Expo Skills and Leadership-ness Print E-mail

Being student leader was intimidating at first but as the day went on it got easier to talk in front of everyone. Getting people to listen was complicated at some points but with the power of being leader it made it easier to get their attention. The whole experience was challenging but we overcame every problem, and it was also very fun to have the power to be a leader to the community.

Our (Tom and Bethany’s) favourite class this week was on Tuesday when we had expo skills. 1B worked really well together in helping each other set up tents and lunch.

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.
