Parents Bulletins & Letters - No#4

Fourth Letter Home to Parents: Friday November 18 2016

Letter Snapshot...

Hello again! We trust you all enjoyed the visiting weekend a week or so 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 mum and dad, 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 December 17th.

The program following the Visiting Weekend deliberately focuses upon the concepts of separation, grief, mourning and overcoming aspects of adversity. Many of the challenges of the program are used as metaphors for the part of their Passports dealing with risk and challenge.

In preparation for the departure day (Saturday December 17th) I would like to give you a broad outline of the morning proceedings at the Alpine School.

Please take note of the Last Day Departure running sheet as per below….

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 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 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.

    I know this has been mentioned previously, but this term we will be providing a School for Student Leadership report as it relates to the Australian Curriculum in Victoria (AusVELS). Students will receive a report aligned with AusVELS when they complete their SSL journey. In addition students present their individual growth and learning in the forms a Passport and Presentation of Learning and completion of their CLP (Community Learning Project).

    Nonetheless, 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 alone or with other families. In the past, some families have mentioned buses and other arrangements, even return flights home. Can I remind parents that if you intend taking up this arrangement, that you please advise Nicola Winter, the Acting Campus Principal or the Alpine School of your intentions.

    We look forward to seeing you reunited with your son or daughter on the morning of Saturday, December 17th between 9.30am – 10.00am in the morning.

    With every good wish on behalf of the Alpine School Team

    Mark Reeves (Principal) & Nicola Winter (Acting Campus Principal - Alpine School)

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.
