The Home School Liaison Print E-mail


The Liaison teacher’s role is crucial in assisting students in their preparation for the Snowy River Campus and maximizing the transfer of learning from the Snowy River Campus (SRC) to the home community. They have the responsibility of: to

  • assisting students in their task of identifying and designing a community learning project
  • preparing them to attend The Snowy River Campus
  • supporting them during their time away
  • spending time with them at The Snowy River Campus
  • assisting them in re-integration and the promotion and transfer of their experience

It is expected that Liaison staff be given a time allowance to fulfill these responsibilities.

It is also recommended that staff download and read the following document:

This manual is designed to help you understand what it is we do here at the Snowy River Campus. It is also designed to help guide you with some of the professional expectations and assist with personal challenges of working with students who are located a distance away from you. 

The following provides an outline of the areas that need to be considered by the Liaison School:
  • Preparation Phase
  • Support at The Snowy River Campus
  • Visit to The Snowy River Campus
  • Reintegration Phase

All Liaison teachers are required to complete and return a medical form prior to their visit to 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 four 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 fourth and newest campus, currently known as the Don Valley Campus is located at Don Valley, Yarra Ranges.
Our school community acknowledges the Gunaikurnai and Monero-Ngarigo people as the traditional custodians of the land upon which our school campus is 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.
