Coming to Snowy River Campus, School for Student Leadership has been the best experience I have ever done. I have made so many friends and learnt so many different skills. I have really enjoyed a lot of activities such as surfing (all four lessons have been so much fun), caving (it was an experience that I have never done or experienced before, Environmental bikes (it was great to push myself to ride that 28km and after I had achieved it, it was a great feeling, I enjoyed it), Expo 1 and 2 (Before coming here I had never really been camping before so it was great to go for the first time. It was a lot of fun and I really enjoyed it). Coming here has been a once in a life time opportunity and I’m so glad that I was one out of 6 students from my school that got the chance to have this experience. I will never forget all the memories I have shared and all the friends I have made.

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.
