Day 12 - Eleni and Nic take a turn as student leaders Print E-mail

Day 12 at the lovely Snowy River Campus and yesterday was our turn at being student leader. We are enjoying our time here and have settled in well.

Yesterday was a great day after an intro to ILP, which we spoke about everyone’s individual learning plans and were asked to make a goal for the term.

We ended with an awesome afternoon where we got a lesson from a surf instructor. We all had a great time and are looking forward to our next lessons. We then finished the night off with a movie leaving everyone as happy as can be.

Overall, our time as student leader was a great experience and can’t wait to do it again! ☺

Our First Rest Day At Snowy For Term 3 Print E-mail

Yesterday’s quote of the day:
We have a ‘strategic’ plan, it’s called doing things.

Yesterday was our first rest day. Half the group went on a day hike down to the beach. We walked along a scenic trail through the bush and down to the beach. Once on the beach we walked to a nice area at the edge of the Yeerung River to have a swim and eat lunch. The water was freezing and we all had a great time! Afterwards we packed up and walked along another beautiful trail back to our busses. Everyone was tired but we had a fantastic time. The other half of the group went down to the Marlo pier to do a spot of fishing. We did manage to catch two fish while we were down there and the weather held off as well. It was an all-round great day of fishing.

First Rest Day at Snowy

The evening class/DEARR was spirt spot down on the sand dunes. We walked through zone 4 and to the beach. We all then found a nice spot to sit looking over the beach. Spirit spot involved focusing on your senses. Everyone wrote about what they felt, heard, saw, tasted and smelt. 

Night class was Our Place Collage. Our student leaders (Jake and Mia) took on the challenge of running the class. We worked in our school group teams to make posters about where we have all come from. We wrote about population, fun facts, history etc of the various places and at the end showed on a map the area we were talking about and our poster that we had made.

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.
