Last Time as Students Leaders Print E-mail

Dan: Yesterday was my favourite student leader day, I had a lot of fun being the leader and it was a good way to end my last time. I had personal prep in the morning and I just worked on my passport and POL, in the afternoon I had Yoga, it was really relaxing and a good time to fall asleep. I had a really fun time controlling the community with Ruby, what I don’t miss is eating last. ~ Echuca College

Ruby: Yesterday I really enjoyed being student leader with Dan; our community goal was to get everyone to dance every hour! My class was POL. I really enjoyed listening to everyone’s presentation. I was a little nervous about presenting but that all left as soon as I opened my mouth. I got good feedback from both teachers which was good. In evening class we received our photos back that were printed when we had photography class. It was good to see everyone’s photos that they took and they are one thing that we will get to take home in a few days. ~ Swan Hill

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.
