Today my expo group and I had surfing at Cape Conron! It was so amazing and exhilarating!! It was the first time I had been surfing and it was so much fun, I can’t believe I haven’t discovered it before! Our instructors today were great; they were so nice and helpful! After many failed attempts I finally stood up and caught a wave!!

S-surviving all of the wipe-outs
U-unreal waves
R-running through the waves
I-incredible experience
N-never going to forget
G-getting so much better by the end

Yesterday while I was student leader with Conner we had a video link up with the other student leaders at the other campuses. It was so great to see the other students having such a great time, just like we are! I had such a great time being student leader; I loved telling everyone about my home town during our morning announcements!

Everything here at Snowy is so interesting and fun!! I am having the time of my life and I can’t wait for it to continue!

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.
