CLP Resources

It is recommended that Home School Liaison Teachers visit the following websites:

The intention is that they are to be accessed by liaisons in order to create realistic, manageable student owned CLP projects - the ruMAD site has the 8 keys to madness which is of particular help. In order to access the 8 keys to madness, teachers or facilitators need to register and then access TOOLKIT.

Montaser Rahama:

The reason why I wanted to come to the Snowy River Campus is because I wanted to be a better leader for myself and others and also to be a better person, son, brother and nephew for my family because I am pretty immature times. I can give my family mainly my mother some pretty bad days so I want to be better than that so I can be a better person and relative and a better friend.

The Snowy River Campus is one big building with a kitchen. There is a boys wing for boys with rooms and toilets and a girls wing with rooms and toilets. In both wings there are two washing machines and a dryer. Out back is a backyard with a clothes line. The site of the school is smaller than a normal school but compared to the pictures on the school website it looks bigger. For free time here we play a lot of table tennis and I mean a lot! I think table tennis is my new favourite game. I might need to ask my mum to get rid of my basketball hoops and switch it with a table tennis table. The teachers here are really nice and they are willing to help anyone to achieve their goals.

My highlight since I have been here would be meeting new friends and fitting in. In my mind before I came here I thought I would not fit in at this school and would have no friends. I thought it was going to be really nerve racking but I made friends really easily. I didn’t really need to do anything. I just let my dreadlocks do the talking because I had two other guys who also had dreadlocks and we were like the three musketeers but with dreadlocks and no swords or moustaches.

Why I came to the Snowy River Campus (SRC) is because I want to be a better leader and I thought it would be a good experience to have. I want to learn more about being a leader. This is also going to make me a better person and people can look up too.

Whilst I have been here at SRC I have been living in a community with 43 other students. There are duties that happen every day. Living in an all girls wing with a room mate is a good experience. Through living in a community I have learnt the importance of having different personalities and I have learnt how to work with other people and how to share two washing machines with 24 other girls. I have been on my first Expo, which was very hard because I had to carry a 10-15kg bag and had to walk on sand for two days in a row. The Expo was three days long and through this experience I have learnt to push myself when things are getting hard.

My highlights since I have been here would be meeting new people, a new environment that I have fitted into well. There are also lots of fun activates to do every day.

Community Learning Project (CLP)

Our Community Learning Project (CLP)
For our Community Learning Project (CLP) we plan to go into Trafalgar High School to work with young people from grades three and four. We aim to teach the young people about the importance of being fit and healthy. We see this generation not really knowing how to be fit and healthy, so if we teach them about it they will teach the next generation. We hope that this will see an improvement in Trafalgar’s community’s health and happiness. We are going to play some games with fruit and vegetables as in Fruit Salad and flash cards. Our motto is ‘Be Healthy, Be Active’.

Community Learning Project (CLP)

For the past few weeks, students from Mount Waverley Secondary College have created a Community Learning Project (CLP) here at the Snowy River Campus. The project we are doing is called the H.O.S.T. Program (Helping Overall School Transitions) and our aim is to begin ‘strengthening school support’ between the campus’ in our school, as well as surrounding primary schools.

Mount Waverley Secondary College Student Team

Our team includes: Laura Chauca Diaz, Joshua Griffiths-Hunt, Rhys Incoll, Jessalyn Lim and Jack Sephton. Our vision is for a community where the students, teachers and parents from Mount Waverley Secondary College and surrounding primary schools are connected and are able to communicate between each other to form relationships freely and easily.

We hope to strengthen the bond between our school’s campus’ by getting students to move between the different sites. We will get students from the senior site to play games with the students of the junior school, and have a small information day where we will get them to familiarise themselves with the senior site map. We will also tell them any differences between the junior and senior classes and the overall school days. Senior students will also participate in the junior campus’ classes, and help them with their work during the lesson, to aid them in their learning. All of these activities will get the students to form relationships with the older students from our senior site – who they will see in future years.

We will also work with the year eight leaders and go to different local primary schools to participate in various activities with the students. We will have a small ‘interview’ to answer any questions, and ease any worries, they may have about high school, as well as run a high school simulation day to get the students comfortable with the idea of moving up to secondary.

Koo Wee Rup Secondary College Student Team Our home school is Koo Wee Rup Secondary College. The school is located in South Gippsland in the Shire of Cardinia. We are around an hour’s drive from the city and it is sitting in a swamp area. We have five people attending the School for Student Leadership from Koo Wee Rup. The students are Alana Rodgers, Keegan Richardson, Cohen Tatnell, Lauren Bromiley and Amber Walker.

Some of the classes that have been engaging are when Beau Vernon came and talked to us about his three key values; optimism, resilience and that failing is okay. I think this class taught us a lot of things and gave us a different perspective on life. Another class that we thought was engaging would have to be surfing. This was because we learnt new skills and challenged ourselves in an area we haven’t had much experience in before.

Community Learning Project

For our Community Learning Project we plan to spend time at the elderly citizen’s center. We hope to talk to the residents about our experiences and do activities with them. We would also like to learn about what their lives were like back when they were our age. We plan to run three sessions with them and then we can work out if they want another class done. Some of the activities we hope to do with the residents are cooking, crafts and board games. Our vision is that by talking and interacting with the elderly we are able to bring our generations together. We have named it ‘Regeneration- bringing generations together’. The motto that we have come up with is ‘respect all generations!

Community Learning Project (CLP)

Our CLP is called ‘Life History: The stories of their lives’. Our school group has decided to make our CLP about supporting the elderly feel valued, respected and important to the whole community. The way we are going to achieve this is by developing a book about the residents at Kew Gardens Aged Care. During term three we will go to Kew Gardens and interview them about their lives and what it was like to live back when they were young. We will include all the interviewees stories in a book to give to them and their families.

When we get back to our home school, we plan to interview and write the stories throughout term. In term four we are going to edit and publish our book. We have already held two fundraisers and so far have raised $500. We are planning to do other fundraiser when we get back to our home school so we can have enough money to publish our book.
