A Happy Day Print E-mail
Written by Matthew & Jasper, Snowy River Campus Students Term 3 2013   

Yesterday core 2 did LLP (Local Learning Project). This is where kids from Marlo and Orbost primary school come to the Snowy campus and we run a day of activities for them.

Each group has a topic and some of them are; animals around the area, environment, aboriginal culture, beach safety, bush safety and the ocean/beware reef.

Each group runs a twenty minute activity based around their topic, playing games and teaching the kids about their area.

1A got back from expo at late afternoon exhausted and ready for bed. 1B had beliefs and values where they talked about what they believe is right and what they believe in and what they value in people and things. After the break they had movie making which everybody enjoyed. Passports were done in the afternoon and everyone worked hard for a long time. In night class we watched a documentary about food and what happens to it before we eat it. It showed how the animals are treated and what it is the foods we eat every day. 1B had passports and 1A had some down time as they were exhausted.

Over all everyone seemed happy and we had a great day.

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.
