Taylor and Daniel's Student Leadership Goals Print E-mail


I’m Taylor from Dromana College. Today I was student leader with Daniel and we did a fantastic job working together.

The day started with a call to the other 2 campuses, we discussed our personal goals, community goals and what our highlight of the past 24 hours was. The highlight of my past 24 hours was passing my CPR exam. Daniel and I came to the agreement that our community goal was that we would try to get everyone to do their own duties as an individual, without being asked.

We worked on that goal throughout the day and everyone is starting to do it without being told. My day started with LLP (local learning project) where my group worked on our presentation about turtles that we are going to perform to the prep, one and twos of Marlo Primary. After lunch all of core 1 made their way down to West Cape where we met two inspiration people, from the Gunai/Kurnai tribe. They were there to tell us all about the indigenous culture. The whole group walked away with a completely different knowledge about the aboriginal culture, it was a really enjoyable afternoon.


I’m Daniel from Lakes Entrance Secondary and today I was student leader with Taylor. We started our day with a link up to the other campuses and we stated our personal goals, community goals and our highlight of the last 24 hours. My personal goal was to learn a lot about the indigenous culture of the area on the indigenous walk and my highlight was caving.

The first class that my group had was the indigenous walk and we were shown by Buzzy, Jade and Kylie the traditional ways and beliefs of their local tribes. It was very interesting to hear what they had to say and what they thought. We were also shown about traditional tools and basket weaving. My second class was LLP which in that my group worked on our plan to give a presentation to primary students about healthy eating. After that day I felt my leadership skills had grown considerably.

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.
