Parents Bulletins & Letters - No.3

Parent Bulletin No 33rd Letter Home from the Alpine School Campus - Term 2 - 18 May, 2015

Frost and Sunny

A mixture of sunshine, rain, wind and snow has certainly made our expeditions interesting. The first expedition groups have headed-out and returned already. They donned backpacks and XC skis to make their way out to a camping location known as JB Hut for a night of camping, before returning back to school. The students were well prepared and so full of excitement, apprehension, “coolness” and worry, all mixed into one! We know, however, that what they will learn through their undertaking will put them in great stead. One of the concepts we use in designing our type of educational experience is to move from the known to the unknown. In moving to, and living at, the Alpine School Campus, students initially are in a much unknown environment (socially, physically, emotionally, geographically and so on), which they soon become comfortable and familiar with. It is a very deliberate part of the process of learning both leadership skills and to be enterprising.

Visiting Weekend

The visiting weekend is this coming weekend by the time you receive this, and we look forward to seeing you again. Can we stress that it is a family occasion, for parents’ benefit, and should be limited (on the Sunday return) to immediate family members?

Pick-up times are between 9.00am and midday on Saturday 23 May, and join us for a cup of tea or coffee on Sunday 24 May between 3pm and 4pm. We ask that you return with your son or daughter by 3pm and depart by 4pm. Some families may wish to arrive and leave earlier due to the travel involved or family commitments. The school will be staffed from Midday on the Sunday.

We always have the potential of poor weather at this time of the year. Please allow extra time for these driving conditions and the winding road. If any families are unable to attend, or wish to seek alternative arrangements, please let us know as soon as possible and we are able to assist.

Second Letter Home from The Alpine School - Monday May 4 2015

Clear skies with a change on the way...

Welcome again to the community of the Alpine School Campus. Congratulations again on the achievement of being personally, as a team, as a family and as a school selected to participate in this Alpine School experience.

The purpose of these letters is to provide you a perspective of the intended program here at the Alpine School. What your son or daughter experiences, and then of course what they may communicate to you, may vary! This is quite normal! We will not be writing about individuals, more about the experiences of the community as a whole.

It seems amazing that a couple of weeks have passed already. As we indicate to your son or daughter, the time here seems to pass at an accelerating pace. I think it is something to do with the familiarisation of the living situation here. And familiar they certainly seem to be! I am really delighted at how readily our students this term have settled-in.

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.
