Home Sickness
At the alpine school students experience something called home sickness…

To give you a insight on why homesickness is common at alpine is because us students have never known anything different then what is at home, what we do during our day and the structure we have for ourselves. Now for a whole term, 45 students from all over Victoria are put together with a new structure and new surroundings.  We have hardly any communication from home and are not very connected to the outside world. For some, this experience is what they need but most of us students do get homesick. It comes whenever, usually when something reminds us of home or letters are sent to us. To cope, we like to help each other out, grow as a family and comfort each other when in need.

At the alpine school we do a lot of different stuff then at home, some of us have never seen snow before and this can also contribute to homesickness. As we gradually move into the middle of our stay in Term Three we get comfortable with the surroundings and our new home, we relax and enjoy every minute of it, so parents out there don’t worry about home sickness, its what we all in someway experience up here and is part of the journey of alpine school. It is not just a physically demanding campus but also very emotionally demanding in every aspect and as students we must cope with them in one way or another, so when we get back we will be very strong students and I thank the alpine school for that.

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.
