Step up Day Print E-mail

Now, you’d think that Friday the 13th would have been an unlucky day, but it wasn’t. But no pressure when the community is in Step Up mode! Step up is the trial day where students step up and the teachers step back, so being student leader is tough, because the bar is being raised high. However, it was like any typical day and things ran smoothly, mainly because the students knew that the teachers were counting on them. Another good thing about Friday 13 was that it was the day before parent visiting weekend! Getting to re-connect with our families was pretty special for everyone and eating lots of junk food was good too!!

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.
