A week to go! Print E-mail
Written by Henry and Tallara, Snowy River Students, Term 2a 2013   

Today was our 28th day here at the Snowy River Campus. It was our final rest day and we were told to make the most of it. Two groups of people went surfing, one in the morning and one in the afternoon. They had a lot of fun by the sounds of it. The rest of us took the opportunity to work on our Passports and POLs. Passports are books that contain information about our time here and what we have learnt. POLs are Presentations of Learning which explain what we have learnt during our time here and how we have changed and developed as a person. A few of us also ironed the T-shirts which we will be taking home.

Overall, I think we all enjoyed our last rest day. It was a great opportunity for us to have a small break before heading onto the home stretch, with only a week left to go!

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.
