We Survived! Print E-mail

On Friday, we were the student leaders. This task was a bit daunting because we don’t like public speaking but I think that we did a good job. We, as well as having to hold student meetings, also had to attend a staff meeting and that was a bit scary but we survived! In the morning three of the four groups worked on their CLP and made lots of progress.

Surfing - We SurvivedIn the afternoon all the groups did different activities. 1A went surfing which was great fun and nearly everybody stood up! There were a few good wipe outs that were pretty funny! And 2B did a half day bike ride that was also lots of fun.

We all worked well as a team and no-one complained about how hard it was. The temperature was also fairly high so it was important to keep hydrated. We all have been having a really good time here, met heaps of different people, made lots of new friends and already had some life-changing experiences.

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.
