The Mad Rush by Lewis Print E-mail
Written by Lewis, Snowy River Campus, Term 3 2013   

This week has been full of work. We are so into our CLP’s and passports that nothing else matters. It has been great to get all the work done, and to put everything that you’ve learnt so far into the final product is just a great feeling.

These last few weeks have been great though, just getting together and working on things as a team. Everyone is getting along and the friendships are only getting stronger. I am sad that our time is coming to an end soon and we only have something like 3 days left. I can’t believe that at this time next week, I will be back in my home, with some excited pets awaiting my arrival.

I do want to go back home, but at the same time, I want to stay with all the friends that I have made here. This will probably be the hardest week so far, but if we stick together, we can pull through and persevere. These last few days will be the ones that we will define the true meaning of leadership. Who will step up in these last few days? Hopefully me.

School for Student Leadership - Student Equity Fund The Student Equity Fund enables people who share our vision of transformative education to contribute to this outstanding program and help ensure it is affordable and accessible for all students in the public education system.


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.
