At the End ... Print E-mail

We are getting to the end of our experience here at Snowy. Being here has opened my eyes to many new things and it’s been great. At the start we were 45 strangers who had never met any of the people here except for our school group and now, at the end we are like one big, happy family. None of us want to leave but we are all excited about seeing our family once again. It’s been a challenge being here but it’s been well worth it. I would say the hardest thing about being here would definitely be going outside of my comfort zone and starting conversations with new people at the start if the program. I have overcome that challenge because I have 44 new friends now ☺ A message I would like to pass onto the students who are coming to Snowy term one 2015 would have to be YOLO the experience. If you ever second guess anything just say YOLO and do it. Seriously don’t care of what people think because those who care don’t matter and those who matter, care.

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.
