The First Rest Day of Term 3 Print E-mail
Written by Clay, Snowy Student Term 3 2009   

As our first rest day it was a bit rocky, we had only one activity proposal go through, which was for fishing. I was going to go on a bush walk in Mt McKenzie, but the person who wrote the proposal forgot to put it in so we had a day around the campus.

Even when you have to stay on campus it’s always fun, because there is heaps to do. Many students, such as me, like to get out and do activities such as basketball, ping pong, a little bit of footy, also people were doing things such as flash on their laptops, an array of board games were being used as well. 

One real good highlight was when some of the students got out their drums, guitars and bass, the people who were playing had some serious talent. So today, due to the fact we were stuck on campus, went extremely well, though next time I’m going out swimming.

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.
