Written by Maegan, Snowy River Campus, Term 2B 2013   

As the sun sets on a new day,
1A expo team came to say
We will soon start to procrastinate,
But we have to keep going or we’ll be late

Off they went plodding along the track,
With massive bags attached to their back.
Grizzling and groaning along the way,
As the sun sets on a new day

Canoeing through the river stroke by stroke
As they were all craving a diet coke
Gazing at the stars, on the fields they lay
As the sun sets on a new day

Feet slowly dying, expo slice running out
“We’ve reached the top of Mount Raymond!”  1A shouts
No more Nachos or marshmallows they say
As the sun sets on the last day

- Maegan, from Echuca College

School for Student Leadership - Student Equity Fund The Student Equity Fund enables people who share our vision of transformative education to contribute to this outstanding program and help ensure it is affordable and accessible for all students in the public education system.


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.
