Today was our first rest day of the term.

Our First Rest Day by Eldrain & Brianna

We were the student leaders for the day and had to let everyone know about all the activities we could do for the first rest day. Some people went fishing, some worked on bike tracks, some went for bike rides, played tennis and some just stayed back at campus catching up on washing, kicking the footy outside or went for a walk around the school. It was good to see that a lot of people were outside enjoying the beautiful warm weather too. Usually our days were full on and everyone has to do something at a set time, but today we were just relaxed and everyone had a calm vibe among themselves. Our community goal was to get everyone to sign the Community Agreement on rights and responsibilities. We got majority of the community to sign it but had to catch up with a few the next day. Thanks to all the staff who helped out and took us to the activities and/or hosted them! :)

All in all, everyone had a good day, and we’re looking forward to the next eight weeks ahead.

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.
