Not Nerve Wracking Print E-mail
Written by Chloe, Snowy River Campus Student Term 3 2013   

Yesterday l was student leader. My personal goal for the day was to show good public speaking skills by speaking clearly and having good voice projection. I achieved this goal which was good because as a part of my ILP l want to gain more confidence through public speaking. I was student leader with Scott and our community goal was to have everyone in the community participate and enjoy the dance class that was run as our evening class yesterday. I think we achieved this goal because everyone found a partner and joined in yesterday evening.

My favourite part about being student leader was that l was able to video conference with the other campuses and talk to other student leaders. I look forward to next time l am student leader as l have now seen how it works and that it is not as nerve wracking as l thought it would be.

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.
