Today I was student leader with Cam.  We had a video conference with the students at the other campuses and spoke about our personal and community goals for the day.  Our community goal was to ensure everyone was having fun and enjoying themselves, we did this by playing a community game of ‘Honey, I love You’. My personal goal was to complete the next required criteria for my passport.

In the morning 1B had Thinking and Learning 3 with 1A. We learnt about the different ways we learn, I am an Aural learner. We also played a memory game.  Later I the afternoon 1B had passport 4. I got a lot done. I completed my next criteria and helped others with theirs.  For evening class we introduced Ranger Mike to our community, he came in and spoke to us about his job. We learnt a lot about the native wildlife and marine life in the area and what are the positives and negatives that are involved in being a Ranger. 

Today was another great experience and I had a lot of fun being student leader.

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.
