We were student leaders yesterday, 26th February, which was the community's first rest day. The day went smoothly with everyone relaxing and enjoying themselves and we managed to run a successful mini olympics activity which got everyoneoutside and having fun.

Both of us enjoyed being student leader and it was interesting to be in the teachers position for once and to see how hard it can be to get everyone to listen. After having a taste of our first rest day I think everyone is looking forward to the next.

Our personal goals were:
Catherine - To be organised and be a good student leader which was achieved because I was always ready for class and being student leader seemed to go well.
Jayme - To be organised and to do eveything on my 'to do list' which sadly was not achieved beacause I was at the beach all day but I worked hard at it and got most of the things done. All I missed out on doing was cleaning my room.

Seeing everything from the teachers' perspective made us realise what staff at S.R.C. go through to give us this amazing opportunity away from home. For the day we were kind of like them, but we have not nearly completed and acchieved as much these people have just to be able to teach us.

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 three 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 school community acknowledges the Gunaikurnai, Bidawel and Gundijmara people as the traditional custodians of the land upon which our school campuses are 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.
