A Normal Day at SRC for Max Print E-mail
Written by Max, Snowy River Campus Student Term 3 2013   

Today I started the day off like most people do, have breakfast, have a shower and prepare yourself with what the day has to throw at you. We here at SRC had what is called ILP (Individual Learning Plan) interview, which is basically when you sit down with your liaison teacher, and talk about your personal goals, and how you are going so far at SRC. It is similar to a job interview, you come prepared and with evidence of things you have done. We spoke about my goals, and how I have achieved them, about the challenges I have faced while being here, and a new goal I can work on for the next 4 weeks. I was very surprised with the feedback I received from my liaison teacher. He basically said since you have been here, your leadership skills/qualities have gone through the roof. So I am very happy with that. It really makes you smile how other people notice the little things you do to benefit the community. Whether it is giving someone a “Good on ya”, or helping someone to stay motivated. People here do notice the little things which are more often than not, the most important.

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.
