Parents Bulletins & Letters - No#4

Fourth Letter Home to Parents - March 14 2018

Letter Snapshot...

We trust you all enjoyed the visiting weekend a week or so back, despite the long distances involved for many of you? The weekend was for you. We have heard many varied and mixed reports from your sons and daughters about the weekend, but more good than otherwise, which is totally normal! Some said, “It was great to see my family, but I couldn’t wait to get back to the Alpine School!” You need to be assured that the time of real settlement at the Alpine School Campus is now happening for your son or daughter. Paradoxically, the time of departure is also rapidly approaching. I am sure you will notice the difference in your son or daughter between the recent visit and the conclusion on Wednesday March 28th.

Rest Day Activity - Playing Dodge Ball

The program following the visiting weekend deliberately focuses upon the concepts of separation, mourning and overcoming aspects of adversity. Many of the challenges of the program are used as metaphors for the part of their “Portfolios” dealing with risk and challenge.

DEPARTURE DAY

In preparation for the departure day (Wednesday March 28th) the broad outline of the morning proceedings at the Alpine School will be as follows….

Please take note of the Wednesday March 28th Departure running sheet as per below….

9.00am – 9.30am - Alpine School staff will hold a departure ceremony for students

9.30am – 10.00am - School doors open for parents to arrive and reacquaint with their children

10.00am – 11.00am

  • All parents and students meet into dining room for student presentations.
  • Student Presentations will involve a summary of their CLP as a group (1 minute), then each individual student will talk about their most important learning from the program that they will take away with them to use in the future.
  • Show the end of term movie.
  • Staff to read  a ‘farewell story’
  • 11.00am - All parents and students depart.

    NOTE: If you arrive after 10.00am, please enter the school building quietly as presentations will be in progress.

    As the departure day rapidly approaches, some parents and families may wish to make arrangements for their son’s/daughter’s travel off the mountain with other families. In the past, some families have mentioned buses and other arrangements. Can I remind parents that if you intend making this arrangement, that you please advise our Business Manager, Sally Doyle at the Alpine School of your intentions.

    We look forward to seeing you reunited with your son or daughter on the morning of Wednesday, March 28th between 9.30am – 10.00am in the morning.
    As always, please travel safely.

    With every good wish on behalf of the Alpine School Team

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

Parents Bulletins & Letters - No.3

Parent Bulletin No 3Third Letter Home to Parents - Pre Parent Visiting Weekend
Monday 26 February 2018

Hello again from the community of the Alpine School Campus!

What a busy term we have had already. A mixture of sunshine, the odd shower and cool winds has certainly made our expeditions interesting. The first expedition groups have headed-out and returned already. They donned backpacks and made their way out to make their way to a camping location known as Mother Johnstons 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 an 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 to immediate family members?
Pick-up times are between 9am on Saturday March 3rd, and the return time is Sunday March 4th by 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. If any families are unable to attend, or wish to seek alternative arrangements, please let us know as soon as possible and we may be able to assist.

--

The Alpine School experience is ultimately a very personal one for parents and guardians, students and families and each experience is slightly different. We thank you for being a part of our community. We look forward to seeing you on the visiting weekend and remember to check the Alpine Weather forecast, drive safely and carry vehicle chains if required to do so.

The Alpine School Campus

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.
