Victorian Young Leaders to China Program
Victorian Young Leaders to China Program

The Gnurad-Gundidj Campus of the School for Student Leadership is a Victorian Department of Education and Early Childhood Development (DEECD) school specialising in leadership and personal development education for students in Year 9.

This term we are part of the Victorian Young Leaders to China initiative. This means we are part of a state wide program for young Victorians to participate in a new and dynamic cultural exchange.

The program for term 3, 2015 will consist of two weeks at The Gnurad-Gundidj Campus to begin the program, then 6 weeks in China at Utahloy International School, Zheng Chen Campus, and then a final week back at The Gnurad-Gundidj Campus. A smaller group will be based at the Gnurad-Gundidj Campus for four weeks.

The Victorian Young Leaders to China (VYLC) Program is a world-class, six-week in-country immersion program for Year 9 students, designed to prepare them to live and work as citizens and future leaders in an inter-connected global community. The program aims to position Victorian secondary schools as world leaders in learning and development, with a focus on Chinese literacy, intercultural understanding and student leadership. As part of Victoria as a Learning Community and the vision to internationalise our education system, 1500 Victorian Year 9 students will travel to China over five years from 2014.

The website is www.utahloy.com/zc

At the core, the Victorian Young Leaders to China Program is about students’ developing capabilities for modern ways of living, thinking and working. This includes global knowledge, intercultural understanding and developing thinking and relationship skills for engaging in a global context such as collaboration, communication and linguistic ability. Students will participate in a rich learning program that will help them develop and demonstrate leadership skills, and to empower them to make an active contribution to their schools and communities as young leaders.

The program complements the Victorian Government’s Vision for Languages Education by sup-porting students to deepen their knowledge and understanding of another culture and language. It is designed to increase the number of students in all schools who include a language in addition to English in their senior secondary studies.

It is expected that all the rules and policies that apply at the Gnurad-Gundidj Campus, School for Student Leadership, will also apply when the students are in China.

School For Student Leadership

School for Student Leadership is a Victorian Department of Education and Early Childhood Development 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". It opened for students in term 1 2009.
