We Made it to the Dunes Print E-mail
Written by Sally and Lily, Snowy River Campus Students, Term 2A 2013   

Hi, my name is Sally Jacobs and I’m from M.G.C. Yesterday Lily (from Mortlake College) and I were student leaders on our 3rd rest day. Our community goal was to ‘get the community to our spirit spot on the dunes for D.E.A.R.R and to screen print all of our T-Shirts’. It took us four hours and 15 helpers to print all of the t-shirts, but we got it done eventually. Everyone did a really good job and they look great! Our next goal wasn’t so easy to fulfil because it was weather dependant and it had been raining all day. But luckily the rain seemed to clear at about 2:00pm and by 4:00pm the sun was out and we were all rugged up in our gortex gear and ready to go. We got to the dunes in good time and watched the sun go down and the clouds move as we sat and wrote in our journals. Expo group 2 was running evening class and they decided to have a movie night/ pyjama party. We voted for movies and unfortunately for the guys the notebook won. After a lot of protest 2 movies were put on at 7:00pm, the incredibles and the notebook. Overall it was a really nice productive day and we are all felling relaxed and ready for the week ahead.

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.
