Echuca College - CLP Relay for Life - Photogallery Print E-mail
Written by Echuca College Term 3 2009, Snowy River Campus   

With the support of other term 3 students, Echuca College participated in the Relay for Life walk in their community. We had a reunion and celebrated with Shaun, Sarah, Jayde, Aidan, Brandon and Ashley their CLP. Well done everyone!

As part of their CLP Project the Echuca College students decided to get involved in the Relay for Life because many of them have been affected by it and thought it would be a great cause to support. The students are also doing a movie and a raffle to help raise money for the Cancer Council. They invited their Snowy teacher Tiwana Merrit and all of the other students from term 3 along as well as a means of a having a Term 3 reunion!

Lakes Entrance Students 'Growing Together' Print E-mail

Lakes Entrance Students Jaime-Lee and Mingara Lakes Entrance Secondary College students Jamie-Lee Munro and Mingara Wandin recently joined 40 Year 9 students from all around Victoria to complete a nine week residential leadership program at the School for Students Leadership – Snowy River Campus in Marlo.

Students are selected based upon their Community Learning Project which they manage before, during and after attending the Snowy River Campus.

Jamie-Lee and Mingara designed a project called ‘Growing Together’ which involved planting indigenous plants at Lakes Entrance Secondary College with the help of Grade 6 and Year 7 students and they have almost completed the final stage. Each garden bed represents a different Gunai/Kurnai clan and ancestor poles have been made which will soon be placed in each bed.

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.
