Duck Production Print E-mail

Today Emily and I were student leaders. We ran a class called ‘Duck Production.’  This was where we had to manage our own business; making and selling top quality origami ducks! We also had to buy resources and paying fees. During the lesson we were in charge of predicting economic crises. This is where we communicated with the brokers and they would increase or decrease the buying prices.


One of our best crises was when Bird Flu hit and we had to destroy half of their makings! But our absolute favorite economic crisis was the Tsunami. This is where we walked out of the kitchen, armed with spray bottles, water bottles and sauce bottles filled with water. We saturated every table, including all the ducks and paper (and most of the students and the floor!) Whilst doing this the students defended their products by pouring their drink bottles on Carly drenching her or tackling Emily! At the end of the day everybody said they had fun and enjoyed the learning experience.

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.
