Alpine Lessons
Alpine Lessons - An Overview

This section highlights a number of the unique lessons students get to experience at the Alpine School Campus. In designing the local curriculum we have aimed to select classes which are relevant, enjoyable, engaging and integrated with learning from the core School for Student Leadership educational program.

Our unique program at the Alpine School focuses on engaging the students in activities which allow them to explore and learn about the local environment and cultures; both indigenous and non-indigenous. Gaining a sense of belonging in local places through knowledge and experience is a key learning outcome.

Providing safe and enjoyable outdoor experiences which facilitate the practical application of knowledge gained from Thinking and Learning, Peer Skills, Leadership and Teamwork classes is another primary objective of the localised program.

Alpine Lessons - Bike Riding

Introduction to mountain bikes and off road riding.

Bike Riding

The desired outcomes of this unit are to install the students with confidence in all aspects of biking.

We introduce the students to riding in the Alpine environment (both on and off road) and hope to build their confidence so they can utilise their time on bikes whilst at the Alpine School Campus. The lessons also help students to develop a thorough understanding on bike repair and bike maintenance.

Alpine Lessons - First Aid

Each student undertakes Basic Emergency First Aid during the early weeks of our program. The course follows current standards established by Life Saving Victoria. The lessons are taught by Alpine School teachers who have been trained by Life Saving Victoria.

The lessons cover Cardio Pulmonary Resuscitation (CPR), managing injuries such as sprains, bleeding, fractures and burns and the management of shock. The students learn through observation and participation in class, as well as practicing CPR on manikins. There are also lessons in the outdoor environment, with scenarios designed around potential real-life situations the students may face when on expedition or out and about our local area.

Alpine Lessons - Peer Skills

The Peer Skills program is an interactive learning experience designed to acknowledge and build on the natural listening, helping and problem solving skills of young people. The program helps young people develop their relationship skills and increases their confidence in safely assisting a friend or peer who is experiencing a problem.

School for Student Leadership - Student Equity Fund The Student Equity Fund enables people who share our vision of transformative education to contribute to this outstanding program and help ensure it is affordable and accessible for all students in the public education system.


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 four 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 fourth and newest campus, Don Valley Campus is located at Don Valley in the Yarra Ranges.
