Will and Busta

We are half way through week 5 and its parent visiting weekend on Saturday. We are so excited to see our families for the first time in just over a month. We have our LLP (local learning project) tomorrow and we are teaching preps about the local environment for the day. We all have a group of 5 students and we have to choose a subject and run a work shop for them. We have our second expo on Monday which is really exciting; it is our one and only 2 night and 3 day expo.

We get to canoe for the first 2 days and then hike the last one back to campus. Sunday night we had a disco night and everyone got into it. The dress up theme was bright. Everyone had a blast and we all had some good moves. Everyone came out of their shell so much which is good to see at this stage in the program.

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.
