So far SSL has been absolutely fantastic. Print E-mail

TobiasHello! My name is Tobias. We just started week four, nearly half way through our experience. As for me, I can’t believe how fast these weeks have flown by. I’ve learnt so much and have gained a huge amount of experience from everything we’ve done. So many activities like hiking, surfing, canoeing, first-aid and even bridge building. During my time here I’ve gained important life skills already which have given me more confidence and maturity. Today we did a class all about presentations and public speaking, yesterday we did a class about how we think and how learn best and before that, a session about beliefs and values.

Personal development and teamwork skills have been a big focus, but classes aren’t like normal classes at all. We have engaging guest speakers, games, group activities and dynamic class discussions instead of work sheets and essays. So far SSL has been absolutely fantastic. For all those who are scared of camp food, the food here is really good and the cooks are very friendly! In fact, all the staff are great people.

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.
