Simana's Leadership Poem

An early rise to another day,
A day I would lead with David,
The unknown yet to come,
And challenges to overcome,
As we stood in front of them,
It was our role to calm them,
Hands were raised,
And voices projected,
We all came as one,
Light falls and the darkness rises,
Together we stay as a group,
Sharing our homeland,
Teaching others,
Knowledge of who we are,
Creative minds entertain each other,
And fills the room with laughter,
It's late at night but we’re right,
Our leading day is over.

One of my favourite activities from this week had to be the 'Crocodile Mile' where our Expo team split into two groups and worked together to race the other team. I was with Anita, Annie, James & Lauren. Trying to pull the planks of wood all at the same time was hard because we were all leaning on the wood which made it harder. It was great fun though! I couldn’t stop laughing. I laughed so hard I kept falling off and leaning forward which resulted in me accidently pushing Lauren or Anita off. It was good having the others support and help us out to finish the race. Never give up!

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.
