LLP Day Print E-mail

LLP Day in actionToday SRC students presented our LLPs to Orbost and Marlo Primary School students. LLP stands for Local Learning Project. It is a smaller version of a CLP. SRC students are required to complete a topic from the local area and present it to primary school students. In the morning when the students arrived, we played some games with the whole community and name games in our smaller groups before presenting our topics.

The topic that my group decided on was Conservation Awareness. We focused on the positives and negatives of logging. We planned a PowerPoint presentation on the pros and cons of logging and made it interactive using the Smart Board. We presented one side through the view of a hippie who spoke about how logging affected all the animals, which depend on the trees.  A lumberjack (played by myself) spoke about why logging is important in our everyday life and what exactly we use the timber for. It also gave me a chance to display my perfect (awful) singing skills. We also organized a game for the students to play, which was similar to wink murder.

Other topics the primary school students attended were about Sharks, Aboriginal Culture, Shipwrecks, Turtles, Bandicoots, Bush Tucker, Bitey Things (snakes, spiders’ ticks), Surfing, Rock Pools and Local Wildlife. Everyone had an enjoyable day presenting to the young children. We hope that they enjoyed themselves and got something out of it just like we did.

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.
