Parents Bulletins & Letters - No.3 - Last Week

Parent Bulletin No 3Third Letter Home to Parents - Last Week before Departure

Hello again and for the last time this term. We am hoping this letter reaches you before your son/daughter has returned home.

We describe an Alpine School experience as having three phases, and you may have heard this mentioned before? Phase one is the preparation phase (long since over for us this term, but it is happening now for our Term 2 2021 families and students); phase two is the separation phase (this is just beginning to draw to a close for our current community, families at home included). The final, reintegration phase for the community of Term 1 2021 is just beginning. Make no mistake, the reintegration phase is the longest phase (it can go on for all our lives), and can be the most challenging. It may require some pre-planning on all your behalves, and I hope we can provide some ideas or thoughts to assist this phase. Your Easter holiday break may be a real challenge and yet may also be the most fantastic you have ever had together.

Raft Building --

We wish you all the best for the forthcoming Easter holiday period and for the future. Enjoy the return of your wonderful sons, daughters or siblings who HAVE grown so much! Be immersed in and enjoy the “whitewater rafting years” ahead with them. I also highly recommend Michael Carr–Gregg’s book, Surviving Adolescents. I can also recommend another of Michael’s books, The Princess Bitchface Syndrome, details and brief synopsis provided below. If this is your daughter, and our teenage girls all display some of these characteristics, you must read this book!



In preparation for the departure day (Thursday April 1st, 2021) the broad outline of the morning proceedings at the Alpine School will be as follows…

You can meet your son or daughter at any time after 9.00am on Thursday April 1st.

9.00am – 9.30am
School doors open for parents to arrive and reacquaint with their children

9.30am – 10.30am
• All parents and students meet into dining room for student presentations.
• Student Presentations will involve a summary of their CLP as a group (1 minute), then each individual student will talk about their most important learning from the program that they can use in the future. Students will be awarded their participation certificate.
Show the end of term movie.
Staff to read a ‘farewell story’

• All parents and students depart.

NOTE: If you arrive after 9.30am, please enter the school building quietly as presentations will be in progress.
OR If you are running very late (after 10.30am), please call our school.

As the departure day approaches, some parents and families may wish to approve arrangements for their son or daughter to travel off the mountain with other families. In the past, some families have mentioned buses and other arrangements. Can I remind parents that if you intend making this arrangement, that you please advise, Russell Shem, the Campus Principal and your teacher overseeing your school team of your intentions.

We look forward to seeing you reunited with your child on Thursday April 1st 2021 from 9.00am.
As always, please travel safely along the Great Alpine Road and check the weather and road conditions.


Thank you for contributing to another successful term of the Alpine School. The “Separation Phase” of the Alpine School Experience concludes for the community of Term 1 2021 on Thursday 1st April, signaling the beginning of the “Reintegration Phase.

With every good wish on behalf of the Alpine School Team

Mark Reeves (Principal) & Russell Shem (Campus Principal - Alpine School)

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.
