Student Leader Experience Print E-mail
Written by Luke- Tyrrell College and Meg- Mallacoota P-12   

On the 29th of October we were the student leaders of the campus which meant we had to conduct all the head counts and organise everyone to get to class and into bed which can be quite challenging at times.

The day as a Student leader starts at 7.30am where we must get the community together for the first head count  and grouping of the day. At 7.30 headcount we briefed the community on what classes everyone has and what schools are on duties for the day. After this we must then have a meeting with yesterdays’ student leaders and a teacher. It is here where we decide on the community goal/s, Students of Success, Quote, Community vibe and all the other things that need to be told to the community. Once discussed with all the staff we then go round up everyone for 9.00am headcount and beginning of first morning class each day. Throughout the day we gather the community 7 times inform them of the days schedule and each time we do a headcount. Before the end of our student leader day we must get all the students in each of our wings (Girls and Boys wings) to bed at 9:15pm. This is probably the most challenging part but we managed quite well. Over all a day as a student leader is tiring and full on but worth it.

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.
