A Day of Many Experiences Print E-mail
Written by Joby & Georgia, Snowy River Campus Term 3 2013   

Yesterday we had CLP, Passport and Coastal Environments. In the morning Core 1 had CLP and for that they worked on their presentations for CLP day. Core 2 did the same until morning tea when they swapped that for passports. After a magnificent lunch of chicken rolls and salad we went onto afternoon class. Core 1 had a passports class and everyone was working very efficiently. Core 2 went down to Cape Conran and explored the boardwalk for Coastal Environments. We did a scavenger hunt and with what we found we took back to the circle and showed the group, some of us were intrigued by other’s findings and were interested to know more about species such as corals, sponges, shells and sea stars. After our little share circle we went to the rock pools and explored them. For night class we all split into our boys and girls groups for Gender Night, this was our third and last gender night that we would have here at SRC. To celebrate this special class we wrote down some questions that we thought we would like the opposite sex to answer for us. After looking through the questions we had to answer we all went down to ‘Grandma’ (our fire circle) and gave our answers. All round it was a really good night and we think everyone appreciated the answers given.

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.
