Michael's time at Snowy

My time at Snowy has been great and I have done lots of things like Surfing, Canoeing, Bike riding, Expos, Community games and lots of peer skills activities.

The days I like most are rest days and the days that we go on Expos, Surfing etc.… and yesterday was a rest day, so in the morning after head count some of my friends and I went to the bike track in zone 3 and made the jumps and the whole track better. Then we went in for lunch and we had pasta and salad. Once we had finished lunch a group of us went fishing at the Marlo jetty. Some people caught fish like silver trevally and tailor but I didn’t catch any. After tea which was chops and vegetables 1A (my group) was running the evening class so we had a battle of the sex’s trivia night. There were two groups of boys and two groups of girls and the group of boys that I was in won the trivia.

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.
