Bethany's Student Leader Day Print E-mail

Today I had the half day bike ride. It was a rather tiring and fun experience where we went to Marlo and back in 16km. I thought I was going to hate it but it turned out to be super great and I bonded with some of my team while riding.

While being a student leader I was letting the power of control take over me a bit and I bossed people around a bit which I didn’t want to do that day. The first time was a student leader I was a little more confident and not as straight forward with the community but this time I was slightly more straight forward and a little less confident when I talked to the whole group. I successful completed my goal for the day by being nice and complimenting everyone which I was very proud of because usually I can be slightly rude and not give many compliments to people who deserve them.

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.
