The Positive Bucket Print E-mail

Yesterday our community goal was ‘positives in a bucket’.

Positives in a bucket was an activity where Joby went around and gave everyone a number, with that number they were supposed to find out who it was and write something positive about them. Our community goal was a success and everyone but 3 got a positive note. At the end of the day we read them all out and everyone was happy with it.

The Positive Bucket

Also, last night a group of students from Orbost Secondary College came and performed for us. The theme was crazy dress and everyone loved it. The next morning we had a guest speaker, Barry Heard. He is a Vietnam Veteran who has written 5 books and published 3. 1 of them “Well Done Those Men” is going to be produced into a film. He was very inspiring and also quite a comedian but everyone appreciated his appearance in SRC. After Barry Heard’s speech we did an activity about poverty. 4 people were “randomly” chosen to be rich another 4 were “randomly” picked to be the henchmen and the rest of the 37 students suffered eating nothing but rice while the rich had the privilege of having a nice lunch. Others got upset and others felt guilty but the message in this activity was that we are the rich people and there are others that have nothing at all and that die due to lack of food.

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.
