My Day as Student Leader - Jayden

Today as student leader we completed numerous activities that involved us as a student group to go beyond the duty of call. We firstly had to gather our bearings and make our way around the school in orienteering. This brought small groups even closer together. The next activity used those groups to drop and egg from our fourth story rooms without the egg from breaking. This was both challenging and fun. In the afternoon after another great lunch, we had to complete a group scenario whereby we had to rescue a fellow student from the middle of a lake and bring them to a safe zone via a homemade stretcher. The final activity for the day involved us having to trust our group in a trust fall activity. We basically free fell from a 1 metre tall BBQ backwards into the arms of our peers. This was extremely difficult to get our head around and yet, we all managed to do it. It was an enjoyable day focused on teamwork.

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.
