On the 24th and the 25th of August the students got to see their parents for the first time in 5 weeks. Some of us were looking forward to just seeing family, while others were hoping for a bounty of sweets and soft drink (Mountain Dew), most of which we had little to none of here. It was a glorious time for us and everyone enjoyed it. Many of us stayed at Lakes Entrance, therefore almost taking over the town, while some stayed at places near Marlo and Orbost, meaning a smaller drive from the school and local areas that we have been. Although some of us might have gotten a little more homesick than others from the visit, everyone seems to be getting back into the usual routine here, and life is good.

Don’t cry because it’s over, smile because it happened.

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.
