Local Learning Project Day - 9/11/16 Print E-mail
Written by Charlotte and Grace, Snowy River Campus Students, Term 4 2016   

This Wednesday Snowy River Campus had our LLP day which stands for Local Learning Project. Orbost Primary School came for the day and we all had the best time with them. The task was for us to get into small groups of about three and create a presentation for our local primary school kids. We were all given a topic we had to teach the kids about. Some of the groups presentation were rock pools, bush safety, native animals, whale and lots more. We were all really eager for LLP and when the day came everyone was excited.

The day started off by us getting our buddies and playing games with them. After a few games each we got into our rotation groups and went to our first class with the kids. We then moved onto the second class after about 20 minutes and then sat down and had morning tea with them. It was great because everyone was getting to know the primary school kids and I enjoyed getting to know my buddy and all of the other kids. We then had rotation 3 and 4. I really liked interacting with kids, I loved planning the presentation and teaching the kids about the local area. I hope the primary kids learnt a lot and took something away from all of our presentations. We all had lunch and then said goodbye.

My highlight for the day was after lunch playing Food and Water and a big game of tag with everyone. We all had so much fun and it was a great way to finish off the day. LLP was a great learning experience for us being the teachers and learning to keep our presentations interesting. All in all, it was a wonderful day and a beneficial learning experience.

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.
