    Third Letter Home - 17 August 2018

    Hello again from the community of the Snowy River Campus!

    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 Banksia Bluff, 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 25 August and return them no later than 4.00pm Sunday 26 August.
    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.

    Arrival Day at the Snowy River Campus!

    Sunday July 22 2018
    A Snapshot of Letter 1 ...

    Welcome to the community of the Snowy River Campus for our Term 3 9 week program. SSL program.

    During the course of the next 9 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. We hope to post images on Facebook from time-to-time as well.
