Snow and Cold Weather Conditions Anticipated for Student Departure Day.

Dear all,
I am confident you are all aware of the expected weather this coming Saturday June 28th being the students departure day. I anticipate it will be cold and snowing.

Our students, your children will be ready to be picked up from 10.00am and I know that in an earlier letter I advised it best to pick them up between 10.00am and 12 midday.

I am writing to say that if you arrive later than midday we will understand, as whichever direction you choose to travel whether it be via Bright and Harrietville or via Omeo, you will need to hire chains and possibly need to fit them as you approach the Alpine School. Chains can be hired in Bright at the Shell Service Station or Bright Ski Hire, in Harrietville at Hoys Ski Hire OR in Omeo at Billy’s Service Station.

If you are running late (as in after midday) please feel free to contact the school (03) 5150 8100 so that we can get an indication of where you are and how late you might be, to then pass on to your son or daughter.

Please allow time, drive slowly and with care. When I am driving on snow, I slow down to 40kmh and make sure I never tailgate.

See you on Saturday morning,

Kind regards,
Russell Shem - Campus Principal

5th ( and FINAL) Letter Home from the Alpine School Campus - Term 2 - June 23 2014


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 2, 2014 on Saturday June 28, 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.
