Chloe and Tara’s day as Student Leaders Print E-mail

Today’s class was quite interesting to say the least. 1A had their Presentation of Learning (P.O.L.) all day today. Although I felt like a stress head this morning trying to get everything completed and ready to go, it was a nice relaxing day. We were able to sit back and listen to what the other students had to say about their journey and the things they’ve learnt. The ways in which some of the students presented theirs were really different and engaging. If only I had an imagination like that! One played Jenga, one had a story book, one had a visual soccer metaphor, one had basketball knock out and the list goes on. They were really good and it was nice to hear some of the things they had to say about how the students here have enlightened their time here at Snowy and that none of us will be forgotten! It was a really good chance for us all to reflect on the things we have learnt, what has changed about us and what we want to do in the near future. Although none of us want to leave just yet, we all can’t wait to get home and catch up with family and friends!

Today 2A had raft building, it started with horrible pirate costumes and ended with the success of a well- built raft and pirate treasure. As a team we worked in harmony with each other and found it amazing how much we have grown and how much we have learnt about each other over the past 8 weeks.

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.
