    FINAL Letter Home to Parents: September 15 2018

    Letter Snapshot...

    Hello again and for the last time this term.

    Here we are at the start of our final week and I think that students see that their time at the Alpine School Campus is now definitely finite! Seven sleeps they keep telling me. Mind you, some 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. They are finalizing their CLP work for when they return home, and the presentation day was yesterday where the Principals, Liaison Teachers, representatives from the Department of Education and Training and other key stakeholders were here, it was a triumph. I hope you can all cope with these skills and abilities upon their return, and that your sons and daughters use these skills appropriately?

    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, 2018 on Saturday, September 22nd, signaling the beginning of the “Reintegration Phase”!

    Fourth Letter Home to parents - Wednesday 5th September 2018

    Hello again! We trust you all enjoyed the visiting weekend a couple of weeks 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 Saturday, September 22nd.

    2nd Letter Home - August 3 2018

    Letter Snapshot...

    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 familiarization of the living situation here. And familiar they certainly seem to be! I am very pleased at how readily our students this term have settled-in. Notwithstanding, they are pleased to be ‘online’ now with the recent introduction of laptops after a short delay.

    A Snapshot of Letter 1 - Arrival Day!

    Welcome to the community of the Alpine School Campus for our Term 3, NINE week program.

    During the next nine weeks we shall be writing to you several times. These letters will also be posted on our website for you to see and read about current and daily events. The content of the communications is to assist you with your side of the Alpine School Campus Experience. The letters will not necessarily deal with individuals and their achievements, but more about the living and learning process all students will be undertaking. We want to provide you with some early reminders and information for your arrival day and to perhaps help you on your return and continued journey.

    Students are involved in a number of important processes this term; discovering their learning preferences, expeditions, selection of the teams for later terms, hosting a range of guests, developing a personal passport of their learning, presentation of their learning and ultimately a Community Learning Project presentation for important school and community leaders.
