Victoria's wilderness School for Student Leadership set to be expanded after 'excellent outcomes'

The School for Student Leadership Program and Year 9 students at the Snowy River Campus at Marlo featured in a segment on ABC News, aired Sunday March 5, 2017.
A full article was also published online at ABC.net.au

ABC News | Sun March 05 2017, by Jessica Longbottom

A wilderness adventure experience for Victorian public school students has been so successful it looks set to be expanded, giving more teenagers the chance to learn outdoor and leadership skills.

The Victorian Government is looking at establishing two new School for Student Leadership campuses in the Yarra Valley and the Grampians

They would be in addition to the three existing campuses: at Marlo in far east Gippsland, Mount Noorat in the western districts and Dinner Plain in the Victorian Alps.

There are no regular classes at the schools. Instead, the students participate in outdoor activities, classes on problem solving and leadership activities.

"If building other campuses was driven by data alone, then we would have ten more campuses," Marlo campus principal Robyn Francis said.

The outcomes for our students are excellent

Approximately 540 year nine students are selected from public schools around the state every year to attend one of the campuses for approximately ten weeks. However that only works out to roughly 2 per cent of Victorian public school year nine students.

But give them an opportunity to do something for someone else and watch them shine. They're fantastic.

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.
