Media Release - Hopetoun College

Term 2, 2016 - Hopetoun College Media Release

This week we got to get to know our team that we will be with for the whole term, roommates and also other people and teachers around the campus. We all enjoyed the bike riding because it was a different scenery to what we have back at home. Getting to go off campus and hike Mt Noorat was a great experience because it was the first time getting out and it was also a challenge for all of us.

We are looking forward to bridge building because it will be a good chance to test the team work amongst our team. We are also looking forward to the expo skills because it means we are getting closer to our first expo.

Favourite quote: ~ “If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.”

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.
