Connect Four Challenge Print E-mail
Written by Matt and Megan, Snowy River Campus Term 3 2013   

Today as student leaders we set a community goal of filling a row of the connect four challenge and asked the community to contribute by being quiet during headcounts and being early for headcounts. We also set ourselves a personal goal of being the leader when doing CLP (Matt) and to speak confidently to the community (Megan).

Throughout the day we organised the community for the bush dance that took place in the common room. It was a very interesting night filled with laughs and dances and people dressing up in country styles clothes. Mrs Beck taught us different dances and gave us some free time to dance to some songs with our friends and become closer in the community.

I think that we went well as student leaders by fulfilling our community goal and our personal goals. We managed to fill a whole row of the connect challenge by being early to headcounts and being quite at headcounts. We both completed our personal goals as well. We both hope we get the opportunity to be student leaders again.

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.
