An average day at TAS…

Today was just an average day at The Alpine School.

This morning I was happy to not be on meals duty, so I got to sleep in a bit. I woke up at 7:00 and made my way to breakfast. After breakfast, I cleaned my room and put on a load of washing. My room smelt a bit because my roommate just got back from expo 2. I started working early this morning on our CLP project. I kept adding to the movie we’re making for CLP presentation night and it’s looking good.

At 9:00 I had my morning class, which was intro to POL. POL stands for ‘Presentation of Learning’. This is a 30min presentation that we have to do in the last week of term in front of our expo group and teachers. In this class we were introduced to what we have to put in this presentation and brainstormed creative ways to present it. In the presentation, the main focus of it is about the progress that we’ve made at TAS. We have to talk about our achievements, looking after ourselves, leadership competencies and about how we’ve improved when working in a team.  For my presentation, I wanted to get my audience involved so I’m getting them to do an activity that shows how much I’ve grown since being at TAS.  Then, after that I will be showing an interactive power point on what I’ve done at TAS. This will include things like expos, bridge building, my 47km bike ride to Omeo on a rest day and underground river, all of which have bee amazing.

For my group’s afternoon class, we had CLP. CLP is a very interesting class at TAS because in our case, we get to plan on how to help others. For my school, Princes Hill Secondary College, our CLP topic is domestic violence. We propose to hold a lot of fundraisers at our school, and hold a stall at a local festival in our area, which in doing so will create awareness about domestic violence. All proceeds collected will them be donated to the children’s room at Mercy Care, a temporary place of accommodation for women and children who are victims of domestic violence.  So, in our class today, we spent the whole time putting together our movie about domestic violence for CLP presentation night and writing up our speeches. Unfortunately, at the end of the lesson, we had a technical problem and my laptop deleted all the work that we did today! This was really really annoying as we have a limited amount of time to complete it and had worked really hard on it. By the end of the class, we were all really tired, frustrated and over worked, so we decided to sign out to zone 3 and sit on the ski slope in our free time.

Overall, it was a fairly average day at the alpine school, and I am looking forward to tomorrow, like I do every day.

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.
