Indigenous Perspectives

Today was a very special day -  we had two indigenous men come to the Alpine School. Their names were Rob Andy and Will Bryant.

They took us at different periods of the day. 2A and 2B were in the morning and 1A and 1B were in the afternoon.  The first thing that we covered was about tribes.  We talked about how many different tribes there were in Australia - there was 880. Then we talked about what Brayakoloong, Brabuwooloong, Tatungoloong, and Krowathunkooloong clans were (they mean North, South East and West). We finished that part of the day with two dream-time stories.

We continued our day after splitting into half again. We learned about what their weapons were used for and how, also some of their musical instruments. Then we went off on a walk and they explained about many different things.

Today was a very exciting day for all of us.

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.
