Parents Bulletins & Letters - No.2

Parent Bulletin 22nd Letter Home from the Snowy River Campus, Thursday 20 October, 2016

Letter Snapshot

Welcome again to the Snowy River Campus. Here we are after more than a week already. Time has flown by and I am really pleased with how things are progressing at our school.

Homesickness is a normal emotion at this time in the program, although it does tend to diminish. If you think that your son or daughter is still unreasonably homesick, do call us and we can compare notes, so to speak. None of us can really predict how this anxiety may manifest itself. Our staff members really do make a priority of ensuring students’ wellbeing during these first, more unsettled weeks; they will give you a normal call in the next week. How are you coping with being “son or daughter sick”?

Term 4 Students - embracing the many new experiences to be had at the Snowy River Campus

This week and next week the students will head out on expeditions for the first time. I am sure this will challenge many of them, as it involves carrying a back-pack, hiking up beaches to beautiful locations, one a fresh water lagoon, the other on the Banksia Bluff and camping overnight. They have undertaken some terrific team building activities, such as “bridge building” where the team has to construct a jetty out to a “sinking boat” and rescue all the treasure. I know the students enjoy learning in these practical and hands-on ways.

Parents Bulletins & Letters - No 1 // Arrival Day!

Parent Bulletin 1First Letter Home to parents of Snowy River Campus Students,
Sunday 9 October 2016

Welcome to the community of the Snowy River Campus for our term 4, ten week program

Teams Day - Term 4

During the course of the next 10 weeks we shall be emailing you a number of times. These emails will also be posted on our website and a student blog will be enabled for you to see and read about current and daily events. The content of the communications is to assist you with your side of the Snowy River Campus Experience. The emails will not necessarily deal with individuals and their achievements, but more about the living and learning process all students will be undertaking. We want to provide you with some early reminders and information for your arrival day and to perhaps help you on your return and continued journey.

Mark Reeves (Principal) & Robyn Francis (Campus Principal - Snowy River 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.
