Stepping It Up Print E-mail

Yesterday Ryan and I were student leaders.

I was woken by my alarm at 6:20 but everyone always manages to get an extra twenty minutes sleep in, although it is usually interrupted by door slamming and yelling. Breakfast was the usual with the amazing looking bunch that we are in the morning. First headcount ran smoothly with everyone out of bed and doing the usual ritual of Sam starting us off at 1 and continuing from there. With a group out surfing and a group at photography the campus was quite for a few hours letting the rest of us get a few hours of work/emails in.

Afternoon class my expo group ventured off into the wilderness riding through tree branches, grasses and up some sandy hills (we got off and walked). We made term 4 history by getting DEARR over and done with, on time at 5:30. We played a game of soccer out on the field and all had some giggles and a few injuries. Ryan and I ran the first half of the night class on ‘stepping up’. By the time it was over we were both exhausted and ready for bed.

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.
