Food for Thought Print E-mail

So yesterday afternoon the food for thought committee did their thing. We were broken into three categories; Upper class, middle class and plebs. The upper class citizens were allowed an hour of free time, before being served a three course meal, consisting of; an entree of the finest garlic bread, a delicate plate of fresh, organic vegetables, and exquisitely crumbed fish, lightly seared. For desert, they were served a sumptuous chocolate brownie, all to be washed down with a rich, soothing glass of sparkling cranberry juice. The middle class citizens had an hour to spend time playing basketball with the family. For dinner they were served a simple but pleasant plate of fish and vegetables, with a comforting chocolate brownie to top it all off. The plebs, however, were subjected cruelly to an hour of back-breakingly difficult labour, with the searing evening sun beating down on them. After that they were delegated a meagre bowl of sticky rice, washed down with dirty water. They were then psychologically tortured by being forced to watch the upper class gents eat their lovely meal.

The night was a success and not only did we have a fun time but we learnt a lot about wealth distribution, what exactly is going on over-seas and what we can do to help. We all walked away with slightly depressing thoughts bouncing around in our heads, but maybe that will inspire at least some of us to do something about it.

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.
