LLP Day Print E-mail

Students from Orbost North 

   Today was one of the big days we had been looking forward to, but also dreading heaps. It was LLP day and after 9 o’clock headcount the race was on to get organised. Each expo group had 3 teams that each had a topic to present to a group of younger students from Orbost North primary school.
Today was one of the big days we had been looking forward to, but also dreading heaps. It was LLP day and after 9 o’clock headcount the race was on to get organised. Each expo group had 3 teams that each had a topic to present to a group of younger students from Orbost North primary school. When the students arrived we basically introduced the school and then went out to play the welcome games. We then split into a groups and started presenting. My group went first and our topic was rock pools. We had 4 students to teach and their names were Steph, Vikki, Max and Josh and they were really co-operative and fun. After our groups presentation we rotated to the others. Their topics were ‘Large Sea Animals’ and ‘Surfing’. After each activity we all got really good feedback and the students seemed to really enjoy it and contributed to each of our talks. When lunch was over we were told that the students didn’t have to go back for another half an hour, so we decided to play another game with the whole school. Overall, it was one of the great experiences in my time here because it’s not every day that you get to be the teacher and get to choose what you talk about.

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.
