Alpine Student Life 2017

Alpine Student Life + VYLC 2014

The Opportunity of a Life Time

At my school Elizabeth Murdoch College, I applied to attend the Alpine College. I found out about it in year 8 but I didn’t know much about it, so it didn’t worry me much till I did find out more about it in April this year. As soon as applications were handed out I was so excited that during Maths I filled it out as quickly as I could and sent it to the office for the teachers to look at and say “Yep we want them, them and them.”

A few weeks went by and then the interviews came. I was so nervous my face was red, I couldn’t stop shaking and I felt like I was going to pass out. But I eventually calm down in the interview and was asked a lot of questions. After the interviews I went back to class and everybody was in my face asking “Did you get in, did you get in.” I said I don’t know yet and they seemed disappointed which kind of gave the hint they wanted to get rid of me but I didn’t mind really.

Another few weeks passed and I was in music when one of the teachers came in and asked for me and my friend. I was in the middle of a presentation and stuffed up badly because I was so nervous. She took me and my friend out and gave us envelopes. We opened them and I saw I got in and in excitement screamed but she said to keep it down and wait for my friend to open his. My friend is really bad at opening envelopes but got there eventually. When he got it he was so nervous he couldn’t read it so the teacher said he got in and we both screamed “HOORAY!!!” and again the teacher said to calm down. She congratulated us and said see you at our next meeting and me and my friend were so proud we got into our class and went crazy.

The opportunity of a lifetime

So here I am now having the time of my life and living with my new family for the next 7 weeks to come.

Till next time.

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.
