Our Day

Hey guys its Jade and Gabe. Yesterday we were student leaders.

Gabe: We’ve been doing great here and having heaps of fun here at SRC so far we have done heaps of stuff like surfing, canoeing, bridge building, bike riding which today I just did the half day bike ride and we’ve done loads more.

Jade: Today I had my CPR Exam and I passed and got 100% yay. I also did my LLP which means local learning project, it’s where a bunch of primary school students come to SRC and we teach different classes in groups of 3-4. My group will be making damper with the students and teaching about different types of bush tucker. Also, in the past few weeks every group has completed their first Expo; all up it was 16k, with 8k on the beach, 8k on trails.

We had lots of fun being student leaders together and we can’t wait till next time.

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.
