Our Time Here. Georgia and Finlay Print E-mail
Written by Georgia & Finlay, Snowy River Campus Students Term 2B 2013   

This week we were student leaders. Being a student leader was a bit nerve racking at the start but soon we became comfortable as we knew the people around us. Our goals were to keep the community meeting running smoothly and efficiently and to speak clearly in front of everyone. Our community goal was to keep the classroom tidy after using it so the next group would have a clean room.

Surfing up a Storm at Cape Conran

Our favourite experience so far was surfing up a storm at Cape Conran and going to the spirit spot for D.E.A.R.R. at night. Some of the things we have learnt are leadership qualities, how to crochet a beanie and knit a headband. By now everybody knows each other really well and the community is working together as a team so that life at the SRC runs smoothly.

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.
