Gina's thoughts Print E-mail
Written by Gina, Snowy Student Term 3 2009   

Gina and friendsHey I’m Gina (second left) from Princes Hill Secondary College and I got selected to come to SRC.

Before I arrived at the campus I had so many doubts about how I would fit in but those soon left me because now I’ve got lots of friends who I know I will have forever.

One of my biggest worries was that I would miss my family and friends a lot but the staff and kids here become your family. The activities and classes we have done so far have been so much fun, my favourite though are the rest days because you can do whatever you want;  fishing, swimming, bike riding…anything nearly.

For the people reading this and wanting to come…you won’t regret it! It’s definitely a life changing experience.

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.
