Parents Bulletins & Letters - Final

September 15 2018 - FINAL Letter From The Alpine School. (Altitude 1600m).

Letter Snapshot...

Hello again and for the last time this term.

Rest day ski tour from Hotham to Dinner Plain. A very enjoyable day with some wild weather but spirits were high and the snow was still great

Here we are at the start of our final week and I think that students see that their time at the Alpine School Campus is now definitely finite! Seven sleeps they keep telling me. Mind you, some 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 was yesterday where the Principals, Liaison Teachers, representatives from the Department of Education and Training and other key stakeholders were here, it 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, 2018 on Saturday, September 22nd, signaling the beginning of the “Reintegration Phase”!

DEPARTURE DAY

You can meet your son or daughter after 9.30am on Saturday

9.30am – 10.00am
School doors open for families/guardians to arrive and reacquaint with their children

10.00am – 11.00am

Staff to read a ‘farewell story’

11.00am
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.

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.

Lastly, Please drive carefully, remembering that vehicle chains must be carried by law and they can be hired in Bright, Harrietville or Omeo.

With every good wish on behalf of the Alpine School Team

Parents Bulletins & Letters - No#4

Fourth Letter Home to Parents - September 5 2018

Letter Snapshot...

Hello again! We trust you all enjoyed the visiting weekend a couple of weeks back, despite the long distances involved for many of you? The weekend was for you. We have heard many varied and mixed reports from your sons and daughters about the weekend, but more good than otherwise, which is totally normal! Some said, “It was great to see my family, but I couldn’t wait to get back to the Alpine School!” You need to be assured that the time of real settlement at the Alpine School Campus is now happening for your son or daughter. Paradoxically, the time of departure is also rapidly approaching. I am sure you will notice the difference in your son or daughter between the recent visit and the conclusion on Saturday, September 22nd.

An amazing alpine morning ... 2A getting in some ski practice

The program following the visiting weekend deliberately focuses upon the concepts of separation, mourning and overcoming aspects of adversity. Many of the challenges of the program are used as metaphors for the part of their “Portfolios” dealing with risk and challenge.

In preparation for the departure day (Saturday September 22nd) the broad outline of the morning proceedings at the Alpine School will be as follows…

DEPARTURE DAY

9.00am – 9.30am - Alpine School staff will hold a departure ceremony for students

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 in the 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 will take away with them to use in the future.
  • Show the end of term movie.
  • Staff to read  a ‘farewell story’

11.00am - All parents and students depart.

NOTE: If you arrive after 10.00am, please enter the school building quietly as presentations will be in progress.

As the departure day rapidly approaches, some parents and families may wish to make arrangements for their son’s/daughter’s travel off the mountain with other families. In the past, some families have mentioned buses and other arrangements. Can I remind parents that ifyou intend making this arrangement, that you please advise your liaison teacher at the Alpine School of your intentions?

We look forward to seeing you reunited with your son or daughter on the morning of Saturday, September 22 between 9.30am – 10.00am in the morning.

Gnurad Gundidj Campus
Snowy River Campus
The Alpine School Campus

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.
