Term 2 Students - 22 May 2018

Hello again from the community of the Snowy River Campus!

We are still flat out here and going strong. By the time you read this, the first expedition groups have headed-out and returned. They have bushwalked along the nearby coastal bluffs of Cape Conran camping out at the beautiful Dock Inlet, putting into practice all the skills learned in their expedition preparation sessions. The students were well prepared and so full of excitement, apprehension, “coolness” and worry, all mixed into one! I know, however, that what they will learn through their undertaking will put them in great stead. One of the concepts we use in designing our type of education experience is to move from the known to the unknown. In moving to, and living at, the Snowy River Campus, students initially are in a much unknown environment (socially, physically, emotionally, geographically and so on), which they soon become comfortable and familiar with. I am sure this is conveyed in correspondence, and will be obvious at the visiting weekend. The expeditions are another move from known to unknown, from the known existence of the Snowy River Campus into the wild coastal environment and with lightweight tents. The next expedition will be largely canoe-based on the wonderful estuarine environment. The challenges are new and different to the first expedition. It is a very deliberate part of the process of learning both leadership skills and to be enterprising.

VISITING WEEKEND

The visiting weekend is rapidly approaching. You may pick up your son/ daughter at 9.00am, Saturday 26 May and return them no later than 4.00pm Sunday 27 May..
If you need to drop your child off earlier than midday on the Sunday please inform the campus and we will make the necessary arrangements.

Remember this weekend is about spending quality time with your son or daughter, enjoying their company and encouraging them to share their experiences thus far. We strongly recommend only immediate family members be a part of this reunion.

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.
