Lucky Last Print E-mail

It was finally our turn to be student leaders as we were lucky last. Miss Moore gave us the challenge of running DEARR and evening class- Phone Calls.

DEARR went well and we believe we did a good job of explaining what it was we were reflecting on. After DEARR Miss Moore went through what we had to do for evening class. The 3 of us decided to play a game outside but it started to rain.

At first we were feeling unsure but up for the challenge. For the first 10 minutes of the class we organised a game of Silent Ball. The game was fun although it took longer than we expected.

The class was enjoyable although at first our fellow classmates looked confused due to our explanation. We learnt how to make business phone calls and most of us did well, all thanks to our excellent teaching.

We benefited from the opportunity to lead and we are glad that we rose to the challenge. Thanks to core 1 for being easy to teach and especially Miss Moore for giving us the chance.

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.
