Hi our names are Shaun Harrington and Gabrielle Welch and it’s been around a week since we have arrived at Snowy River Campus. Our community goal for yesterday was make sure everyone gets to class on time so we don’t run overtime.

Our plan was to round people up 5 minutes before class so we could start head count on time. Gabby and Shaun worked well to achieve this goal by saying to everyone to be ready for class. However, we ran over time because everyone was talking during reflection so that was a minor detour. We then got back on track after evening class. It was a bit annoying because no one was listening to us but we just had to be patient and wait for everyone to listen and we finally got there.

Yesterday everyone was very excited to get their laptops so we could email our families and friends. We are all very excited about this technology so we can contact home and not have to wait a long time to receive and send letters. Gabby and Shaun highly recommend if you get the opportunity to take on this experience you really should. It has only been a week and everyone is getting along really well and having a blast!

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.
