Chopping Wood

Here at SSL everybody has been enjoying the little things, one of which is cutting wood for the fire.

Call it peculiar if you like, but being stuck inside without internet connection and Facebook can make you a little crazy at times. There isn’t a day that goes by without having people crowded around the wood pile in a line, even the city kids are trying to satisfy their need for something to do in their free time. Despite having an increasingly large amount of fuel for the fire, it’s slightly concerning that the community has acquired such an unhealthy obsession with chopping wood.

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.
