Victorian Young Leaders to China Program
Victorian Young Leaders to China Program

The Alpine School Campus of the School for Student Leadership is a Victorian Department of Education and Early Childhood Development (DEECD) school specialising in leadership and personal development education for students in Year 9.

This term we are a pilot program for the Victorian Young Leaders to China initiative. This means we are part of a state wide program for young Victorians to participate in a new and dynamic cultural exchange.

The program for term 4, 2014 will consist of a week at The Alpine School at Dinner Plain to begin the program, then 4 weeks in China at Utahloy International School, Zheng Chen Campus, and then a final week back at The Alpine School, Dinner Plain Campus.

The Victorian Young Leaders to China Program gives students, teachers and school leaders the opportunity to be part of a life-changing international education experience.  As part of Victoria as a Learning Community and the vision to internationalise our education system, 1500 Victorian Year 9 students will travel to China over five years from 2014.

At the core, the Victorian Young Leaders to China Program is about students’ developing
capabilities for modern ways of living, thinking and working. This includes global knowledge, intercultural understanding and developing thinking and relationship skills for engaging in a global context such as collaboration, communication and linguistic ability. Students will participate in a rich learning program that will help them develop and demonstrate leadership skills, and to empower them to make an active contribution to their schools and communities as young leaders.

The program complements the Victorian Government’s Vision for Languages Education by sup-porting students to deepen their knowledge and understanding of another culture and language. It is designed to increase the number of students in all schools who include a language in addition to English in their senior secondary studies.

It is expected that all the rules and policies that apply the Alpine School, School for Student Leadership, will also apply when the students are in China.

Alpine School Life
Students will live and work in a very close environment with up to 44 of their peers; they sleep, eat, shower and do work under the one roof.

There are separate sleeping and showering facilities for both genders. There are 11 rooms in each of the two accommodation wings, one each for male and female. Two students will be allocated to each room. Staff share the responsibility of supervision of each wing and are responsible for the pastoral care of the students. The school has staff supervision accommodation in each wing.

There is a great deal of independence offered to the students. The students are responsible for helping maintain the school, organizing rosters, for doing various jobs around the school and generally controlling the nature of their home and place of learning.

There are lessons on human relationships that will arise from this lifestyle. Great friendships are made, tolerance is learned and teamwork is created. It will be rare to find an Alpine School Campus student who will not be proud of his or her involvement or to find an ex-Alpine School Campus student who does not readily identify with the school.

School life provides an excellent opportunity for bonding. Of course it would be wrong to imply that there are never tensions. Not many parents or teachers would think that living with teenagers is always blissful. Some teenagers need to be helped along the way to manage their social relationships in one form or another. This is a very important component of their learning environment.
