2020 Important Dates - School for Student Leadership - Snowy River Campus

Saturday 15th February

Dear Parents, Guardians, Families and Carers,

I write to inform that at present all fire activity nearby to The Alpine School has been contained and there has been plenty of rain at Dinner Plain. We are planning on opening Sunday, February 23rd, 2020 and look forward to your arrival between 10.00am – Midday.

Kind regards,

Russell Shem - Campus Principal

Sunday 26th January

This advice applies to students attending Snowy River Marlo and Alpine School Dinner Plain Campuses in Term 1, 2020 only. Gnurad-Gundidj Campus will open as scheduled.

Schools affected are: Ararat, Footscray, Horsham, Manor Lakes, Bannockburn, Braybrook, Brauer, Rosehill, Boronia, Mt Beauty, Canterbury Girls, Yarrawonga, Kew, Scoresby, Templestowe, Numurkah.

As you will be aware, Alpine and Snowy Campuses have been threatened by the fires that have impacted the Alpine and East Gippsland districts. Both facilities are intact and have not been impacted at this point. Snowy Campus has been commandeered by DELWP and ADF for fire-fighter and recovery accommodation and will continue for at least three weeks.

As you can appreciate, the situation is dynamic and changeable. At this stage, we are working towards having the campuses able to open on Sunday 23 February and conclude Saturday 28 March as planned. This is a five-week program. There will not be a visiting weekend.

We understand the anticipation felt for the program and share the disappointment this will mean to students, families and schools. Of course, the safety and wellbeing of our students, staff and community is paramount. We will continue to monitor the situation and provide advice directly to schools to confirm these arrangements, or otherwise, as time progresses.

I am sure we all share our thoughts and best wishes to our impacted schools, colleagues, students and communities.

Kind regards

School for Student Leadership.
