Yesterday we were student leaders first time, we were going into it not at all that sure of what to expect. In this day we started off with the NAPLAN, everyone worked effectively during this session and we were all thankful that it was over quickly.

That afternoon was a ‘rest’ afternoon, some students had the opportunity to go for a walk down to Cape Conran and others stayed back at the campus. We were two of the people that had a lazy day and hung back. From the reports of the people who did go for the walk, it was really enjoyable and a good opportunity. We will definitely join in next time.

That evening we had the opportunity to run the evening class. In this class the community was required to work in teams of 4 or 5, and construct a paper tower that would be supported on its own. The girl’s team won, many others found it difficult to get the tower off the ground and stand freely.

As student leaders for yesterday we both think we did a pretty good job, we had a good experience and now we know what to expect for next time.

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.
