Relaxing. Print E-mail

Today all but 12 of the SRC students left, either to go canoeing or on their expo. I was lucky, as being student leader of a small well-known group is much more manageable than a large one.

Yesterday’s schedule, made up wholly of inside classes, was a relaxing but inside one, Peer skills 1 in the morning and CLP 1 (Community Learning Project, a project developed to improve your local community in some way) in the afternoon. Peer skills dealt with people and how to appear attentive and interested in their conversation.
In the other class, CLP 1, we worked on our ‘master plan’ and completed it in one lesson, which I thought was quite an achievement. After everyone arrived back, we had more time to work on our Passports (a presentation of our understanding of the various fields of leadership etc taught here) and tasty lasagne prepared by the masterful cooks. It was a relaxing and easy going day and everyone went to bed early as they were either tired for expo or sick from a cold going around.

Now for a completely unrelated picture of Jack and I!

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.
