We were student leaders yesterday, 3rd March, which was the SRC's second rest day. There were some great activitites organised during the day, followed by a fun Bushdance in the evening.
It was a great opportunity for both of us to show initiative in our community and to take charge for once. 
Our community goal, which was to get everyone dressed up appropriately for the Bushdance, went really well. Everyone enjoyed dressing up in cowboy/cowgirl outfits and everyone had a great time dancing.
We also managed to achieve our personal goals:
Jack- My personal goal was to learn one new thing about each person and write it down. I successfully completed this before lunch was over. I learnt some very interesting facts about everyone.
Joanna- My goal was to get to know 5 people better.I successfully completed this goal by the end of the day. 
It was a great experience to be student leaders, it gave us a different perspective of life at the Snowy River Campus. We are both looking forward to the rest of our time here.

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.
