Finishing painting the classroom doors at the local Zengcheng primary school - Jake and Taylah

Hello, our names are Jake and Taylah, and we were the student leaders for today. Today we went back to the local Zengcheng primary school to finish painting the classroom doors. We all painted a design that was selected by students back at Alpine. We really enjoyed working together to finish the door and make the primary school a more colourful and enjoyable learning space.

When we returned to Utahloy we were happy to see our new teachers for the remaining two weeks. We greeted Miss Winter, Mr Hill, Miss Wright, and Mr Clhlebna and said our farewells to Miss Barton, Mr Pike, Mr Porter, and Mr And Mrs Michie.

In the afternoon we saw a traditional Chinese Lion Dance. It was very loud, energetic, and different to our own dancing style back in Australia.

Later in the evening we had our own talent show that was held in the AV room of the primary school. We came to realise just how talented others in our group are and just how supportive the whole group is. Overall we had a very positive and enjoyable day and we are looking forward to the remaining two weeks of this amazing China experience.

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.
