I have found my place at the Alpine School, working in the mountains, with talented, motivated young people who continually surprise and inspire us all. The best part is the community spirit, the camaraderie, the life-long friendships, the jokes, the good times, the sad times, and the fun of doing everything together. The learning that takes place here is truly transformational.

I have been involved in the Alpine School Program since 2001 and I can’t think of a better teaching job for me. I love living and working in the alpine environment in Dinner Plain. My passion is inspiring young people to get the best out of themselves during their time at our school. As the curriculum co-ordinator I relish the opportunity to work with a group of staff to create a program each term that enables students to learn, experience and grow. This occurs through students being challenged and supported through a curriculum that focusses on the needs of young people today.

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.
