A Successful Learning Day Print E-mail
Written by Sophie and Lochie, Snowy River Campus Students, Term 2B 2013   

Hi my name is Sophie and I’m from Melbourne Girls College in Richmond. Yesterday, Lochie and I were Student Leaders. It was a great day overall, especially as we were leading the Snowy River community. My two classes of the day were Thinking and Learning 2&3 and Passport 1. In Thinking and Learning, it was our second lesson, and we further discussed our preferred quadrant we use of the brain. We also got set an individual challenge which was really confusing, but then we got put into groups to complete it, and it made it much easier. Passport 1 was the first lesson following our Intro to Passports the night before. Passports are our journey at Snowy River Campus that we have to work on throughout the duration of our stay here. Both lessons of the day were really interesting, and I feel I’m learning more here every day.

Hi, I’m Lochie. All day I had CLP intro, it was a fun, yet successful day. Our CLP teams are the schools that we came to Snowy River with. I’m from Horsham College and our CLP is assisting year 6’s with the transition to year 7. To do this we are hoping to travel to various primary schools and talk to them about our own experiences while sharing a video about what it’s like beginning year 7. We will also talk to them about the opportunities available at Horsham College.

Our day as student leader was very successful and organised. We felt that our personal and community goals were all achieved and that we lead by example for future student leaders.

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.
