Sarah’s Parent visiting weekend Print E-mail

It was really great getting to catch up with my parents and brother (James) again. I straight away started telling them about everything we had done at Snowy so far.

We stayed at Lakes Entrance and wandered around the shops there and in the first 15 minutes of arriving at Lakes Entrance I immediately saw 6 people from SRC and of course I had to stop and say hi. For the whole day I ate heaps of chocolate and lollies, it was so good!
The next day we headed out to Cape Conran and I talked my mum, dad and brother through the stories and stuff in which we had learnt about in the Indigenous walk. They really seemed to enjoy and find it interesting. After we headed down the nature trail (which we went to for expo 1) and around Salmon rocks then headed back to SRC. It was hard saying goodbye but then all the teachers say that it’s only 4 weeks and that it will go really fast.
I am really enjoying it here at Snowy, there is so much to do, I don’t think I’ll ever want to go.

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.
