The End Print E-mail

On the last Sunday we had here, we choose the quote “when you reach the end of your rope, tie a knot in it and hang on”- Thomas Jefferson. We choose this quote because it resembles our experience coming to an end here at Snowy. We have had our ups and down and now that it is coming to an end we can now reflect on how far we have come and how much it has changed us.  This week we have had a lot of “lasts”. Every time we do something for the last time, we really appreciate every opportunity and we now realise how lucky we are to have this once in a life time chance to shine brighter than the sun. Even though we are all going home this coming Saturday, Snowy River Campus will always be our second home and will always have a spot in our hearts.

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.
