Parents Bulletins & Letters - Final

Tuesday September 13th, 2016, Letter From The Alpine School. (Altitude 1600m).

Clear skies and sunny today.

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

Here we are at the start of our final week, only a few days to go, and I think that students see that their time at the Alpine School Campus is now definitely finite! Five sleeps* they keep telling me. Mind you, many students are ready to leave. There are still many important tasks for us all to attend to, and I welcome the greater independence and personal drive I witness in our students, your sons and daughters. It is a delight to work with young people in our environment and see them “doing”! They just get on with the job now, for the most part, and set their goals and review their outcomes. They are finalizing their CLP work for when they return home, and the presentation day last week, when Principals, Liaison Teachers, representatives from the Department of Education and Training and other key stakeholders were here, was a triumph. I hope you can all cope with these skills and abilities upon their return, and that your sons and daughters use these skills appropriately?

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 3, 2016 on September 17, signaling the beginning of the “Reintegration Phase”!

You can meet your son or daughter at any time after 9.30am that day

9.30am – 10.00am
School doors open for parents to arrive and reacquaint with their children

10.00am – 11.00am
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.
Show the end of term movie.
Staff to read a ‘farewell story’

All parents and students depart.

NOTE: If you arrive after 10.00am, please enter the school building quietly as presentations will be in progress
OR If you are running very late (after 11.00am), please call. It can be a source of concern for the ‘last’ students to see all their friends leave and have no idea why mum/dad is late. Please drive carefully and slowly and remember to carry snow chains too.

If you intend your son or daughter having any other travel arrangements not with you, and have not already done so, please contact us regarding travel permission forms or other details.

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.
