    Hello again from the community of the Alpine School Campus!

    What a busy term we have had already. For the most part we have had beautiful Alpine Summer Days. There has been the odd thunderstorm and cool weather, but that’s all part of the Alpine environment. 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 or Biathlon 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 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.

    Sunday February 3 2019

    Arrival Day at The Alpine School (Altitude 1600m)

    A Snapshot of Letter 1 - Arrival Day!

    Welcome to the community of the Alpine School Campus for our Term 1, NINE-week program.

    uEducateUs Communications

    During the course of the next nine weeks, we shall be using the ICT platform called uEducateUs to communicate with you several times over the term. 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. We hope to post images on our website from time-to-time as well.
