Student Leadership Conference Print E-mail
Written by Shae & Cain, Snowy River Campus Students, Term 3 2013   

Today in class we did the student leadership conference.

It was awesome, we had rotating groups taking about how we are leaders and what good leader’s traits are, but the best part was when Debbi Grey came in to give us a speech. I won’t give away too much information in case future students are reading this but she is so inspirational. She is one of the few people, who come into your life that you will never forget and who will change your perspective forever. So any soon to be students out there look out, this is one to remember. I know I will never forget this and in her speech you hear her life story which can bring a tear to your eye even if you’re hardly an emotional person. So as I’ve said watch out for this because it will change a heap of your ideas on people.

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.
