So close, yet so far

Well, well, well. Today was our last Saturday Rest day. Our next rest day is Thursday next week and the week after that, we'll be going home! We enjoyed the day going surfing and working on our passports. Many of us got a good amount of our passports done which was really good and everyone's looks amazing. Melanie Grossman put on Shrek, one of her personal favourites and those who didn't go surfing, watched that in the meeting room. I (Jamie) got to work on the veggie garden a bit more, closer to achieving my personal goal of finishing it! And I (Mia) got to complete some of my passport which is my personal goal!

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.
