An Experience Print E-mail
Written by Courtney, Snowy Student Term 1 2009   

A note to any one that has this opportunity,
Take it, use it and learn from it.
We were the little seeds, growing.
Growing and learning.
Without this experience I would be just the same.
But I’m not.
I’m new, but I’m me.

Things I have learnt from this experience;
Take it, seize it. There may never be the same opportunity.
You can do more then you think.
You are stronger then what you think and so is your willpower.
You don’t find time, you make it. Plan, plan, plan.

If you could, would you?
Take your leap of faith and
be sure that you will not fall lower then you will fly.

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.
