Thinking and Learning

Thinking and leaning is to do with learning about the brain. This is split into 2 sections.

Lesson 1 was quite interesting. The 2 teachers took turns at dressing up and being the host. They would act out different characters and you had to answer questions that the teacher would ask you about. Also you had to work out who would get along. We also had to watch a slide show about the brain. Also we got a story read to us. It was a book about a stone that didn’t fit in any walls or anywhere but at the end there was a spot for him. The book was read so we could see the different diversities.

We also learnt about the two sides of the brain and that the two halves could be cut in half again. That’s when the teachers introduced us to HBDI (Herrmann Brain Dominance Instrument). This would show all of us individually what quadrient was the strongest. We did this by circling the questions that sounded like us. Then we put it in a graph kind of thing.

Lesson 2 was about the different quadrants. The first part we did was the teacher would give you your strongest brain colour. Then he put you into groups. You then all got given this quiz thing called Zooley where you had to answer some questions by looking at the pictures. You first all did it individually then you did it in your groups. The teacher went around the different groups and would ask them to read out the question and give their answer. Then once you found out the answers the teacher asked you to answer a few questions about how you were a team player. The second half of the lesson was when you added up all your teams coloured scores together. Then you put it in a pie graph. Then the teams had to discuss what was their 8 areas of strength, what was the 4 areas of weakness and strategies to make the weaknesses stronger.

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.
