Raft building

It’s our last 2 days here at SRC everyone is making the most of the days and everyone is having a really good time and making everyone else’s time a nice time too.

So I am feeling really happy about going home I can’t wait to see everyone but I am sad to because I don’t want to leave everyone. My time at Snowy has been fantastic I have learnt so many new things and I have gained so much I can use at home. The one thing I have learnt that I will use at home and everywhere is self-confidence. At the start if my experience I was really shy but being here and I have been talking in front of everyone has made me not so shy. Being at Snowy has changed my life in a good way, I cannot wait to go home and share to everyone what I have learnt. I have loved my time here at Snowy if you are thinking of coming go please it will be the best thing in your life, I promise you.

Lauren, Braybrook

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.
