My first two weeks at the Alpine School

I’ve been at The Alpine School for nearly two weeks and let me just say these have been the most full on two weeks of my life!! Having said that, it has also been the greatest two weeks.

I’ve met so many new and exciting people, not only the other students, but also the staff. At first I was overwhelmed by being in a new environment with so many new people, but then I realised that everyone was in the same boat as me. It has been amazing to talk to so many diverse people that I would never get an opportunity to talk to otherwise.

Students have travelled from all over Victoria to experience this and let me just say it is worth the number of kilometres I travelled to get here. My roommate Skye has been my rock here. If it wasn’t for her I wouldn’t have gotten through my home sickness as easily as I did. When everyone told me that my roommate and I would be close I never expected that we would be as close as we are now. She is like my sister and we talk about everything, I love her to death!

Well these two weeks have gone so quickly and I know before I know it, it will be time to leave this amazing place. I don’t think anyone could ever possibly know what we are experiencing up here in this environment. Everything about it is so different! The surroundings are astonishing to wake up to and I can’t wait till I open my curtains one day and see snow. If you ever get the opportunity to ever come to The Alpine School don’t let it pass you over because you don’t know what you’re missing out on!

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.
