Day as Student Leader Print E-mail

Today was exciting as I was Student Leader for the day with Busta Carroll. I woke up at 6:15 as I wanted to get a shower and have breakfast at 7:00, at the end of breakfast we had to start headcount which is basically where everyone calls out their number that was given to them at the start of school going through from 1 to 45.

I had to say the timetable for today explaining what each group has for day whilst Busta read out who was on duties. At 9:00 we did the same thing but we had to prepare our goals for the day and explain what the weather was like for the day.

My goal was to keep my school group on task for our CLP; I believe that this went well as our team completed our master plan. Our community goal was to make sure that everyone was on time for headcount and their classes. This worked well as we had a plan to walk up and down the bedrooms hall to tell everyone that they had to come to the common room. At the end of the night we had a music talent show and everyone had fun and enjoyed the night.

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.
