School for Student Leadership - Our Mission. Our Aims

I believe it is important for young people to connect with the natural world. I have a passion for helping young people develop, and forming healthy relationships with others in the outdoors. The East Gippsland coast is a great place for all this learning to take place. Being at Snowy River is about being a part of a dynamic teaching team and living in a learning environment with staff and students.

Leading to this experience I have studied Secondary Teaching, Outdoor Education and a Certificate 4 in Youth Work which has lead me to work casually as a teacher, working in the outdoors with school groups and a variety of volunteer and community work projects in Bendigo and around Victoria. My wife and I live in the area with a small and growing family.

I am looking forward to journeying with the students this term and the 'living and learning' at the 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.
