School for Student Leadership - Our Aims. Our Mission.
Russell Shem

Russell ShemI feel very fortunate to have been given the opportunity to work at the Alpine School Campus. It is located in a very special part of the Victorian Alps and the team of staff who I work with are all committed and highly capable. They too, also share a love for the outdoors and their local environment. Working with students from across the State, brings a range of life experiences to the school, whether it be from a country or city perspective, our students are all very special.

Within my teaching, I have spent the past 20 consecutive years working with adolescents in a number of different residential schools and programs within Victoria. I have worked at Lauriston’s Howqua Campus, spent six years at Geelong Grammar School’s Timbertop Campus in a variety of educational roles including the Director of Outdoor Education and also taught at Wesley College’s Clunes Campus. All of these places have been highly rewarding, unique to their setting, memorable and highly experiential and I am grateful to have worked in such wonderful environments within Victoria.

Educationally, I have pursued studies in the areas of Automotive Mechanics, Applied Science (Recreation Planning and Management), Outdoor Education, Health and Physical Education, SOSE and ESL and completed a Certificate in Positive Education with The University of Melbourne. Most recently, I have enrolled in a Diploma of Positive Psychology course that I am still working on completing. I have also been fortunate enough to spent time visiting indigenous communities in Northern Australia and again most recently in leading groups of students to China through my current work. I am appreciative of these opportunities as I continue to learn.

Family. I live in Bright with Kathryn and we have three beautiful and energetic boys, whose teenage and adolescent years are flourishing at present; Alex (aged 20), Matthew (aged 18) and William (aged 16). Apart from my love of spending time with my family, my interests extend to football, fishing, cycling, camping, landscape photography and cross-country skiing.

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.
