Sad News

I am saddened to convey that our long-standing friend, postman, and cleaner at Alpine School Campus, Barry LeStrange, passed away over the weekend. Barry had been unwell for a while and his demise was not unexpected.

Baz joined the Alpine School Campus in 2000 as the cleaner and we developed a close personal friendship. He used to drive my kids to Omeo to kindergarten when he finished cleaning at school in the morning. As postie, Alice, Baz and I featured in a 2000 Australia Post TV advertisement: the theme was the “freezing of postal charges” and the tag-line was “our postie is really cool”. My acting career began and ended there. There was always a cheery response when Baz was asked to do a special run or pick-up for the school.

Barry was an adept hunter and taxidermist. Many mounted deer-heads in the Omeo area were his handiwork!

Vale, Baz. We will miss you.

FINAL Letter Home from the Alpine School Campus - Term 1 - March 23rd 2015

Windy with a shower or two

Here we are at the start of our final week, only a few days to go, and I think that students see that their time at the Alpine School Campus is now definitely finite! Five sleeps they keep telling me. Mind you, many students are ready to leave. There are still many important tasks for us all to attend to, and I welcome the greater independence and personal drive I witness in our students, your sons and daughters. It is a delight to work with young people in our environment and see them “doing”! They just get on with the job now, for the most part, and set their goals and review their outcomes.

Thank you for contributing to another successful term of the Alpine School. The “Separation Phase” of the Alpine School Experience concludes for the community of Term 1, 2015 on Saturday March 28th, signaling the beginning of the “Reintegration Phase”!

You can meet your son or daughter at any time after 10am that day. Please do not come earlier and definitely prior to midday. If you are late, please call. It is a source of considerable concern for the “last” students to see all their friends leave and have no idea why mum/dad is late. . Please drive carefully and slowly.

If you intend your son or daughter having any other travel arrangements not with you, and have not already done so, please contact us regarding travel permission forms or other details.

With every good wish on behalf of the Alpine School Team

Mark Reeves (Principal) & Russell Shem (Campus Principal - Alpine School)

The Alpine School Campus

School For Student Leadership

School for Student Leadership is a Victorian Department of Education and Early Childhood Development 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". It opened for students in term 1 2009.
