Being Student Leader - Shani Print E-mail

This morning we worked on our CLP’s and later in the day went to the beach to do an activity called Coasteering.

We spent our CLP class time completing our master plan and writing the script for our presentation. We’ve had to change our CLP idea to a portable mural for the school I re-did the action plan and organised the dates.

Halfway through the class I had to leave to run a parent information session for some of the kids attending the SSL in term 1 next year. Mr Morton asked Michael and I to help him with it as we were student leaders for the day. We were both a little nervous beforehand but it ran really smoothly. I quite enjoyed giving advice to them and reflecting on my time at SSL.

For Coasteering I was in a group with Belle, Karys, and Michael. Coasteering is a form of orienteering but along the coast line. We had to climb over the rocks from west cape to East Cape. My group ended up taking the wrong track and going through a bush bike track instead of over the rocks. It was good to spend time with some different people and I quite enjoyed the activity.

Being student leader today I really noticed how I’d improved in my public speaking from last time. I hardly looked at the paper and always projected my voice.

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.
