[Sonja has now joined the staff at Haining Farm Campus]

I am a generalist teacher here at the School for Student Leadership. Having studied a Bachelor in Outdoor Education and a Graduate Diploma in Education, I have worked with young people for over ten years in various settings. I value building positive relationships and supporting young people through their ‘rite of passage’.

I am personally passionate about the environment and love getting outdoors. I am a keen gardener and enjoy working with students to help our school be more sustainable. I am also a qualified yoga teacher, and really enjoy sharing this with our students.

I am grateful for the excellent staff that I work with and enjoy coming into work each day, and I am lucky that I get to include my personal passions within my workplace. My highlight each term however is working with the great young people that attend our schools.

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.
