What an Amazing Day Print E-mail

Yesterday Chelsey and I were student leaders.

I woke up in the morning looking forward to the soccer drills that my friend Benjamin was running. It’s a nice way to start the morning and get energised for the day ahead. The HDTV link up ran well with no hiccups which was another nice way to start the day. The class that I had all day was Water Watch, which I helped Mrs Francis run. It was an invigorating way to spend the class. We learnt about the different ecosystems and the ways that humans have affected them.
After this we got to go swimming in the majestic Snowy River which was just purely amazing. We then returned to campus and everyone pitched in to help with the pack up. For night class it was a gender night. Chelsey and I facilitated the class, Chelsey looking after the girls and me the boys. It was a good night, just because of the respect that everyone gave me and shared about their experiences.

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.
