal goals but the one I felt was most important was to have a conversation with everyone here and to learn something new about two different people. I managed to learn something new about four people, which made me happy because I was able to go further than the goal I set myself, and I managed to get a decent conversation with everyone.

This week has been an awesome week and I cannot wait for the rest to come ☺

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.
