Student Leaders for the Day! Print E-mail
Written by Zoe and Michelle, Snowy Students, T2 2011   

Zoe: My personal goal was to be a good role model student leader through god body language, speaking clearly and respecting others.

Michelle: My personal goal was to get everyone to class 5 minutes before class started and be learning ready. Our Community Goal: to encourage all the community to demonstrate respect in their behaviour and we will encourage this by supporting people to make better choices e.g. using the wings appropriately and respecting others while talking.

Zoe: During my time so far at SRC I have enjoyed every minute! I enjoy all the classes, the opportunities we get to learn, the friendly atmosphere and people and the helpful teachers. I enjoy all the activities like surfing, expos, canoeing, navigation and bike riding and have fun and trying my hardest with all of them. My highlight so far would have to be our first expo. I enjoyed the challenge, having heaps of fun with my fellow friends and knowing that I can overcome the tasks I set my mind to. I have learnt so much while being here, about leadership, teamwork, but most of all about myself and the person I can be.  My time at the Snowy River Campus will be an experience never to forget!!  

Michelle: My highlight so far has been the expo and canoeing with all of my friends in 1A. It has been a ball being here with all these nice people I have met, it also helps a lot that there are really nice teachers here they are very encouraging and they give good advice to becoming a better leader.

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 four 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 fourth and newest campus, currently known as the Don Valley Campus is located at Don Valley, Yarra Ranges.
Our school community acknowledges the Gunaikurnai and Monero-Ngarigo people as the traditional custodians of the land upon which our school campus is 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.
