Last Day Print E-mail

Last night the cooking committee held a formal dinner. We all got dolled up and enjoyed a delicious three course meal. After the meal we danced the night away! A fun night was enjoyed by all. It is our last full day here at Snowy and we are all a bit sad about leaving. Tonight we have a closing ceremony down at the fire pit (grandma.) One by one, we will read out a closing statement about our time here and where we wish to be in ten years from now. We are expecting the closing ceremony to be quite emotional but understand it is a nice way to finish off our time here. We have all really enjoyed our time here and will take away so many new things. The friendships we have formed are really strong and they will last us a life time.

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.
