Today the 19th of March we were student leaders, it was also our third rest day, which was different for the both of us because we have never been student leader on a rest day.  Even thought there were no classes the day was still enjoyable, in the morning there was a soccer tournament, it was a very exciting game but unfortunately it was a draw. In the afternoon half of the students went to the beach whilst the other half relaxed, ate popcorn and watched a movie. The both of us really enjoyed listening to everyone playing their instruments.

Abbey’s personal goal was to work on her passport - I was quite happy with what I achieved on my passport, finishing the front page and working on all the criteria’s. Nathan’s goal was to clean his room. I was very proud to achieve my goal and so was my roommate, my room is now very neat and tidy. The community goal was for Nathan and I to run evening class. Unfortunately their was a last minute change to the program so we could not run evening class.

We both had a great day relaxing and being student leaders. We really noticed how we have to step up now because we are in the 5th week now and really have to start being more responsible and independent.  Over all we had an amazing day and are looking forward to the next few weeks.

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.
