Having a blast at Snowy - Stephanie. Print E-mail
Written by Stephanie, Snowy River Campus Student , Term 2B 2013   

Yesterday my Expo Team 2A went to our first surfing session at Cape Conran. I was so pumped to start, mostly because I thought by the end of the lesson I would be pro. Ha no! Our instructors were so nice helping me after each of my failed attempts to stand on the board. By the end of the lesson I managed to stand up twice! It was so exciting and powerful. After surfing we were all pretty wiped out, Thank goodness Mrs Pascal had prepared a yummy afternoon tea for us.

I was also student leader yesterday with Jayden, our community goal was to have everyone draw a name out of a hat and write a letter to them, but to not let the person you got know it was you. This goal went really well, to watch everyone open their letter and see them smile and giggle was a really good feeling. Both Jayden and I felt like our community goal had a big impact on everyone’s day.

I’m having a blast here at Snowy, every day is like a party in my Expo Team. Every day there’s something new to learn and the teachers make everything fun and electrifying.

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.
