Dean and Georgia - Epic Student Leaders

Well yesterday Dean and I were student leaders again! It was a pretty relaxed day with 1A and 1B on Expo 2 and 2A environmental bike ride. So it was just 2B on campus all day, which was a bit lonely but it was nice for everyone to sit at the one table and eat lunch together. Yesterday I had First Aid and Passports; First Aid was okay, a bit boring but still informative and Passports was great. In Passports I did muck around a bit with Corey but it was only because he hadn’t been here and we just got side tracked. I did get more work done than anyone else though, surprisingly!

Yesterday I had environmental bike ride. It was fun because we got to just sit there and bask in the glory of the day. It was pretty easy and we were able to stick as a group which was good. We started off learning about logging at an old logging coupe then went down to the cabbage tree palms. They were really big and beautiful and they are the furthest south species of palm in Australia. My job for the day was team navigator so I was up the front all day. Unfortunately the wind was blowing straight into my face which made it harder to ride.

Georgia and Dean are undoubtedly the best student leaders this school has ever had. We couldn’t showcase our marvellous leadership skills as much as we would have liked to because not everyone was here. However, the people that were lucky enough to be led by such awesome people, now feel extremely privileged. We enjoyed being student leaders and wish future ones the best of luck trying to compete with our epicness.

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.
