Sarah and Sarah’s LLP day Print E-mail

Hands up at LLP DayYesterday, the 3rd of November 2010, the two of us were student leaders for our Local Learning Project (LLP) day. 21 students from the Marlo Primary School, grade 2-6, came onto campus for the day.  At first the kids were a bit shy but after a few games they got really involved and inquisitive. We were split into groups of four for the day and each of the groups watched three presentations, about thing in the local area (marine and wildlife, bush tucker and outdoor safety), that we had prepared in the last week or so.

The kids were a lot smarter than we thought they were going to be but we think they all really enjoyed the day. It was a really great day and it was good to be able to educate the children about their local area and have fun at the same time. Another plus was that one of the primary school kids had a birthday so we all sang to him and had chocolate cake, a treat that we rarely get here! We now appreciate the effort that teachers put in to teaching us, after being in charge for a day and doing what they would usually do. We enjoyed the day a lot and have learnt a lot more about responsibility and sharing our knowledge.

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.
