Son and Caitlyn’s Day Print E-mail
Written by Son and Caitlyn, Snowy River Campus Students, Term 2A 2013   

Hi, I’m Son Nguyen and my partner is Caitlyn Jones. Our community goal as student leaders was to get everybody to class on time and to also get everybody to settle in with the class.

We did a good job but most people kept talking for a few minutes so not everyone settled in as quick. Everyone tried at certain times during the day though. It was really good being student leader because it made us realise how frustrating it can be standing up the front, waiting for people to listen. It was a good opportunity to be committed to our community, by being up the front at the right time so we could try to get everyone where they needed to be on time. We are getting better at being at class on time during the week. Being student leader give us the excitement because we have to uphold responsibilities for that day. We’re having fun and hope we can be student leader again.

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.
