Our Day Print E-mail

Today was our first day as student leaders. It wasn’t as bad as I thought it would have been. We didn’t have to say much but it was still pretty fun. Picking tables at meal times was not fun considering everyone begs you to pick them. We had to do the link up with the other two campus’s which was embarrassing and we didn’t really talk much. We have Marlo Challange tomorrow which will be fun.

It was great being student leader today because it gave me a bigger sense of leadership and helps a bit with speaking in front of everyone. I thought the link up was great because it showed you that you are not the only person who is being student leader. I thought the staff meeting was good, because it gave me a bigger sense of belonging and helped me fit in a bit more with teachers that I don’t normally talk to. I am looking forward to do student leader again because I already know what and how to do it.

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.
