Julian and Maddy - Student Leaders Print E-mail

Hey everyone, it’s Julian and Maddy and yesterday we were the student leaders.

Julian: We have been having lots of inside classes lately which isn’t too bad since we have lots of work to get done. So we had passports and I finished a whole criteria which I was very happy with. I really enjoy working on my passport because I am writing about stuff I’ve never really thought about. I am up to criteria six (Leadership) and I hope to finish eight (Indigenous Prospectives) soon. I am also looking forward to the creative part of it all.

Maddy: The community vibe is awesome. Everyone is getting on so well together, and we are like a big family. Our community goal yesterday was to get everyone involved in different games. It was great to see everyone participating and having a red hot 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.
