Starting in 2015, we will be showing some M-rated films to students. For this we require a new M-Rated Film consent form to be filled out by all parents and for them to read a short bio of each film which has been included below.

All chosen movies have been reviewed by teaching staff and deemed appropriate for use in our program. We will provide adult supervision while screening movies and review movies with students if/as necessary. By law, adult supervision is recommended while screening M-rated movies for any person less than 15 years of age.

5th ( and FINAL) Letter Home from the Alpine School Campus - Term 3 - September 15th 2014

Overcast and getting cooler

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 3, 2014 on Saturday September 20th, 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 and remember to carry snow chains at this time of the year. It is a law.

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)

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.
