New Experiences Print E-mail

Hi I’m Aidan and this is my blog for Tuesday the 9th of August 2011

So far at SRC it has been a blast, so many new experiences and things to do and new friends to make (even though we’re all like a big family). I’ve only been here two weeks and already I’ve been bridge building, bike riding, learnt all the necessary skills to go out on an expedition and heaps of other things but that would all take too long to write about.

I can’t say everything has been good sometimes not having a bell means you’re always late (like me) or you just forget to charge your laptop but apart from those little things it’s great the people are awesome, the teachers are all fun, there’s always something to chat about with them and they always make it fun and/or add an outdoor thing for an inside class. Also I hate to brag but the cooks here are amazing, thank you Mrs Pascall and Mrs Hollaway.

So far this leadership school is awesome, I’m having a blast, I can’t wait for the next 7 weeks!

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.
